Protecting your assets and liabilities
Directors’ liability insurance and financial risks
Executive Directors, and more generally corporate officers, are exposed to personal liability risks that are separate from those of the company they represent. Unlike shareholders, whose financial risk is limited to their contribution, the consequences of directors’ liability can result in full compensation of the loss suffered by the injured third party. It is therefore essential to cover the consequences of potential management errors or director failures with regard to the legal, regulatory or statutory obligations.
SIACI SAINT HONORE’s Assurance & Capital Partners department is specialized in liability insurance for directors and officers and corporate financial risks, particularly during public offerings or the opening up of capital to financial investors.
