Risk and Insurance Diligence

Thorough due diligence quantifies quality of earnings and balance sheet decision points and retained and transferred risks, while also identifying go-forward options to understand and quantify the risks assumed as a deal is negotiated. Aon’s M&A diligence professionals identify deficiencies and opportunities, and offer solutions that can affect deal terms, purchase price, and return on investment. We address situations ranging from uncovered emerging risks to appropriateness of collateral.
