Marsh Teams With Curv and Munich Re to Develop Innovative Insurance Protection for Digital Assets
Looking for an innovative insurance partner who is able to create client-specific insurance solutions in the digital asset space, including those that provide peace of mind to customers that they will have the financial capability to pay for the loss of crypto assets?
