Corporate governance reforms in the United States in recent years have added significantly to the responsibilities of executive and non-executive directors of public companies. Directors understandably look for robust insurance coverage to protect them in the execution of these responsibilities.
D&O risks now extend well beyond traditional claims for which D&O cover was originally designed.
Directors and officers are increasingly becoming involved in investigations and inquiries by regulatory authorities, which can prove extremely costly. Under the new Beazley policy forms, coverage for investigations and inquiries is provided as soon as the directors and officers are targeted by way of subpoenas and/or Wells Notices.
- Non rescindable coverage options for all insuring agreements
- Broad investigation & inquiry coverage for D&Os
- Broad definition of loss includes FCPA, UK Bribery Act, Section 308 of SOX and other fines and penalties where insurable
- Exclusions apply only to "that portion of" any claim
- Entity vs insured exclusion in lieu of insured vs insured exclusion
- Automatic Side A reinstatement of limit- round the clock basis for any separate claim
- International capabilities provided by our Beazley Bridge product
Beazley also offers Entity+ regulatory investigations and inquiries and Side A D&O coverage for U.S. based multinational corporations through our product Beazley Bridge. Click here to learn more about Beazley Bridge.
