Essentials of Directors & Officers Liability

Tuesday 3 Sept 2019
12:15pm - 1:00pm
Multiple Venues

In 2018, over 1000 Directors and Officers (D&O) & Statutory Liability claim notifications were lodged with insurers in NZ. With legal costs escalating, claims costs in the tens of millions of dollars and cases often lasting for years, the risks facing directors are very real.

In this session Catherine Tait, Specialty Strategy Leader for Marsh New Zealand will discuss;

  • where claims come from,
  • how to best position yourself in a changing insurance environment,
  • the mechanics of a D&O policy (advantages and pitfalls),
  • and insights into what insurers perceive as important risk factors for governance.
