D&O insurance is a critical protection mechanism for any strong corporate governance regime ensuring the sustainability of boards and the organisations they represent.

Directors and officers operate in an environment of increased scrutiny from third parties. They need to familiarise themselves with their statutory duties and the terms and conditions of their D&O policies.

Carien Adhar and Lisa de Bruin from Marsh Dunedin will discuss the basics of D&O liability and insurance policies, directors’ duties and provide comment on general pitfalls.
