Directors and Officers Insurance

Directors and Officers Insurance Insight  |  A ‘Wrongful Act’ Can Be Covered

Unlike commercial general liability insurance (CGL) which only covers property damage and bodily injury, directors and officers insurance specifically covers a “wrongful act,” such as an actual or alleged error, omission, misleading statement, neglect or breach of duty.

ANY Board Decision Could Put Your Business At Risk
Corporate transparency and accountability are critical to your success. With regulatory mandates and shareholder activism making social media and headline news, each decision your directors and officers make can quickly be judged under a very public microscope. If a worst-case situation arises, your privately held company or non-profit may face litigation as a direct result of your board’s decisions.

[Did you know?] Indemnification provisions are typically included in a corporation’s charter and/or bylaws. However, a small to mid-size privately held company &/or non-profit may not have the financial resources to fund the indemnity provisions, making the bylaws hollow. In the event of a covered loss, an ALIGNED directors and officers insurance policy can provide an extra layer of security.

The legal cost to defend individual directors and officers is substantial, as are the potential penalties that can impact their personal assets.
Your directors and officers insurance policy may include:

  • Defense costs and indemnity coverage to the entity listed on the policy declarations
  • Coverage for past, present and future directors and officers of the company
  • Reimbursement to the organization for a contractual obligation to indemnify directors and officers who serve on the board

Because your directors’ and officers’ personal liability risks are not covered under ANY personal insurance policy—to attract and retain boardroom talent, you need to first provide the best risk protection. ALIGNED directors and officers insurance is an important cornerstone of a comprehensive risk management strategy.
