Ironshore boosts its M&A unit with services provided in Mandarin

Ironshore International, a Bermuda-based insurer, has enhanced the language capabilities of its mergers and acquisitions (M&A) unit with insurance documents and services offered in Mandarin.

Ironshore developed a suite of marketing materials and policy forms produced in Mandarin to assist Chinese companies in understanding the value of insurance coverage for in-country and cross-border merger and acquisition transactions.

Dual language professional proficiency in English and Mandarin is available within Ironshore International’s M&A team of underwriters located in London and throughout the Pacific region, including Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

“Ironshore has bolstered its international M&A team with dual language underwriters and policy coverage materials in recognition of the increasing activity of Chinese investors acquiring offshore assets. Mandarin language capabilities reflect our commitment to aid Chinese buyers and sellers in understanding the value of insurance solutions for complex financial transactions,” said Rowan Bamford, global head of M&A and tax.

Ironshore International’s M&A unit provides customised insurance protection for complex transactions throughout its global platform. Ironshore M&A lines include Representations and Warranties, Warranty & Indemnity and Tax Liability coverages and related services to protect against a range of buyer and seller transactional risks.
