Quarterly D&O Claims Trends: Q2 2018

On Wednesday, July 25, Advisen hosted a webinar that examined the rapidly growing market for Transaction Risk Insurance (sometimes known as TRI or Representation and Warranty Insurance). This insurance has grown from obscure beginnings to become an important financial adjunct to mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. At the same time, TRI remains a less understood area of Management Liability in its dealings with private companies involved in one-time transactions. The webinar lifted the veil on this area to reveal the current trends and applications for TRI.

This free, one-hour webinar was sponsored by QBE.


The following panelists participated in the webinar:

  • Jim Blinn, Executive Vice President, Information & Analytics Division, Advisen (moderator)
  • Dennis Kearns, SVP, Underwriting Leader, QBE North America
  • Carl Metzger, Chair, Risk Management & Insurance Practice, Goodwin LLP
  • Craig Warnke, Managing Director, Transactional Risk Practice, Marsh USA Inc.

Webinar Topics

Drawing on the experience of our experienced panelists, the discussion addressed:

• Who is buying TRI and why?
• The current market landscape for the product
• Hot topics in due diligence and losses
• The impact of losses and exposures on the underwriting posture
