The last decade has seen significant changes affecting Directors and Officers (D&O) risk following the 2008 global financial crisis. Increased legislation and greater regulatory scrutiny in the United States and in other key centres for business, has prompted a sharp increase in litigation against companies and their Directors and Officers.
Significant regulatory reform, the growing willingness of courts and regulators to hold individuals accountable, an increasingly active and engaged shareholder pool and a heightened compensation culture, have all led to D&Os facing a constantly evolving set of exposures – including regulatory fines, criminal sanctions, civil liabilities and collective and shareholder claims.
Furthermore, we are seeing increased regulatory activism arising from risks such as climate change, cryptocurrency and other areas which threaten criminal exposure for multinational companies and personal liability for its D&Os.
It is therefore important to understand the value of local insurance policies in multinational insurance programmes and how building the right programme with both local and master policies offering robust cross-border insurance protection.
