D&O Health Check

D&O cover often remains untested until a claim circumstance occurs, by which time it's too late to remedy any errors or omissions.

In an ever-changing legal landscape driven by more stringent regulatory scrutiny, increased self-reporting and a greater emphasis on disclosure; Directors, Officers and senior staff are increasingly at risk that in the event of a claim their insurance policy is revealed as deficient.

We have a team of D&O specialists who are experienced within the US, Asian, European and London Markets. Using our knowledge, expertise and the information we have collated we can now offer you a free no-obligation health check of your current D&O policy.

An advanced Health Check of your policy will address the core issues found within policy wording and the contract formation process in order to ensure that a potential claim is properly addressed by your D&O policy and that the coverage best suit your needs.

The benefits of a Free JLT D&O 'healthcheck' are many and include:

  • Identification of areas of concern and suggestions of possible enhancements that can be made
  • The option of a face to face discussion to systematically work through your policy
  • Checking that appropriate levels of insurance are in place, and that the programme structure , layering and choice of insurers adequately address your exposures

Discussion with D&O underwriters now could resolve the issues before there is a crisis, and provide certainty rather than a tricky negotiation with the insurer's claims department under stressed circumstances. In the current soft market, insurers have an incentive to differentiate themselves by adapting their coverage to changing circumstances. A D&O 'healthcheck' will help facilitate this process by highlighting the most important considerations in your policy.
