R&W / W&I

Our Representations and Warranties (R&W) insurance, also known as Warranty and Indemnity (W&I) insurance, mitigates risks for both buyers and sellers in transactions by transferring financial liability for breaches of representations and warranties to the insurer. Among other benefits, our offering facilitates smoother deal negotiations, enhances deal certainty, and allows parties to allocate capital more efficiently, thereby fostering a more robust and expedited transaction process including in our bespoke real estate underwriting.
