  • Description
    Purchasing insurance coverage is always a tricky business. What needs to be insured? How much coverage should you get? At what point are you under or over-insured? But in the investment management industry, where increased regulatory scrutiny, growth in investor activism and the threat of cyber breaches are everyday concerns, it is critical to review existing coverage to ensure it is adequate for the current climate. This CLE course, both instructive and interactive, will review key coverage issues, the types of policies available and the activities and claims covered under each.
