Representations & Warranties (W&I)

Mergers, acquisitions and disposals present unique risks. Our dedicated team manages those risks for you, letting you close the deal.

Any deal, regardless of size or complexity, can run into trouble. To keep things moving, TMHCC offers transactional risk insurance to bridge the gap between the deal parties’ positions (typically between buyer and seller) and can even enhance them.

Representations & Warranties (W&I) insurance provides significant advantages to both parties, safeguarding against loss from breach of warranty or a misrepresentation on behalf of the seller. It can also provide a strategic tool for buyers to gain a competitive edge against other bidders.

Summary of coverage

Representations & Warranties (W&I) insurance programs facilitate the sale and purchase process. Both buyer-side and seller-side policies are available and the policy is structured to meet the risk retention and recourse requirements of the deal parties.

W&I insurance provides a convenient solution to both buyers and sellers and presents significant advantages, such as:

  • A commercially viable alternative to security traditionally sought through costlier and less satisfactory means (such as an escrow account, bank guarantee or letter of credit)
  • A simpler and more effective method of seeking indemnity against a loss resulting from a breach of warranty or tax deed / covenant in a sale and purchase agreement
  • A tool to mitigate the vendor's risk for liabilities arising from innocent misrepresentations made by the vendor
  • Coverage, afforded to the buyer, for financial loss as a result of any misrepresentations (innocent or otherwise) made by the vendor
  • A strategic tool to give the buyer a competitive edge against other bidders for the purchase or to make the vendor's offer more appealing, as the risk is transferred to a financially sound insurer
