Quarterly D&O Claims Webinar – Cryptocurrency Focus

Tuesday, May 1

The emergence of cryptocurrency has given rise to a new set of challenges in the D&O marketplace. On Tuesday, May 1 Advisen hosted a webinar that explored the topic of cryptocurrency and Initial Coin Offerings (ICO’s). Because of the complex and rapidly evolving nature of the topic, we dedicated the full hour to the topic and dispense with our usual review of D&O losses for the first quarter of 2018. Advisen’s Jim Blinn and a panel of experts discussed this fascinating topic.


The following panelists participated in the webinar:

  • Kevin LaCroix, RT ProExec, a division of RT Specialty, and author of the D&O Diary
