The policy covered plaintiff against wrongful acts by broker-dealers and other insured persons employed by or representing plaintiff. When two of plaintiff’s clients alleged that a registered representative of plaintiff fraudulently induced them to invest money, plaintiff requested defense and indemnification. The clients alleged that plaintiff negligently failed to supervise and monitor activities by the representative. Defendant first asserted that the claims arose from a wrongful act prior to coverage.
