What is Representations and Warranties Insurance?

Contract breaches during a merger or acquisition, whether intentional or unintentional/unforeseen, result in risk exposures for both buyer and seller. RWI is M&A transaction insurance that gets triggered if any representations or warranties given in deal documents prove to be incorrect, resulting in a breach of the sale contract.
