Executive Armour (Side-A Directors and Officers Insurance)

The D&O liability environment is always changing. D&O protection must be adequate for today and anticipatory for tomorrow. Executive Armour delivers exceptionally broad coverage when and where directors and officers need it most-with coverage features such executives will not find anywhere else.

Executive Armour is a follow form excess Side-A Directors & Officers Liability Insurance with Difference In Conditions (“DIC”) coverage that is distinct from other Side-A DIC policies. The policy provides individual directors and officers with the coverage they need to protect themselves and their assets.
