Overview:

The representations and warranties insurance (RWI) market continues to rapidly evolve as it responds to the ongoing pandemic. A number of RWI trends have started to emerge including the classification of the current crisis as a heightened due diligence area and the standardization of COVID-19 exclusions. More significantly, several other issues are yet to arise as the health crisis continues to unfold.

With COVID-related challenges and other important trends in the backdrop, it becomes more essential for companies that depend on R&W insurance to become updated. They should carefully examine and proactively address pitfalls considering the recent developments.

Join a panel of transactional risk insurance practitioners as they provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the latest trends and developments in RWI policies. Speakers will discuss, among other things, the best practices that can help companies use their insurance policy effectively in today’s fast-paced environment.

Key topics include:

  • Impact of COVID-19 on R&W Insurance
  • Other Significant Issues
  • What Companies Should Be Doing Now
  • Best Practices
  • Outlook
