Management liability insurance protects directors and officers and the company itself from the many exposures relating to the management of a company. Anyone who owns or is involved in the management of a company carries specific responsibilities which may leave them personally liable for any alleged or actual wrong doing.
Managing business risks is critical to the overall performance of a business. Most companies insure the tangible exposures of property damage and bodily injury but neglect to insure against economic loss. Any business can experience ‘unwelcome surprises’ that could potentially threaten their financial position leaving their managers and owners exposed to personal liability and the business under threat.
Increased regulation has also heightened the operating risk for businesses of all sizes. Management Liability insurance is one way businesses can help protect themselves against ‘unwelcome surprises’.
Given the potential severity of these types of claims, it's worth considering Management Liability insurance for your clients.
