What is directors and officers insurance?

Posted on by editor

All companies need business insurance, but some businesses require an extra kind of liability insurance called directors and officers, or D&O, insurance. This coverage protects the personal assets of people serving as corporate directors and officers, as well as their spouses, in the event of being sued by employees, vendors, competitors, investors or customers for actual or alleged wrongdoing when managing an organization.

What does D&O insurance cover?

Director and officer insurance will usually cover legal fees, settlements or other costs and expenses. It’s the financial insurance for the standard indemnification clause that is part of many employment contracts. It holds officers – like those in the C-suite – harmless in their role as a company official.

Why would a company need D&O insurance?42443835 - conference room interior

Companies and their leadership teams can be sued for a number or reasons related to their corporate roles and responsibilities, including:

  • Breach of financial responsibilities that resulted in losses or bankruptcy
  • Falsification of company assets
  • Misuse or waste of company funds
  • Fraud
  • Non-compliance with applicable workplace laws
  • Intellectual property theft

What kinds of businesses need D&O insurance?

All companies – public, private and non-profit – could benefit from the assurance of D&O coverage. Companies of all sizes and industries can face litigation risks. Any company, including a nonprofit, that has a board of directors or advisory committee, should consider D&O insurance. Directors and officers from any kind of business posting any kind of profits can be sued over company management affairs, putting their personal assets at risk.

What are the benefits of D&O insurance policies?

  • Businesses with D&O insurance have protections for their profits and assets against being lost in a lawsuit.
  • D&O insurance could help companies look more appealing to investors, if they know they are protected.
  • Organizations will be better able to recruit and retain quality directors who won’t feel that their personal assets are at risk.
