The Canopius product has been developed to respond to shifts in the risk landscape within the highly regulated asset management sector.
Furthermore, the firm states that this product will provide a robust safety net.
It offers protection for asset managers from a range of financial liabilities such as directors and officers liability, civil liability and financial crime.
In addition, it can be extended to legal liability for private equity and venture capital firm representatives on portoflio companies.
Also, the product has been designed by Canopius to react to a large number of scenarios specific to the asset management sector.
Matthew Carr, head of FINPRO at Canopius, said: “As the asset management industry continues to navigate an increasingly challenging regulatory landscape, the demand for comprehensive cover has never been greater. Our product sets a new standard by drawing upon our extensive underwriting experience. We are delighted to launch this product to support our expansion in this important market segment.”
