In every business, there could be an opportunity for a compensation claim to be made against the key figures in the organisation. That is why directors and officers insurance can cover you for the worst possible eventualities. Being a key member of staff within an organisation brings power and responsibilities. Therefore, if a Director is proven to have acted wrongfully, criminal or civil proceedings may begin. A claim could be made by shareholders, investors, regulators, employees or third parties.
Regardless of your company’s size, the legal cost to defend a Director is substantial, as are the potential penalties that can be personally incurred.
Due to liability risks, protecting boardroom talent can be a challenge. To help ensure both your officers’ as well as the company’s well-being, a directors’ and officers’ liability insurance policy is part of a comprehensive risk financing strategy.
Our Directors and Officers policy can protect your key people against a wide range of wrongful acts including:
- Breaching trust
- Breach of duty
- Misleading statements
- Wrongful trading
Whether you are a non-profit, privately held or a public company, it is likely that your business can benefit from a directors and officers insurance policy. There is no such thing as a ‘standard’ policy, a professional broker like Douglas Insurance is invaluable when purchasing directors and officers cover.
