Management Liability insurance

Best-in class protection

Protecting key employees against personal liability

Management Liability cover is an essential component of any commercial insurance programme. It is designed to protect directors, officers and other key employees against the costs of personal liability for compensatory damages and/or defence costs arising from actions and decisions they take on behalf of the company.

In a culture where more claims are being brought against not only firms but also individuals within a business, it is important that Management Liability insurance is in place

A Management Liability insurance policy is made up of three key covers as outlined below.
