Financial Institutions policies are among the most complex in the insurance industry. The specialists at Program Brokerage Corporation (PBC) have over 30 years of experience working for, underwriting to, and representing financial institutions.

Litigation involving financial institutions is at an all time high. Do you have the proper coverage in place for the continuing and expanding regulatory exposures?

The continuing evolvement of investor and regulatory litigation has resulted in a dramatic increase of management and professional liability exposures for all sectors within the financial institution community. The statistics are staggering. Prior to 2008 and the financial crisis, regulatory claims represented 20% of all claims. Today, it is upwards of 80% and it is not slowing down. In 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed more actions than ever before in the history of commission.

SEC Propsals Target Mutual Funds
New advice and investment firm rules would change the fund universe.
Proposed fiduciary standards from the SEC will require representateies to select investments in the best interests of investors. This includes the requirement for fund managers that invest in derivatives to establish a chief risk officer position. These regulations may raise the barriers of entry to the mutual fund industry even higher because they would cause fund managers to incur substantial expense.
Cases range from the following:
  • Significant market structure cases against exchanges, alternative trading systems and broker-dealers.
  • Important financial reporting and audit cases, including fraud cases, cases against auditors and violations of the internal controls requirements.
  • Insider trading cases against traders of all different types.
  • Microcap fraud cases against repeat players.
  • Asset management cases, including misrepresentations.
  • Important cases relating to complex products and credit ratings.
