Frequently Asked Questions need some help?

What is Directors and Officers Insurance?

Directors & Officers (D&O) is liability insurance for the directors and officers of a company. If someone alleges you’ve done a wrongful act when running your business, then they can sue the company, which means they can sue you. D&O Insurance offers protection for claims against you as an individual.

Am I protected against claims made by investors?

If your company has directors or key managers, directors’ and officers’ liability insurance can cover the cost of compensation claims made against them by shareholders, investors, employees, regulators or third parties.

Other Considerations

  • Public liability insurance – If you go to clients or they come to you, they could sue you if they have an accident or their property is damaged. This cover provides for legal costs and any compensation you may need to pay out.
  • Employment liability insurance – If you employ staff, this is a legal requirement. It protects you against claims made by your employees for injuries and illnesses they suffer at work.
  • Cyber liability insurance – If you use email, hold customer data, take online payments, or have a website, you could be at risk.
