Arthur J Gallagher enhances IMI Pro

RELATED TOPICS​

Arthur J Gallagher has enhanced its liability and crime insurance solution for investment managers IMI Pro to provide its broadest cover yet.

The Gallagher-designed policy, backed by ‘A+’ rated capacity, responds to the needs of managers and funds by covering personal liability, civil liability and crime in one comprehensive package exclusive to Gallagher clients.
 
Notable enhancements include:
 
Full limit mitigation cover — insureds can take mitigating action immediately, without obtaining insurers’ prior consent, to the full limit of the policy. This will cover payments made and costs incurred in seeking to avoid claims that would be covered under the policy were they to be made;
 
Costs cover for both actual and threatened regulatory investigations — for directors and officers, the manager and funds; 
 
Clear and precise notification requirements — claims notification only triggered by a specified person’s awareness of a written demand (not ‘oral’ and not ‘company’s knowledge’);
 
Broader cover for cyber risks;
 
Cover for additional costs and expenses resulting from a range of adverse events and contingencies, such as the freezing of personal assets or court attendance payments.
 
Matthew Hughes (pictured), Divisional Director, Financial and Professional Risks at Arthur J Gallagher, says: “The insurance landscape for investment managers is extremely competitive, creating a positive risk transfer environment. With regulatory investigations on the rise — including those closed without a public outcome or fine but costly to defend — and cyber criminals finding ever more inventive ways to attack the systems of investment managers, speed of response and the freedom to take mitigating action are vitally important.
 
“The enhancements we’ve made to IMI Pro place it at the forefront of what is available in the market in terms of the scope of cover it affords, while maintaining broad non-disclosure language to ensure that the policy can respond even as risk exposures continue to shift.”
