Directors and Officers Insurance Defence

Director's or officer's personal assets are at risk. While the liability of a company is limited, a director's is unlimited. Directors' & Officers' Liability Insurance (D&O) is now a prerequisite for attracting and retaining key people as they operate in an increasingly complex environment with expectations of stakeholders higher than ever before.

A typical D&O policy covers:
  • All the directors & officers of the company & its subsidiaries
  • Financial loss arising out of actual or alleged wrongful acts
  • Defence costs & expenses
  • Investigation costs
  • Extradition costs
Positions held on the board of associated companies
