Private equity funds are a major vector of inward investment into the CEE region for the development of new infrastructure and construction projects as well as general businesses. There are also several hundred private equity funds investing in Central and Eastern Europe, the CIS and the Caucuses that are located within the region; major hubs being Moscow, Prague, Vienna and Warsaw.
While equity cannot be protected from commercial risk, there are a wealth of other factors that could affect the returns, from normal property and casualty risks through to environmental and terrorism threats. We can arrange bespoke insurance policies and coverage to cover potential liabilities arising from the Warranties and Indemnities in a contract, and thereby make a transaction possible by making the risks manageable.
Private Equity funds are professional investors with a short–term horizon, and therefore they are more interested in insurance issues because as professional investors they are more aware about protecting their investments from catastrophes, and as short-term investors they are keener to make sure nothing goes wrong during their hold period.
MAI has been acting as an insurance broker/adviser to private equity funds for several years and understands the private equity funds’ insurance issues.
