(1)purports and reasonably appears to have originated from

For the purposes of this Coverage, Client means an entity or individual which has through a written agreement with the INSURED authorized the INSURED to rely on Telefacsimile Device instructions to initiate transfers and has provided the INSURED with the names of persons authorized to make such transfers, and with which the INSURED has established an instruction verification procedure.

F-6000-0  

 

 

This Coverage (Telefacsimile Transfer Fraud) does not cover loss resulting directly or indirectly from the assumption of liability by the INSURED by contract unless the liability arises from a loss covered by the Telefacsimile Transfer Fraud Coverage and would be imposed on the INSURED without the existence of the contract.

 

Proof of loss for claim under this Coverage must include a copy of the document reproduced by the Telefacsimile Device.

 

X.UNCOLLECTIBLE ITEMS OF DEPOSIT

 

Loss directly resulting from the INSURED, in good faith and in the ordinary course of business, crediting an account of a “Customer”, shareholder or subscriber based on any “Items of Deposit” which prove to be uncollectible, if the crediting of said account causes:

 

a.redemptions or withdrawals of the account to be effected,

 

b.shares to be issued, or

 

c.payment of dividends,

 

from an account of an “Investment Company”.

 

In order for coverage to apply under this Coverage, the INSURED must hold “Items of Deposit” for the minimum number of days stated in the application before permitting any redemptions or withdrawals of the account, issuing any shares or paying any dividends with respect to such “Items of Deposit”.

This bond applies only to loss first discovered by any partner, director, trustee, officer or supervisory “Employee” of the INSURED during the Bond Period. Discovery of loss is deemed to occur at the earliest point that such individuals become aware of:

 

(1)facts which may subsequently result in a loss of a type covered by this bond, or

 

(2)an actual or potential claim in which it is alleged that the INSURED is liable to a third party,

 

regardless of when the act or acts causing or contributing to such loss occurred and even if the amount of actual or potential loss does not exceed the applicable Deductible or the exact amount or details of the loss are not known.

 

IV.NOTICE – PROOF – LEGAL PROCEEDINGS AGAINST UNDERWRITER

 

(1)At the earliest practicable time, not to exceed thirty (30) days after discovery of the loss, the INSURED shall give the UNDERWRITER notice thereof.

(4)Legal proceedings for the recovery of any loss under this bond shall not be brought prior to the expiration of sixty (60) days after the proof of loss is filed with the UNDERWRITER or after the expiration of twenty-four (24) months from the discovery of such loss.

V.LIMIT OF LIABILITY/NON-REDUCTION AND NON-ACCUMULATION OF LIABILITY

 

Prior to the termination of this bond, it shall continue in force for the limit stated in the applicable section of ITEM 3. of the DECLARATIONS, notwithstanding any previous loss for which the UNDERWRITER may have paid or be liable to pay under this bond provided, that the liability of the UNDERWRITER under this bond with respect to all loss resulting from:

 

(1)any one act of burglary, robbery or attempt thereat, in which no “Employee” is concerned or implicated, or

 

(2)any one unintentional or negligent act on the part of any one person resulting in damage to or destruction or misplacement of “Property”, or

 

(3)all acts, other than those specified in (1) above, of any one person, or

 

(4)any one casualty or event other than those specified in (1), (2), or (3) above,

 

shall be deemed to be one loss and shall be limited to the applicable Limit of Liability stated in ITEM 3. of the DECLARATIONS of this bond irrespective of the total amount of such loss or losses. The Limit of Liability shall not be cumulative in amounts from year to year or from period to period.

 

All acts, as specified in (3) above, of any one person which directly or indirectly aid in any way wrongful acts of any other person or persons or permit the continuation of wrongful acts of any other person or persons whether such acts are committed with or without the knowledge of the wrongful acts of the person so aided and whether such acts are committed with or without the intent to aid such other person, shall be deemed to be one loss with the wrongful acts of all persons so aided.

 

VI.DEDUCTIBLE

 

The UNDERWRITER shall not be liable under any Coverages under this bond because of loss unless the amount of such loss, after deducting the net amount of all reimbursement and/or recovery obtained or made by the INSURED, other than any amounts recovered under any bond or policy of insurance issued by an insurance company and covering such loss, or recoveries by the UNDERWRITER on account thereof prior to payment by the UNDERWRITER of such loss, shall exceed the Deductible set forth in ITEM 3. of the DECLARATIONS, and then for such amounts that are in excess of the deductible, but in no event for more than the applicable Limit of Liability stated in ITEM 3. of the DECLARATIONS.

 

There is no Deductible applicable to any loss under Coverage I. sustained by any “Investment Company”.

