There are good reasons to consider Directors and Officers Liability insurance from AIG

Why boards and senior management need D&O

Administrators, managers and directors of any company, regardless of its size or activities, carry significant responsibilities in relation to the way they conduct themselves and justify the trust placed in them. This may result in claims against them for actual and alleged breach of duty, neglect, misstatements, errors and omissions.

Taking the pain out of investigation

There is a growing number of governing bodies or authorities who can investigate a company and today more attention is being focused of smaller companies. Even if an individual is not yet personally under investigation, immediate expert legal guidance can help and perhaps stop the situation becoming more serious.

Shared responsibility

As directors and managers are between them jointly and severally liable, an error on the part of one can have financial and personal consequences for the others, who may have acted completely correctly. Strong cover, that ring-fences the cover individuals can receive, can help build the confidence required to work together.

Personal and professional responsibility

Actions against the company and its management can involve a high degree of personal liability for the individuals. With potential penalties that range from hefty fines, all the way to disqualification and possible imprisonment, the need for an immediate and effective response to any threat is clear.
