In January 2021, Hungarian lawyer Gergely Juhasz launched Risque Finance Brokers – an independent financial services start-up offering risk management consulting services for the M&A sector.
RFB represents a spin-off from Real Estate Risk Services, a mono-line W&I insurance broker for the CEE Real Estate market that Juhasz co-founded in 2018.
"We at RFB are approaching the transactional markets from a different angle, with a focus on insuring both corporate and real estate M&A transactions as well as advising clients on the management of special corporate and operational risks" Juhasz said, while noting that, while he is exiting Real Estate Risk Services, he will continue to consulting with it on certain ongoing matters.
Prior to establishing RFB, Juhasz worked as a corporate and M&A lawyer for Allen & Overy, Bird & Bird, the Kettani Law firm, and Bitai & Partners. He also worked for AIG in London as a Compliance Officer and as an M&A Insurance Underwriter, and for Renault Credit International as a Legal and Compliance Manager and Member of the Board of Directors for RCI Insurance in Malta.
