Risk Advisor SKCG Taps Siebner To Oversee D&O, E&O Products

Mar 29 2011 | 8:26am ET

SKCG Group, a privately-held insurance and risk management advisory firm, has beefed up its global hedge fund and private equity practice with the addition of insurance industry vet Wayne Siebner.

Siebner, who will become senior vice president and manager of executive and professional liability, comes to SKCG from Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services, where he held a number of positions, the most recent being area executive vice president for financial products, corporate accounts and marketing units.

In his new role, Siebner will focus on directors and officers and errors and omissions insurance, which hedge funds and asset management firms purchase to protect themselves from costs stemming from SEC investigations and investor lawsuits.   Siebner will be joining SKCG Group at a time when lower costs and increased investor demand for this type of insurance has increased hedge funds’ interest for the product.
 
“Wayne’s 32 years of industry experience complements SKCG’s long history of providing sophisticated advice on D&O and E&O Insurance products and services across a broad spectrum of public, private and not-for-profit commercial and financial service industry sectors,” said Thomas Kozera, CEO of SKCG Group.
