18.05.2021 – Understanding D&O Insurance, co-hosted with McGill & Partners
May 18 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Online presentation & interactive Q&A dedicated to understanding liabilities associated to your NED role and Directors & Officers insurance, co-hosted with experts from McGill & Partners.
D&O insurance is complex insurance that provides vital protection from personal liability for non-executive directors and executive board members. However, the market for D&O insurance is incredibly challenged and a recent article in the FT referenced the “soaring” and “spiralling” costs for liability insurance for UK company directors. Against that backdrop, NEDonBoard, in conjunction with specialist insurance broker McGill and Partners, launched a survey to understand how much directors know about their D&O insurance. More than 100 directors have participated in the survey so far and, as expected, the results reveal that many directors lack a comprehensive understanding of how their D&O insurance works.
On May 18, please join NEDonBoard as well as Francis Kean and Noona Barlow of McGill & Partners for a webinar to discuss both the state of the D&O market and the results of the survey. If you completed the survey and struggled with some of the answers, or if you have a general interest in your D&O protection, this webinar will be a great opportunity for you to get a better understanding of your D&O coverage and how to make it work better for you.
