ASQ Underwriting has rolled out a bespoke transactional risk insurance programme in a bid to serve broker trading partners in North America.
The company will underwrite representations and warranties insurance, tax liability insurance, as well as contingent risk insurance.
New York-based ASQ is part of program administrator Alliant Underwriting Solutions.
Alliant Underwriting Solutions president Sean McConlogue said: “The launch of the ASQ M&A solution exemplifies, day one, ‘relevance amplified’ to our broker partners.
“It’s an incredible combination of talent, experience, and capacity.”
ASQ is headed by directors and co-founders Jeff Anderson and Wayne Datz. The two have underwriting experience in mergers & acquisitions, law, and insurance.
The company’s team also includes Ryan Anderson and Andrew Belisle, with experience in transactional risk underwriting.
Besides New York, the company also has a branch in Atlanta.
“As experienced M&A attorneys, our underwriters have a keen understanding of the types of mistakes that can derail a transaction as well as the need for thorough and efficient underwriting. We pride ourselves on our underwriting execution to enable our clients to finalise their transactions successfully,” Anderson noted.
