Baronsmead Partners, the specialist risk consultant and
insurance broker to the alternative investment industry, has
carried out its second hedge fund insurance benchmarking survey
showing the changing trends for professional indemnity (PI) and
directors' and officers' liability (D&O) insurance at a
time of heightened market, investor and regulatory risk.
The firm surveyed UK hedge fund managers and insurers
between November 2011 and April 2012 - widening the scope of
the survey this time to include responses from nine leading
hedge fund insurers. There were also a number of in-depth
interviews with hedge fund COOs, general counsels and managers
to gain additional insight.