 

VII.ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND COURT COSTS

 

The UNDERWRITER will indemnify the INSURED for reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs incurred and paid by the INSURED in the defense, whether or not successful, fully litigated on the merits or settled, of any suit or legal proceeding brought against the INSURED to enforce the INSURED’S liability or alleged liability because of any loss, claim or damage which, if established against the INSURED, would constitute a loss sustained by the INSURED and covered under the terms of this bond except that with respect to Coverage I. this Section shall only apply in the event that:

 

(1)an “Employee” acknowledges being guilty of “Larceny or Embezzlement”,

 

(2)an “Employee” is adjudicated guilty of “Larceny or Embezzlement”, or

 

(3)in the absence of (1) or (2) above, an arbitration panel decides, after a review of any agreed statement of facts between the UNDERWRITER and the INSURED, that an “Employee” would be found guilty of “Larceny or Embezzlement” if such “Employee” were prosecuted.

 

The INSURED shall at the earliest practicable time, not to exceed thirty (30) days after the discovery of any such claim, suit or legal proceeding, and at the request of the UNDERWRITER, furnish copies of all pleadings and relevant papers to the UNDERWRITER. The UNDERWRITER may, at its sole option, elect to control the defense of all or part of such suit or legal proceeding. The defense by the UNDERWRITER shall be in the name of the INSURED through attorneys chosen by the UNDERWRITER. The INSURED shall provide all reasonable information and assistance required by the UNDERWRITER for such defense.

IC 00 H003 00 0803© 2003, The HartfordPage 13 of 16
F-6000-0  

 

 

If the amount demanded in a suit or legal proceeding is greater than the Limit of Liability stated in ITEM 3. of the DECLARATIONS for the applicable Coverage, or if a Deductible is applicable, or both, the UNDERWRITER’S liability for attorneys’ fees and court costs incurred in defending all or part of such suit or legal proceeding is limited to the proportion of such attorneys fees and court costs incurred that the Limit of Liability stated in ITEM 3. of the DECLARATIONS for the applicable Coverage bears to the total of the amount demanded in such suit or legal proceeding.

 

All amounts indemnified by the UNDERWRITER for attorneys’ fees and court costs shall be in addition to the Limit of Liability stated in ITEM 3. of the DECLARATIONS.

 

If the UNDERWRITER declines to defend the INSURED, no settlement or judgment against the INSURED shall determine the existence, extent or amount of coverage under this bond without the prior written consent of the UNDERWRITER and the UNDERWRITER shall not be liable for any costs, fees and expenses incurred by the INSURED.

 

VIII.VALUATION OF PROPERTY

 

The value of any loss of “Property”, other than books of account or other records used by the INSURED in the conduct of its business, shall be determined by the average market value of such “Property” on the business day immediately preceding discovery of such loss except that the value of any “Property” replaced by the INSURED with the consent of the UNDERWRITER prior to the settlement of any claim for such “Property”, shall be the actual market value at the time of replacement.

 

In the event of a loss of interim certificates, warrants, rights or other securities, (as used herein, “options”) which need to be presented to exercise the subscription, conversion, redemption or deposit privileges, their value shall be:

 

a.if such options have not expired, the average market value of such options on the business day immediately preceding the discovery of such loss, or the actual market value at the time of agreed replacement as provided in the preceding paragraph, or

 

b.if such options have expired at the time their loss is discovered, their market value immediately preceding their expiration, or

 

c.if no market price is quoted for such “Property” or for such options, the value shall be determined by agreement between the parties, or arbitration if the parties are unable to agree to the value.

 

The value of any loss of “Property” consisting of books of account or other records used by the INSURED in the conduct of its business shall be the amount paid by the INSURED for blank books, blank pages, or other materials which replace the lost books of account or other records, plus the cost of labor paid by the INSURED for the actual transcription or copying of data to reproduce such books of account or other records.

 

IX.VALUATION OF PREMISES AND FURNISHINGS

 

In the event of loss or damage to any office of the INSURED or to the furnishings, fixtures, supplies, equipment, safes or vaults, the UNDERWRITER shall not be liable for more than the actual cash value thereof, or for more than the actual cost of replacement or repair. The UNDERWRITER may, at its option, pay actual cash value or make replacement or repair. In the event the UNDERWRITER and the INSURED cannot agree upon the actual cash value or the cost of replacement or repair, it shall be determined by arbitration.

 

X.SECURITIES SETTLEMENT

 

In the event of a loss of securities covered under this bond, the UNDERWRITER may, at its sole option, purchase replacement securities, tender the value of the securities in money, or issue its indemnity in order to allow the issuance of replacement securities.

