Directors and Officers Insurance
Protect Good Leadership
As company leaders, directors and officers are responsible for everything that happens under their watch — quality control, sales and revenue, customer experience, regulatory compliance, and more.
Negligence can quickly erode a legacy of good leadership. Companies look to their leaders to lead the charge, but they can’t with lawsuits in their way.
Insurance Made for Leaders
Protect Great Power and Responsibility Against Liability
D&O insurance covers executives in the event of a lawsuit brought directly against them, citing their decisions and actions as company leaders. Here’s how:
- Liability coverage: Coverage for legal fees, including defence costs and settlements
- Financial protection: Extends coverage to personal assets, which would otherwise be used to cover liability
- Business continuity: Preserves confidence in company leadership and protects their ability to lead amidst allegations of wrongful acts committed in their capacity.

D&O Insurance Coverage
Risk Reduction. Loss Prevention. Confidence in Leadership.
Success is a total team effort. Even good leaders need the right support to be effective.
This includes protection from actions that threaten the legacy they’ve built and the successes they’ve delivered with utmost passion, commitment, and expertise. Avoid high turnover and business interruptions with the right D&O liability coverage:
Personal asset protection
When directors and officers are named in a lawsuit alleging negligence or breach of duty, it comes with heavy financial costs, including legal fees and settlements. Without D&O insurance, executives are forced to handle the financial liability on their own.
Get the right liability coverage for civil, criminal, judicial, administrative, regulatory, or arbitration proceedings. Directors and officers insurance helps cover these costs to secure your organization’s financial health.
Workplace and employment protection
D&O liability coverage provides financial protection when leaders are held liable for breach of fiduciary duty, and allegations of harassment, discrimination, or wrongful termination.
