Why is D&O insurance so important?
Shareholders, employees, customers, competitors and regulators increasingly hold executives personally legally liable for wrong business decisions. When courts rule that a corporate decision-maker has breached his or her duties, the executive faces potentially unlimited liability for losses caused. Even small and medium-sized companies that are not publically listed are seeing a surge in claims from internal and external stakeholders, for example, based on allegations discrimination.

D&O liability insurance protects executives and their companies by covering legal expenses and potential compensation in the event of personal liability lawsuits. In recent years, policies have paid out anywhere between US$ 1m and US$ 500m per claim – sometimes even more.

Munich Re has long-standing ties with specialised D&O insurers, who can assist you in finding the right cover for your individual needs. The app is available in English free of charge for smartphones and tablets with iOS and Android operating systems.
