Due Diligence, Mergers and Acquisitions

We perform detailed risk related due diligence for organisations and stakeholders involved in mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Our due diligence process includes reviewing exposures, assets, liabilities, losses and current risk strategies. We deliver detailed reports that examine the structure and costs of existing insurance programmes and identify any gaps in current levels of protection. We quantify any potential unfunded or under-funded past liabilities, and deliver a list of priorities to be addressed by management where capital is required for risk improvement.
