Mergers and Acquisitions


Whilst not a replacement for thorough due diligence during a Mergers & Acquisitions deal, both buyers and sellers can put additional insurances in place to protect themselves against financial loss as a result of a warranty breach.

For unknown risks, Warranty & Indemnity (W&I) insurance helps to facilitate a smooth transaction and reduces the need for an escrow arrangement whilst for known issues, tax liability and contingent liability policies give peace of mind beyond completion of the deal itself.

What’s great about M&A Underwriting from Aviva?

Our W&I insurance cover includes contractual damages, associated fees, emergency defence costs and buyer loss as a result of seller fraud.

Our tax and contingent liability product will provide cover in the event that the legal interpretation of a tax requirement or other liability is challenged or overturned post-completion, resulting in a demand for payment.

The strength of our ratings and stable outlook demonstrate our industry standing and long-term commitment to our brokers and clients. We pride ourselves on our client-centric approach and our teams of specialist underwriters have a wealth of technical knowledge, allowing them to tailor bespoke insurance packages to exact client needs.

This, supported by market-leading claims experts and a dedicated Client Relationship Management team, is what truly makes a world of difference.
