This module was developed to help increase your knowledge of Directors and Officers (D&O) liability insurance for publicly-traded companies and financial organisations. D&O liability insurance is intended to protect directors and officers from personal liability they may face based on their actions while fulfilling the duties they owe to the shareholders of their organisations. While directors and officers of private and non-profit companies are also at risk for D&O claims, the greatest financial risk is to the directors and officers of publicly-traded companies and financial organisations as well as to the insurers providing their D&O liability insurance. This module expands on Asia Module 2: Introduction to Directors and Officers Liability Insurance by focusing on the liability of public companies and financial organisations and the types of D&O coverage available for these exposures.

This module is especially important for:

  • Agents/Brokers
    Increasing your understanding of D&O liability insurance for public companies and financial organisations will help you identify and recommend more comprehensive and appropriate coverage for your clients. Your understanding of the unique characteristics of D&O liability insurance for public companies will enable you to more effectively guide your clients in evaluating and purchasing D&O coverage. This module will help you explain common policy features and coverage, identify potential coverage gaps, and suggest additional types of coverage to protect individual directors and officers. If your clients are banks or financial service organisations, then this module will help you understand the unique exposures they face and the special types of coverage they may require.
  • Underwriters
    This module will help you understand the complex factors involved in underwriting D&O Policies. You will learn the importance of the application process and the factors that D&O underwriters use in selecting suitable applicants. You will also gain insight into how D&O Policies are written. Understanding the special features of D&O liability insurance for public and financial organisations will help you assure that the policies written are appropriate for your clients.
  • Claims Professionals
    This module will help you understand the complexity of D&O Policies, claims, and litigation. While D&O Policies and provisions have some common elements, they are often unique to the individual insured. This module will provide you with greater insight into D&O Policies and the complications that can arise from D&O claims, litigation, and settlements.

The D&O liability insurance industry is a constantly changing and challenging market. This module in the PLUS Curriculum will help you to understand how these challenges can become promising opportunities for you and for your company.
