RM 101: Directors and Officers Liability Insurance Fundamentals

 

Our “Risk Management 101: Directors and Officers Liability Insurance Fundamentals” podcast covers the basics of financial and professional liability and directors and officers (D&O) insurance.

We explain how D&O insurance protects the directors and officers of a company when they are sued and how it provides leaders of public, as well as private companies, the assurance that their assets will be protected if they are sued.

We cover:

  • Who can bring D&O claims.
  • Typical claims.
  • Who exactly is covered under D&O policies.
  • The difference between side A, side B, and side C D&O liability coverage.

We also explain how D&O insurance protects directors and officers from securities class action lawsuits and derivative actions and provide an example illustrating the importance of D&O insurance.
