What is directors and officers insurance?
Directors & Officers Insurance (D&O insurance) is a type of insurance that provides financial protection to company directors and officers. It is designed to cover the personal assets of these individuals in case they are personally held liable for alleged wrongful acts or mistakes they may have made while performing their duties.
As directors and officers make important decisions to effectively manage a business, there is a risk that these decisions could lead to legal claims. D&O insurance helps mitigate this risk by covering legal expenses, settlements, and judgments resulting from lawsuits brought against directors and officers. This insurance can also extend to reimburse the company itself if it has indemnified its directors and officers.
In simpler terms, D&O insurance offers financial support to protect the personal assets of company directors and officers if they are sued for alleged errors or misconduct related to their roles. It provides peace of mind and helps ensure they can fulfill their responsibilities without worrying about potential legal consequences.
