E&O – Insurance Company

Businessmen discussing details

In Canada, insurance companies are subject to a number of federal and provincial regulations designed to protect both policyholders and the insurer. As one of few companies with a dedicated Financial Institutions team, we understand the nuanced exposures insurance companies face on a day-to-day basis. Our team of dedicated underwriters can custom-tailor our product offerings to provide protection from the unexpected.
