Why You Need VCAP Insurance?

Financial institutions face costly legal issues from various sources, including limited partners, employees, vendors, and regulators. To deal with these disputes, a policy pays for legal fees and settlements for lawsuits alleging management failures or investment advisory failures. Here are some claims illustrating insurance’s importance for PE and VC firms:

Wrongful Termination

Limited partners claim that the general partners illegally ended the partnership and purchased the flourishing business assets at a significantly lower value through a different company without competing offers or auction. The limited partners believe this was a breach of the general partners’ fiduciary duty because they engaged in self-dealing.

Trade Secrets & IP

Three tech entrepreneurs developed software together. One of them shut down the company without permission and started a new one, taking the intellectual property. The other two founders sued the new company, its leaders and the venture capital firms involved for breach of duty, fraud and conspiracy.
