Empower Financial Lines underwriters with the Underwriting Tool to identify adverse corporate events that expose Directors and Officers to Securities Class Action Risk and make effective data-driven and risk-based D&O policy coverage and pricing determinations.

UNDERWRITING  TOOL

The Underwriting Tool provides senior level public company underwriters and specialized brokers with the periodic quantification of securities class action risk based on adverse corporate events that expose Directors and Officers to Rule 10b-5 liability.

The Underwriting Tool enhances public company underwriting with substantive company-specific analysis to accurately identify adverse corporate events that expose Directors and Officers to securities class action risk.  Adverse corporate events that have materialized during the applicable statute of limitations may trigger indemnifiable securities claims for alleged violations of the Exchange Act.  The Underwriting Tool delivers loss mitigation underwriting analytics based on the court-accepted event study methodology.
