Financial institution directors & officers
Protects directors and officers of public, private and not-for-profit financial institutions against loss arising out of their status or conduct as directors or officers. As businesses become more regulated through increased levels of corporate governance, EU Directives, Health and Safety, etc., the scope for suing individual directors and officers increases. The consequences of this can be severe with heavy fines and imprisonment.
Financial institution professional indemnity
This protects businesses and professionals from the financial consequences of their legal liabilities to third parties arising from breach of their professional duty. Certain professional bodies require their members to buy this type of protection, such as stockbrokers or securities dealers. Most financial institutions purchase this type of cover in order to protect them from litigation from clients or other third parties alleging breaches of professional duties.

Directors & officers liability
Directors & officers liability insurance (often called D&O) is liability insurance payable to the directors and officers of a company, or to the organisation(s) itself, as indemnifications for certain damages (losses) or advancement of defense costs in the event any such insured suffers such a loss as a result of a legal action (whether criminal, civil, or administrative) brought for alleged wrongful acts in their capacity as directors and officers (as to the individual directors/officers) or against the organization(s) (either for securities claims or – if private – other actions against the organisations themselves).
With greater corporate governance and regulatory surveillance in place today, company directors and officers are under increased pressure to carry out their duties and obligations meticulously. Failure to do so may lead to personal liability for the individual director or for the entire board of directors, regardless of whether they are acting in a part-time, honorary or non-executive capacity. Directors & officers liability insurance (D&O) is designed to protect the assets of company directors and other individuals of a corporation against such claims.
Insured firms can be not-for-profit, privately held, or publicly traded. Start-ups will be considered. All industry sectors, both commercial and financial, are underwritten.
