Why choose us?

Our Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Insurance (D&O) offers financial protection to those directors and officers of a firm who are at risk of having claims for compensation made against them as individuals.

With the D&O cover we offer, you can be confident that you and any other insured directors, partners or officers in your firm are protected against the cost of defending or settling various claims.

This could include an employment claim from a member of staff, a claim arising from health and safety, negligence or a breach of duty or trust.

Our commercial insurance expects will guide you through the complexities of D&O insurance to ensure individuals in your firm have the cover they need.  

How Wesleyan's D&O insurance protects you

If directors and officers do not have insurance, they face the risk of not being able to defend themselves against claims such as:

  • Civil proceedings which can lead to expensive legal costs and compensation for damages
  • Criminal prosecution which can incur fines and possible imprisonment
  • Disqualification from holding the position of director
  • Compensation and fines payable as a result of a health and safety claim from an injured employee

Exclusions and limitations on your insurance

Limits, exclusion and exceptions do apply. Full details of the terms and conditions for the policy and cover will be contained in the Policy wording and Policy summary.
