What is Directors and Officers insurance?

Directors and officers (D&O) insurance offers personal liability cover for company directors, officers and managers. We know you have to make tough decisions within your everyday role and we can all make mistakes - so it’s designed to protect you from claims that may arise from decisions and actions taken within the scope of your regular duties.

Do I need Directors and Officers insurance?

As a company executive you could be held personally and legally liable for claims that arise from your business decisions and actions. Many business owners are under the impression that as a director of a limited company, your individual liability is limited to your share, or investment, in the business. This is not always the case. Individual directors of a business can be prosecuted for acting outside the capacity of their role, particularly if there are financial or legal implications.

Directors and officers insurance can protect you and your business against wrongful acts committed by a key person within the business. If a key manager acted outside of the remit of their role, they could be pursued for compensation by shareholders, regulators, employees or other third parties. D&O insurance not only covers legal defence costs, but would also cover any compensation awarded as a result of an unsuccessful legal defence.

Cover to fit your business

Directors and officers insurance is typically purchased as a stand-alone policy, in addition to your business insurance policy, to protect key individuals within your business. We can arrange directors and officers cover tailored to your individual requirements.
