Helping Private Equity Clients

The Risk Strategies Private Equity Practice includes industry leaders from our specialty divisions Krauter and Company and Securitas Insurance Partners. Our Private Equity practice handles new deals and existing portfolio risk for firms, including property and casualty, benefits, keyman and all transitional risk lines such as representation and warranty insurance.

As the largest, dedicated, centrally run private equity practice in the industry, our team has a deep understanding of what private equity firms with growing portfolios need to mitigate risk. With our longstanding history in the market, our partnership is essential for catching vulnerabilities and liabilities hiding within business opportunities.

As brokers, we understand the particular exposures you will face in all facets of your business. Our team will work with you every day to provide detailed risk analysis and recommendations spanning a number of unique issues that can cause deals to fall through or bad deals to close.

  • One misstep in the due diligence phase can cost you an additional tens of millions of dollars on the purchase price, due to high prices of EBITDA
  • Bankruptcy is difficult to recover from while trying to stay in the top quartile and attract new investors, particularly when a fund loses everything on a deal
  • Firms often struggle to find ways to cut costs following an acquisition
  • In a competitive market, it can be difficult to find the best deals for acquiring companies

You will receive tailored planning and advice to meet your unique needs. Our solutions cover nearly every possibility, allowing us to craft programs that protect the firm against missteps, bankruptcy, and bad deals.

  • Due diligence experts with decades of experience and the ability to foresee issues before they occur
  • Proprietary products to prevent portfolio companies from bankruptcy, insufficient umbrellas and D&O limitations
