What is Directors & Officers Liability Insurance?

Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Insurance plays a significant role in protecting individual Directors against their personal liability should a claim be brought against them for their wrongful acts.
Key risks to your business include; Regulatory Investigations & Prosecutions, Employee & Third Party Fraud, Shareholder/Investor Claims, Cybercrime, Non-internet identity fraud, Contract disputes, Cyber liability, Pension claims, Data protection breaches, Pollution claims.
This section provides coverage to employers against claims made by employees alleging, for example; harassment, discrimination, wrongful/unfair dismissal and failure to promote/negligent evaluation.
Pension trustee liability insurance also provides cover for the company and its pension plan. That’s because while in theory the trustee may be personally liable, in practice the risk is often carried by the employer or the pension plan by indemnities and exoneration clauses.
This extension provides cover against fraudulent or dishonest activities carried out by employees or outside third parties, or collusion between internal staff and external parties such as suppliers, including investigation costs and expenses.

What Does It Do?

Directors’ and officers’ liability insurance – also known as D&O insurance – covers the cost of compensation claims made against your business’s directors and key managers (officers) for alleged wrongful acts.

Wrongful acts include:

  • Breach of trust

  • Breach of duty

  • Neglect

  • Error

  • Misleading statements

  • Wrongful trading
