The growth and success of the Private Equity sector has been unparalleled, and with such success comes increased regulation, litigation and other unforeseen risks. Managing for those risks is critical to a firm’s success, and CAC Specialty provides best-in-class insurance and risk transfer solutions. The Sponsor Insurance practice is uniquely able to create a strategic and efficient approach to managing the precise risks faced by Private Equity firms.
An Everchanging Environment
An experienced broker, advocating on your behalf, is more critical than ever. Private Equity firms face increased headwinds in the insurance marketplace, with rising premium and retention rates, coupled with diminishing capacity and coverage. This trend does not appear to be decelerating in the near future, creating a difficult environment for Private Equity firms to secure broad and cost-effective insurance.
