Alta Signa launches D&O cover

European boutique MGA, Alta Signa Europe, has announced its move into the directors’ and officer’s liability market, providing tailored primary D&O insurance for SMEs with revenue of EUR50 to EUR500m.

Alta Signa is backed by five capacity providers from both the company markets and Lloyd’s.

Alta Signa branch manager, Italy, Marina Chierici, said: “There is a gap in the primary Italian D&O market for an insurance proposition backed by local expertise and service, offering tailor-made quotes. In a market geared towards facilities and automatic quoting systems, speaking with local Tier 1 and Tier 2 brokers revealed strong demand for non-standard solutions from a proactive and responsive provider. I’m really pleased to be able to provide this offering, which, backed by our in-house claims team, brings the highly efficient and individualised service that we know Italian regional brokers are looking for.”
