Chubb Primary: Directors & Officers and Entity Securities Liability Insurance


Highly publicized accounting fraud and stock scandals are just some of the reasons directors and officers have a heightened interest in understanding what insurance protection their company purchases. Your executives are well aware they may be:

  • Held personally liable for the decisions they make on behalf of the company.
  • Sued for breach of their fiduciary duties.
  • The target of a lawsuit from shareholders, regulatory agencies or employees.

Selecting a policy written in user-friendly language that is easy to understand will help your executives understand how your D&O policy is intended to perform should your company experience a claim.

Your company has specific needs and exposures and quite possibly international risks that you want to be sure your D&O policy addresses. As you contemplate your D&O liability insurance needs, consider these business questions:

  • How will a claim be handled should you experience a securities class-action suit?
  • How will your policy respond to other types of claims?
  • Will your directors’ and officers’ personal assets be covered?
  • How could growing U.S. and foreign regulatory investigations impact you?
  • Is your policy designed to provide proper protection if your company undergoes a merger?
