Understanding Representations and Warranties Insurance in M&A

The use of representations and warranties insurance (RWI) has increasingly become an important tool to bridge negotiation gaps and close deals that otherwise might not get done.

In this whitepaper, senior M&A executive Javier Enrile dives into how representations and warranties insurance can play an integral part of negotiating transactions, winning bids, and finding a means of closing deals in today’s challenging M&A environment. 

This whitepaper addresses key questions:

  • When is the best time to utilize RWI?
  • What are the benefits for the seller?
  • What are the benefits for the buyer?
  • What should the insurance cover and what should it exclude?
  • How is the coverage typically priced?
  • How do you find the best carrier?