 

Indemnity will be required from the INSURED under the terms of this Section against all loss, cost or expense arising from the replacement of securities by the UNDERWRITERS. The amount of such indemnity from the INSURED shall be:

 

(1)for securities having a value of less than or equal to the applicable Deductible – one hundred percent (100%);

IC 00 H003 00 0803© 2003, The HartfordPage 14 of 16
F-6000-0  

 

 

(2)for securities having a value greater than the Deductible but within the applicable Limit of Liability – the percentage that the Deductible bears to the value of the securities;

 

(3)for securities having a value greater than the applicable Limit of Liability – the percentage that the Deductible and the portion in excess of the applicable Limit of Liability bears to the value of the securities.

 

The value referred to in (1), (2), and (3) above is the value provided for in SECTION VIII. VALUATION OF “PROPERTY”, regardless of the value of such securities at the time the loss under the UNDERWRITER’S indemnity is sustained.

 

The UNDERWRITER is not required to issue its indemnity for any portion of a loss of securities which is not covered by this bond; however, the UNDERWRITER may do so at its sole option.

 

The INSURED shall pay the applicable proportion of the UNDERWRITER’S premium charge for the UNDERWRITER’S indemnity as set for in (1), (2), and (3) above. No portion of the Limit of Liability shall be used as payment of premium for any indemnity purchased by the INSURED to obtain replacement securities.

 

XI.SUBROGATION – ASSIGNMENT – RECOVERY

 

In the event of a payment under this bond by the UNDERWRITER, the UNDERWRITER shall be subrogated to all of the INSURED’S rights of recovery against any person or entity to the extent of such payment. On the request of the UNDERWRITER, the INSURED shall deliver to the UNDERWRITER an assignment of the INSURED’S rights, title and interest and causes of action against any person or entity to the extent of such payment.

 

Recoveries, whether realized by the UNDERWRITER or by the INSURED, shall be applied after deducting the expense of such recovery, first to the INSURED’S loss which would otherwise have been paid except that it exceeds the applicable Limit of Liability, second, to the UNDERWRITER to amounts paid in settlement of the INSURED’S claim and third, to the INSURED to the applicable Deductible. Recovery from reinsurance and/or indemnity of the UNDERWRITER shall not be a recovery under this section.

 

XII.COOPERATION OF INSURED

 

At the UNDERWRITER’S request and at reasonable times and places designated by the UNDERWRITER, the INSURED shall submit to examination by the UNDERWRITER and subscribe to the same under oath, produce for the UNDERWRITER’S examination and copying, at its own expense all relevant records, and cooperate with the UNDERWRITER in all matters pertaining to the loss.

 

The INSURED shall execute all papers and provide assistance to secure for the UNDERWRITER the rights and causes of action provided for under this bond. The INSURED shall do nothing after loss to prejudice such rights or causes of action.

 

XIII.OTHER INSURANCE

 

Coverage under this bond shall apply excess over any valid and collectible insurance, indemnity or suretyship obtained by or on behalf of the INSURED or a “Transportation Company” or other entity on whose premises the loss occurred or which employed the person who caused the loss or engaged the messenger conveying the “Property” which was the subject of the loss.

 

XIV.TERMINATION-CANCELLATION

 

If the bond is for a single INSURED, it shall not be terminated or canceled unless written notice is given by the acting party to the affected party and to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Washington, D.C., not less than sixty (60) days prior to the effective date of such termination or cancellation.

 

If the bond is for a joint INSURED, it shall not be terminated or canceled unless written notice is given by the acting party to the affected party, and by the UNDERWRITER to all INSURED “Investment Companies” and to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Washington, D.C., not less than sixty (60) days prior to the effective date of such termination or cancellation.

The UNDERWRITER shall refund the unearned premium in accordance with the standard short rate cancellation tables if terminated by the INSURED or pro rata if terminated for any other reason.

 

Coverage will terminate as to any “Employee”:

 

(1)at the time that any partner, director, trustee, or officer or supervisory “Employee” not acting in collusion with such “Employee”, learns of any dishonest act committed by such “Employee” at any time, whether in the employment of the INSURED or otherwise, whether or not such act is of the type covered under this bond, and whether against the INSURED or any other person or entity or

 

(2)sixty (60) days after the receipt by each INSURED and by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Washington, D.C., of a written notice from the UNDERWRITER of its desire to terminate this bond as to such “Employee”.

 

XV.CHANGE OR MODIFICATION

 

No change in or modification of this bond shall be effective except by written rider to this bond issued by an Authorized Representative of the UNDERWRITER.

