Shining a light on the misunderstood
D&O is an interesting and challenging insurance coverage, responsible for protecting management executives all around the world. It provides support in times of difficulty and allows an organisation’s leaders to sleep easy, knowing that they will be safe when times get tough.
However, it’s also incredibly complex. The policies themselves are typically large and cumbersome, full of intertwining clauses and foreign terminology. I remember taking my first look at one. Intimidating to say the least.
But how can you learn about this mysterious coverage? When I started out, I looked around for a book to read or a course to take. I didn’t have hundreds of dollars for an overpriced seminar. Do you think I could find something? Not a chance.
A modern approach to learning
So I learnt through my own experience while working with some of the best brokers and underwriters in the market. As I arranged coverage for my clients, I recorded everything I discovered. Before too long I had all the essential information needed to advise on and arrange, a comprehensive D&O insurance policy.
I began to think that if I had had come up against this learning curve, then others must as well. I put in countless hours of research to ensure that my little black book had everything an upcoming professional would need to get started with D&O insurance. Inadvertently, I’d created a convenient and cost effective solution to learn the ropes.
