Webinar: Uncovering Opportunity Globally with Distressed Transactions

Challenging times can present opportunities for those professionals looking in the right places with the right valuation and risk controls in place. In this session, our speakers examine how businesses can leverage insurance capital to secure distressed transactions and unlock funds, including an overview of the distressed market and the use of representations and warranties insurance to enhance asset values that no longer need to be purchased on an “as is, where is” basis. We also look at how reserves can be reduced for pending litigation, tax obligations, or other contingencies to enhance returns and review insurance instruments that can help you through the lifecycle of an insolvency procedure.
