Its a complex financial transaction, leased property payments etc. However the whole thing should have brought up red flags to an insurance underwriter, if for nothing else than the fact they had looked into having the buildings removed. When the buildings went down the insurance policies had not even been issued yet, appears they were covered with a binder from the broker. Whatever the purchase price vs the settlement amount was there was a substantial gain for Silverstein.
