Hedge funds and asset managers could be next, warns Marsh boss

Marsh’s head of management liability Matthew Rolph warned that hedge funds and asset managers could be next.

But he said that despite the claims arising from the Libor scandal it also presented a number of opportunities for insurers to provide cover to firms and individuals.
