Private Equity+®

Private Equity firms engage in activities from startup equity financing to the buy-out of a portfolio company to advising or serving on the board of directors. Such a wide range of responsibilities create unique personal and business exposures that could result in third party lawsuits for performing or failing to perform these functions. However, Chubb has an insurance solution for you.
