Traditionally Directors & Officers Liability products have been considered essential for larger corporate companies. However in recent years, due to increases in regulation (Work Health Safety legislation etc) and a more litigious society generally, the need for SME’s to have a version of the traditional Directors & Officers Liability product, Management Liability insurance, has become increasingly important. In many ways, it can often be more important for an SME to have the cover, as without management liability insurance in place, smaller businesses often don’t have deep enough pockets to stay viable following a hefty fine and/or expensive legal fees.
Managing business risks is critical to the overall performance of a business. Most businesses 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.
CGU’s Business Protection Management Liability policy provides cover to protect individuals (directors and officers) and the business from the many exposures relating to the management of a business. Anyone who owns or is involved in the management of a business carries specific responsibilities which may leave them personally liable for any alleged or actual wrong doing.