NEW YORK CANCELLATION AND NONRENEWAL RIDER

 

It is agreed that:

 

A.DEFINITIONS AND LIMITATIONS, section XIV. TERMINATION - CANCELLATION is amended as follows:

 

1.The following is added to the first and second paragraph:

 

a.If this bond has been in effect for more than sixty (60) days or, is a renewal of a bond the UNDERWRITER issued, the UNDERWRITER may cancel only for one or more of the following reasons:

 

(1)Nonpayment of premium;

 

(2)Conviction of a crime arising out of acts increasing the hazard insured against;

 

(3)Discovery of fraud or material misrepresentation in the obtaining of the bond or in the presentation of claim;

 

(4)After issuance of the bond or after the last renewal date, discovery of an act or omission, or a violation of any bond condition, that substantially and materially increases the hazard insured against, and which occurred subsequent to inception of the current bond period;

 

(5)Material change in the nature or extent of the risk, occurring after issuance or last annual renewal anniversary date of the bond, which causes the risk of loss to be substantially and materially increased beyond that contemplated at the time the bond was issued or last renewed;

 

(6)The cancellation is required pursuant to a determination by the superintendent that continuation of the present premium volume of the UNDERWRITER would jeopardize the UNDERWRITER’S solvency or be hazardous to the interest of the UNDERWRITER’S policyholders, the UNDERWRITER’S creditors or the public;

 

(7)A determination by the superintendent that the continuation of the bond would violate, or would place the UNDERWRITER in violation of, any provision of the New York State insurance laws.

 

(8)Where the UNDERWRITER has reason to believe in good faith and with sufficient cause, that there is a possible risk or danger that the INSURED will destroy, or permit to be destroyed the insured property for the purpose of collecting the insurance proceeds. If the UNDERWRITER cancels, for this reason, the INSURED may make a written request to the Insurance Department of the State of New York, within ten days of receipt of this notice, to review the UNDERWRITERS cancellation decision. The UNDERWRITER will simultaneously send a copy of this cancellation notice to the Insurance Department of the State of New York.

 

b.Notice of cancellation will be mailed or delivered to the INSURED at the address shown on the bond and to its authorized agent or broker.

 

2.If the UNDERWRITER elects not to replace a bond at the termination of the bond period, it shall notify the INSURED at least 60 but not more than 120 days before termination. If such notice is given late, the bond shall continue in effect for 60 days after such notice is given. Such notice shall be mailed to the INSURED and its broker or agent.

RIDER NO: 4

 

3.If the UNDERWRITER elects to replace the bond, but with a change of limits, reduced coverage, increased deductible, additional exclusion, or upon increased premiums in excess of ten percent (exclusive of any premium increase as a result of experience rating), the UNDERWRITER must mail written notice to the INSURED and its agent or broker at least 60 but not more than 120 days before replacement. If such notice is given late, the replacement bond shall be in effect with the same terms, conditions and rates as the terminated bond for 60 days after such notice is given.

 

4.The UNDERWRITER may elect to simply notify the INSURED that the bond will either be not renewed or renewed with different terms, conditions or rates. In this event, the UNDERWRITER will inform the INSURED that a second notice will be sent at a later date specifying the UNDERWRITER’S exact intention. The UNDERWRITER shall inform the INSURED that, in the meantime, coverage shall continue on the same terms, conditions and rates as the expiring bond until the expiration date of the bond or 60 days after the second notice is mailed or delivered, whichever is later.

No coverage is provided by this Policyholder Notice nor can it be construed to replace any provisions of your policy. You should read your policy and review your Declarations page for complete information on the coverages you are provided.

 

This Notice provides information concerning possible impact on your insurance coverage due to directives issued by the United States. Please read this Notice carefully.

 

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) of the U.S. Department of the Treasury administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on U.S. foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States. OFAC acts under Presidential national emergency powers, as well as authority granted by specific legislation, to impose controls on transactions and freeze assets under U.S. jurisdiction. OFAC publishes a list of individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific. Collectively, such individuals and companies are called “Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons” or “SDNs”. Their assets are blocked and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from dealing with them. This list can be located on OFAC’s web site at — http//www.treas.gov/ofac.

 

In accordance with OFAC regulations, if it is determined that you or any other insured, or any person or entity claiming the benefits of this insurance has violated U.S. sanctions law or is an SDN, as identified by OFAC, the policy is a blocked contract and all dealings with it must involve OFAC. When an insurance policy is considered to be such a blocked or frozen contract, no payments nor premium refunds may be made without authorization from OFAC.
