Why do I need Directors’ and Officers’ insurance?

Directors’ and Officers’ (D&O) insurance is a type of liability insurance that provides financial protection in the event that directors and management are sued for wrongful acts committed in the course of their duties.

D&O protects the personal assets of directors, officers, plus their spouses and estates of both public and private companies.
