Directors and Officers
Why Have Directors and Officers Insurance?
This insurance cover protects the board of a company and its directors from legal action by the company’s shareholders. Of all the routine commercial covers we are involved in this is perhaps the most nuanced. We say that because, as with all insurance protection, the benefits are only evident once things have gone wrong in some way. D&O cover will engage when things have reached a point where the shareholders sue the directors for poor management, which can encompass illegal activity as well as rank incompetence and everything in between… At the point at which the directors are sued, it could reasonably be said that the company will be in crisis. Non-executive directors can be particularly problematic where public scrutiny increasingly expect them to be the keeper of the corporate conscious, yet without the operational control to ensure compliance.
