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.
