about Directors & Officers Insurance.


Directors and Officers (D&O) Insurance is a type of liability insurance designed to protect the personal assets of directors and officers of a company in the event they are sued for alleged wrongful acts committed in their managerial roles. These wrongful acts could include decisions, omissions, or breaches of duty that result in financial losses or legal claims against the company.

D&O insurance provides coverage for legal defence costs, investigations, settlements, and judgments that arise from such claims. In addition, some policies include a PR crisis management service covering your costs in using public relations specialist to deal with adverse press, publicity or media attention where there is a risk to your livelihood as a consequence of such attention.

D&O Insurance is important because directors and officers can be held personally liable for their decisions and actions, and their personal assets could be at risk without adequate protection. This is the case also with directors and officers of limited companies and not-for-profit companies, like property RTM (Right-to-Manage) companies.

This insurance is essential to attract and retain qualified individuals for leadership roles within a company, as it helps mitigate the financial risks associated with their responsibilities. D&O insurance is typically purchased by the company on behalf of its directors and officers, and it can be customised to address the specific risks and needs of the organisation.
