Directors & Officers Liability Insurance

FACULTATIVE > Casualty | Liability


Directors and Officers Liability Insurance (often called D&O) is liability insurance payable to the directors and officers of a company, or to the organization(s) itself, as indemnifications for certain damages (losses) or advancement of defense costs in the event any such insured suffers such a loss as a result of a legal action (whether criminal, civil, or administrative) brought for alleged wrongful acts in their capacity as directors and officers (as to the individual directors/officers) or against the organization(s) (either for securities claims or - if private - other actions against the organizations themselves).


With greater corporate governance and regulatory surveillance in place today, company directors and officers are under increased pressure to carry out their duties and obligations meticulously. Failure to do so may lead to personal liability for the individual director or for the entire board of directors, regardless of whether they are acting in a part-time, honorary or non-executive capacity. Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance is designed to protect the assets of company directors and other individuals of a corporation against such claims.
Key Exposures:

  • Employees - actions alleging discrimination, harassment, breach of employment contract, defamation, misleading misrepresentation, wrongful discipline, etc
  • Creditors - alleging that the director allowed the company to trade whilst knowing it could not pay its debts.
  • Government agencies - directors and officers may be personally liable for breaches of hundreds of statutes.
  • Competitors - Trade Practices Act claims brought against the directors for misleading and deceptive type conduct.
  • Shareholders - alleging that the directors mismanaged the operations of the company and its funds.
