Trustees, Directors and Officers (TDO) Insurance

Members of your board or management committee carry ultimate responsibility for the organisation. They can be sued in their individual capacity as Trustees, Directors or Committee members for any wrongful act – for example a breach of duty or trust. Many trustees will insist on the security of a Trustees, Directors & Officers insurance policy. The policy will protect the members of your board or management committee – whether they’re called trustees, committee members or directors.

The policy covers: the cost of any claim made against an individual for any wrongful act committed in the role of trustee, officer or director. The definition of a wrongful act is actual or alleged breach of duty, breach of trust, misstatement, misrepresentation, omission or breach of warranty of authority, libel or slander. The policy will cover the costs of defending any accusation of a wrongful act.

The policy also has a number of key additional extensions including: representation at investigations and examinations, heirs, estates and legal representatives extension and joint property liability clause.
