How to Ensure Claims are Paid?

Ensure Retroactive Coverage

Claims pertaining to a period before the retroactive date are not covered. If there is a break in the renewal of D&O insurance then the retroactive date is reset to the start date of the new insurance. Ensure timely renewal and carry forward of retroactive coverage.

Declare known issues

Claims that come about from an issue that was known before the insurance was bought are rejected. This can further make the policy voide for non-disclosure. Report all known issues and outstanding claims in the proposal form.

Set high level of major shareholder exclusion

Litigation by major shareholders is excluded. The insurance carries a definition of major shareholders, generally linked to shareholding. The limit can vary between 15 and 30%. We can prevent rejection on this ground by increasing the major shareholder limits to cover most investors.
