“We want to be responsive, we want to be creative, and we want to be on the forefront of meeting the needs of the ever-changing private equity landscape.”


Our process

Before closing, our transactional risk products that facilitate M&A – such as representations, and warranty and tax indemnity coverage – allow parties to efficiently allocate the risk.

After closing the transaction, existing casualty liabilities can be managed through loss portfolio transfers and close-outs, and a variety of liability products and directors and officers insurance.

Chubb also offers a range of ongoing insurance products, detailed below.

Specialized M&A and PE insurance can cover you against many forms of risk inherent in mergers and acquisitions

Management liability insurance

Chubb’s suite of management liability products are specifically designed to address the exposures of private and not-for-profit companies. Regardless of your size or industry, we have an insurance solution for you.

Global transactional risk insurance

This covers both the buyer and seller for risks connected to the underlying deal in a merger and acquisition. 

Multinational insurance

U.S.-based companies with global operations want their insurance programs to be consistent across their sites and operations. Chubb’s tailored multinational coverage can help smooth that process.

Cyber insurance

Our cyber enterprise risk management insurance covers business interruption loss due to a network failure or attack, as well as investigation costs, legal costs, and other expenses.

Property insurance

Supported by our exceptional risk engineering, claims services, and global capabilities, our dedicated underwriters tailor your property coverage to meet the unique needs of your business.

Workers compensation insurance

Companies of all sizes can get customized coverage with features like proactive managed care to speed return-to-work timeframes, fraud detection and management, and litigation and recovery management.


Private equity insurance programs

Private equity presents a unique set of exposures that can result in third-party lawsuits. Guard against that risk with our specialized coverage, which can include management liability, D&O for PE, outside director liability, professional liability, and employment practices liability.
