BHSI UK head of financial institutions Tom Dilley said: “Highly volatile investment and economic markets, coupled with increased regulatory oversight and operational exposures, have made investment managers increasingly vulnerable to claims.
“Our Professional First Asset Management Liability policy provides investment managers and funds in the UK and Ireland with comprehensive, customisable protection, backed by marketing-leading financial strength and claims handling expertise.”
BHSI is set to expand the Professional First suite of professional liability products with additional plans in the UK and Ireland in 2019.
