In today’s litigious society, directors and officers (D&O) are under increasing scrutiny and face personal liability for their actions. To mitigate these risks, Directors & Officers Liability Insurance plays a critical role. Shahenshah Insurance Brokers (SIB), one of Pakistan’s premier insurance brokerage firms, is here to guide businesses through this crucial area of insurance coverage.
Understanding Directors & Officers Liability Insurance
Directors & Officers Liability Insurance protects the personal assets of directors and officers by providing indemnity for loss arising from a claim as a result of a ‘wrongful act’, including an actual or alleged breach of duty, trust, neglect, error, misstatement, misleading statement, or omission.
Why D&O Insurance is Important
D&O insurance is essential for businesses of all sizes for several reasons:
- Personal Liability: Directors and officers can be held personally liable for their actions, which can result in significant financial losses.
- Attract and Retain Talent: With D&O insurance in place, businesses can attract and retain high-quality directors and officers who might otherwise be deterred by the personal financial risk.
- Legal Defense Costs: D&O insurance covers legal defense costs arising from lawsuits and investigations, which can be financially draining.
