Today's buyers and sellers are more cautious when negotiating M&A deals as complex and difficult problems can unexpectedly surface. Insurance has become an increasingly favorite tool among top dealmakers to help provide cover if the deal goes sour.
Transactional Insurance such as representations and warranties insurance, contingent liability insurance, and tax indemnity insurance are of high demand in today's M&A transactions. Buyers and sellers find these insurance as an effective tool in resolving deal issues, particularly matters on protecting post-closing erosion of value.
