$9.6 billion in Insured D&O and E&O Loss from the Credit Crisis

The PLUS International conference expects over 1,600 attendees in San Francisco this week including 4 from Advisen.

Timed for the start of this conference Advisen has launched a special edition newsletter (see here) to publish news stories about professional liability and most importantly, to publish unique and groundbreaking research by Advisen.

Today we started with a revised forecast (upwards) as a result of the meltdown of the subprime mortgage market and the ensuing credit crisis. for D&O insured loss. In February, Advisen forecast $3.6 billion of insured losses but as the credit crisis has mushroomed into a global financial calamity, we have revised the forecast to $5.9 billion.

The free report on D&O losses is available here.

Advisen is the first to forecast the insured loss for E&O from the credit crisis saying that E&O losses will be centered around mortgage brokers who will see thousands of smaller lawsuits and around mortgage lenders who will see fewer, but higher value suits, the total being $3.7b.

The free report on E&O losses is available here.

AIG has had top market share in both financial institution D&O (19%) and E&O (34%) and Advisen expects new insurers to enter the market. To prepare buyers, brokers & insurers for operating in the new world order in the financial services sector, Advisen has published a comprehensive 38-page study of the changed industry landscape and how it impacts on risk and insurance.

The full report on the financial services industry is available here.
