Protecting Investment Advisers and Funds

Protecting Investment Advisers, Registered Mutual Funds, and Private/Hedge Funds is our core competency. Investment complexes large and small rely on Professional liability programs that we have designed specifically for their needs.

  • We interact with many of our Fund clients’ boards, providing updates on market trends, presenting renewal options and addressing any concerns that Independent Directors may have about the insurance coverages.
  • We also work with many registered Investment Advisers, some of which have funds and some of which do not. These Advisers are of varying sizes, all around the country and abroad.

Dedicated Expertise in the Risks of Advisers and Funds

These services will be delivered to your firm or fund by dedicated professionals with many years of experience in this specialty practice. These specialty coverages for your Advisory firm or Fund include: Professional Liability (E&O), Directors and Officers Liability (D&O), Fidelity Bonds of various kinds, Employment Practices Liability (EPL), Fiduciary Liability, and Cyber Liability.

Every member of your assigned Willis team is hand-picked to match your firm/fund’s risk profile, needs and requirements. Our team members understand your critical issues, including:

  • Rapidly developing regulatory requirements
  • Evolving legal scrutiny and litigation trends
  • Privacy and network security
  • Board Governance
  • Cost allocation
  • Bond requirements
  • New products for the Adviser/Fund arena
  • Board vs. Adviser issues
  • Outside Directorship
  • Certificate needs

Our team continually monitors legal, legislative and regulatory activity throughout the world, as well as trends in the insurance marketplace. We can also refer you other departments at Willis for placements in other insurance areas, such as property-casualty programs and business continuity arrangements.

Your Strongest Claims Advocate

Where a true advocate earns their stripes in the face of adversity, in a challenging claim situation.

Being your strongest advocate during a claim is always the most important part of our client service, and it is one of our strongest differentiators. Why? Because our claims professionals are our brokerage professionals. They understand the policy language as they are placing the coverage, so they understand the intent of the policy wordings specific to the Adviser/Fund policies of each carrier. In addition, they are ready to get a carrier’s underwriting staff involved with the carrier’s claims people to make sure the interpretations are explained. Your Claim Advocate is also ready to prod the process along when it slows down.
