Pacific Mergers and Acquisitions Insurance Update 2018


Warranties and indemnities (W&I) insurance is playing an increasingly important role in the successful completion of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions across the Pacific region. In a mature and highly competitive market, both buyers and sellers know the benefits offered by W&I insurance, and are focused on pushing the level of coverage being offered.

The Pacific Mergers and Acquisitions Insurance Update identifies a number of significant trends in the W&I market based on the transactions Marsh closed in 2017 including:

  • A growing demand for greater coverage limits
  • Historically low W&I insurance premium rates
  • Sellers increased use of W&I insurance in competitive auction processes
