Our Clients

RCA are absolutely first class – proactive, intelligent, and commercial, they “get things done”. They know the W&I market inside out, have the right relationships, and they do not simply accept what insurers offer, but push them hard to ensure our clients obtain the best possible terms. Their advice added real value and we would happily recommend them on future deals. They are real leaders in the field.

Gideon Sharp Partner, Simmons & Simmons

We are regular users of W&I insurance, and we will always opt to work with RCA. They have provided M&A insurance advice to our funds for years and have a real understanding of the drivers of our industry, what is important to us on deals, and most importantly how to get the job done with minimum fuss and an excellent outcome.

Jamie Younger Head of Transactions (UK & Ireland), Patrizia Property Investment Managers LLP

RCA did an excellent job for us when we made our initial investment in Australia’s leading provider of radiation oncology and cardiology service. Rick and his team were responsive and available at any hour of the day (or night!) as we sought to sign up the transaction in a highly competitive process. At the end of the day working with them allowed us to achieve a lower cost of funding than we could have otherwise.

Ed Bostock Director, KKR

RCA has always provided me with first-class service and they are my go-to broker for all M&A insurance. They bring a level of expertise, experience, and speed which my clients and I really value.

I have worked with RCA numerous times and they are my preferred broker for M&A insurance. Their years of experience combined with their deep knowledge of the M&A insurance market always makes for a smooth, efficient process with a great result for my clients. I would, and do, happily recommend them to my clients and colleagues.”

Sandra Rafferty M&A Partner, White & Case

Working with RCA on our deals always gives us, and more importantly, our clients, the confidence that we will obtain a best-in-class policy delivered in an efficient and hassle-free way. The team are real experts in their field, and we work regularly with the RCA team on M&A insurance.

Herke van Hulst M&A Partner, Osborne Clarke

I have complete confidence recommending RCA to any of my clients. Their experience, combined with their ability to find solutions to particularly complicated situations, differentiates RCA from other brokers in the transactional risk market – they add real, quantifiable, value to a transaction.

Aaron Fairhurst Partner, CMS Cameron McKenna

It was an absolute pleasure to work with RCA on a recent transaction and we hope to do so again very soon. I was unsure about the insurance process for a complicated transaction in a new jurisdiction but the RCA team provided excellent guidance and helped us secure the coverage we needed. We have worked with RCA successfully on a number of transactions and have come to rely on their prompt, professional service and good advice.
