Directors’ & Officers’ liability (D&O) insurance is a critical
component of almost every organization’s risk management
program. In today’s business climate, D&O insurance is no
longer a necessity for just large, publicly traded companies.
All organizations – regardless of their size, mission or structure – have some
form of D&O exposure. Yet, despite the fact that D&O insurance has been
around for decades, it remains one of the most complex and misunderstood
At JLT Canada, we feel it’s essential to bring as much clarity as possible to the
subject of D&O insurance. Doing so allows our clients to make informed buying
decisions and structure well-rounded risk management programs. As such, we
have developed this guide to educate organizations on the risks facing their
directors and officers and how D&O insurance can help.
However, before learning about the mechanics of D&O policies, it’s important to
understand the basic duties of directors and officers. When organizations know
what’s expected of their leadership team, they are better prepared to mitigate the
risks that lead to costly D&O claims.
