Directors and Officers Insurance Overview

Monday, 16 May 2022
11:00 am – 12:00 pm (UK time)
    • Alan Chandler, Alan Chandler Training

Session Outline

The webinar will briefly explain the history of D&O and how the D&O marketplace is changing dramatically due to the economy. The sad fact is that many businesses will struggle badly over the next few years and lots of redundancies will have to be made. This will result in a sharp spike in both Directors and Officers and Employment Liability Practices claims. The market will harden and that is why it is essential brokers have conversations with their clients now. It should also be noted that many more directors are being sued individually and that the amount of HSE prosecutions have trebled against individual directors since 2015.

This is no longer a cover that ANY director can ignore, and ironically if a director refuses D&O without consulting their fellow directors they have massively increased their own personal D&O exposure!
