Insurance Capital and Transactional Risk Solutions

Vanbridge is uniquely positioned in the transactional risk insurance space to advise our clients and create bespoke solutions that improve and derisk M & A transactions. Our interdisciplinary team approach ensures clients receive a comprehensive, well thought out solution, tailored to their specific situation, using the best possible risk capital provider.

Transactional insurance products are intended to provide a supplement or alternative to indemnification, escrows and hold-backs. Rather than funding these liabilities, these products provide protection against the contingent liability for a premium. These products also provide a mechanism for sellers to insure their contingent liabilities or indemnification obligations in connection with a transaction. Vanbridge’s Strategic and Transaction Solutions team focuses on using insurance capacity to address strategic risks and facilitate transactions on behalf of our clients.

Some of the key Vanbridge differentiators include:

Focus on Providing Solutions, Not Products

M&A transactions create unique, deal-specific risks that don’t fit into the confines of an off the shelf product. Rather than thinking only in terms of an existing product, we develop solutions using insurance capital and alternative capital resources.

Depth of Knowledge and Experience

Our team includes several of the original brokers and attorneys who developed many of these products.  This depth of knowledge and experience coupled with our senior relationships at all of the leading insurance companies assures our clients the best possible outcome on their placements.

In-House Interdisciplinary Resources

The majority of our team has significant experience in the area of M&A insurance, with an understanding of both insurance and M&A matters. This combination of the two disciplines is unmatched in the industry.

Flexibility and Ability to Operate on "Deal Time"

Flexibility and ability to operate on “deal time”.  While the insurance industry typically operates on books of business with set renewal dates. M&A transaction timelines are just the opposite. Issues arise unexpectedly and deadlines change. Vanbridge has the ability to respond in real time to resolve these issues. We make sure problems don’t fall to clients and/or their counsel — we know they’re busy getting the deal done.
