Directors & Officers Liability Insurance

Residents Insurance Services Limited also offers Directors & Officers Liability Insurance, an additional policy used by many of our clients who want to indemnify against financial personal liability, for negligence, which their company are not insured against. To explain this simply, if a third party suffers financially as a result of the actions of the directors/and or officers of the company, they may bring a law suit against the directors/and or officers responsible (rather than the company) and this policy can provide an indemnity limit to protect against this risk.

 

  • This policy is for Residents Associations & Clubs with up to a £15,000,000 annual income
  • Unlike some other Directors & Officers Liability policies, we do not require an annual report and accounts
  • Provides insured persons (Directors & Officers) with protection against personal liability for wrongful acts for which the company has not provided indemnity
  • Limits of indemnity available from £100,000 to £1,000,000
  • Protection is also provided to the Insured Company where they are permitted or required to indemnify Directors & Officers for Wrongful acts

 

This policy summary does not contain the full terms and conditions of the insurance and cover, details of which will be found within the actual policy documents. We have set up a page under ‘Useful Infomation’ called A-Z Jargon Buster to help explain some words / phrases for you.
