Lessons for Both Sides
All businesses are, or should be, concerned with protecting themselves from employee fraud, dishonesty, embezzlement and/or lost resulting from fraud by a counter-party. Unfortunately, these incidents are on the rise. For the policyholder, it is important to understand what may be covered under financial institution or crime bonds, how to effectively recognize a potentially covered loss and handle the submission of a claim and the insurer’s investigation. The insurer, for its part, must understand how to investigate a submitted claim in a manner that both protects its rights, but is sensitive to the needs of the policyholder.
