Chubb Introduces First-of-Its-Kind Financial Institution Fidelity Bond to Address Unique Risks Faced by Asset Managers

WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J., Dec. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Chubb has introduced a new fidelity insurance solution, the Financial Institution Bond for Asset Managers, to address the unique range of risks faced by today’s asset managers. This new financial fidelity bond provides modernized coverage for a range of risks that can result in loss of customer capital. These types of risks often stem from fraudulent activities of employees, computer hacking and impersonation of executives, clients, and counterparties.

Chubb designed its new fidelity bond in response to the changing risks associated with advancements in technology used by advisers to manage assets. According to a 2017 PwC report on the future of the asset and wealth management industry, assets under management globally are expected to exceed $145 trillion by 2025.
