D&O Liability Insurance

Strategies for Maximising Profitability in a Soft Market & Minimising Risk

Tuesday, March 19 to Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Crowne Plaza - the City Hotel, London

Directors and Officers are operating in one of the most hostile environments ever and face a multitude of threats from various sources including, securities class actions, regulatory investigations, accusations of breaches of fiduciary duty or violations of antitrust legislation, allegations of corruption and employment related claims. 

There has been a noticeable shift since the financial crisis towards enhanced accountability of directors and officers and regulators are increasingly pursuing individuals in addition to companies.  Regulators have become more powerful and they are increasingly willing to share their knowledge and collaborate in cross-border investigations.  The wide swings in share prices that have been caused by the crisis have caused shareholders to seek redress through the courts.

It is crucial for D&O insurers to anticipate changes in the market and take steps to mitigate the potential losses.  Insurers must also capitalise on growth areas in the market and ensure they remain competitive.  Given the amount of regulatory and shareholder scrutiny, it is more important than ever that D&Os and their brokers and insurers stay abreast of the latest developments on a global level, to ensure they are implementing the most effective strategies and policies to minimise their risk exposure. 

The 2013 forum will focus on the latest developments around the world and will examine the impact on D&Os.  You will walk away with fresh insights, tactics and tools to enable you to update and tailor your policies to the latest challenges and developments to ensure that you remain competitive in today’s constantly changing landscape.
The expert speakers will provide guidance on:

  • What risk managers and directors want from their insurers, the key factors determining their purchasing decisions in the current climate and insights on how insurers and brokers can improve their service

  • The impact of the increase in regulatory oversight and regulatory investigations around the globe on the liability of D&Os: find out how to adapt your insurance policies to stay ahead of the curve
