What are Representations and Warranties?

Representations and warranties in business contracts provide facts (representations) and security against loss (warranties) if the statements made are not true. Representations and warranties may also be shortened to "represents and warrants" in a contract.

If the representation in the contract is found to be false, it is called "inaccurate," while a false warranty is considered breached. Representations always refer to past information, as it is impossible for a company or individual to present future information as factual.

Every contract between two parties includes representations and warranties. For example, if you decide to go to an auto dealership to buy a car, you would enter this transaction with several representations, such as:

Key Man Clause

What Is the Key Man Clause?

A key man clause (or key person clause) says that when certain executives of an investment firm are absent, the firm cannot make any new investments until they replace them. Investments need constant watching. Therefore, it's important for investment firms to always have someone in charge.

Key man clauses trigger anytime the executives named by the clause aren't spending enough time managing the firm's investments. This can happen if the executive:

  • Dies
  • Suffers a permanent or long-term disability
  • Spends too much time at another job

  • Is convicted of a serious crime

Whatever the cause happens to be, if the executive can't do his or her job, the key man clause puts investing on hold at the very least. Sometimes it means the investment firm has to end, depending on how big the firm is and how important the key person was. When
