Webinar - Family Office Insurance: Risk Management in a Time of Fluctuation


Wednesday, Sep 11, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:00am CDT


Many family offices are in a period of change. New family offices continue to emerge; established family offices are shifting strategies and service models. Macroeconomic factors and the perpetually pending market downturn loom over daily operations.  In a volatile environment, management liability insurance, such as Professional Liability (E&O), Directors and Officers Liability (D&O), Crime, and Cyber Liability have more value in perpetuating family legacy than in years past.

In this webinar, we’ll explore:

  • How management liability policies align with family office needs
  • Policy structure and considerations
  • Emerging trends and market forecast
  • Benchmarking amongst family office peers
