About Directors and Officers ("D and O") Insurance

board of directors Directors and Officers ("D and O") insurance is a type of liability insurance that protects the personal assets of your company or organization's officers in the event they sued by clients, employees and/or stockholders for something which occurs during the performance of their duties. Few people are willing to serve in a position that exposes their personal finances to risk, so while not mandated by law, it is customary to provide D and O insurance for your directors and officers.

Choosing Directors' and Officers' insurance is a complicated process. In addition to premiums and deductibles, various stipulations, exclusions, endorsements and coverage offsets come into play, and the costs of D&O insurance have risen sharply in recent years. The coverage you should have will vary according to the activities, size, needs and requirements of your company or organization. Bottom line: Directors' and Officers' insurance is not a "one size fits all" product, and If you don't fully understand your options it's easy to end up either underinsured or paying for costly options which you don't need!
