On 19 July, the ARS Financial Services and Professional Groups Department (FSPG) and the ARS Singapore Japan Desk Team hosted a vibrant and bilingual (English-Japanese) seminar: “Aon Mergers & Acquisitions Solutions, Insurance Solutions for M&A Transactions” for our guests.
The main objective of the seminar was to share about how Warranty and Indemnity (W&I) Insurance may protect either the buyer or seller in any M&A transaction, provided that certain conditions are met.
Seishiro Kawamoto, Head of Japanese Business, Aon Risk Solutions, Asia, provided a warm welcome and introduction of the agenda to our guests.
Sandra Lee, Transactional Liability, FSPG, ARS Asia and Katsushiro Ogino, Japan Desk, ARS Singapore, proceeded to share on the salient points of Warranty and Indemnity such as:
Transaction Liability Insurance Solutions
The coverage of such solutions
Case studies of this product
Other M&A solutions
"Japanese businesses, especially those looking to expand their scale of operations, will be exceedingly interested in this product," shared Katsuhiro.
Sandra also shared that she is interested and looking forward to sharing about this product to even more business communities in Singapore.
The presentation ended with a lively Q&A session where guests were interested in finding out more about the actual process of kick starting a W&I solution.
A guest said, “I find that the ‘bilingual seminar’ in the Japanese language helps me to understand better -- especially when it comes to technical insurance terms.”
“It is very good to know that W&I could help differentiate us from other bidders, and put us in a better position during the competitive bidding stage,” shared another guest.
