Who needs directors' and officers' liability insurance?

Place: Tallinn, Vene Teater (Russian Theatre, Vabaduse väljak 5)
Time: 1 Jun 2017 08:45 - 13:00
Working language: English

Join us on 1 June for a joint D&O liability insurance seminar held by Sorainen and insurance company Polaris!

Only about 5% of the EUR 3.2 billion raised by Estonian pension funds reaches the country’s businesses. Some of the reasons for this may lie in our corporate management culture.

Would the situation improve if management companies, shareholders and creditors knew that managers would be actually held liable and that compensation could be claimed through insurance in cases of negligence or breach? Would that encourage investors to be more active? How would managers themselves benefit from obtaining directors’ and officers’ (D&O) insurance? Would insurance help managers take calculated risks? Would D&O insurance make capital cheaper for businesses?

Speaking about market specifics in the field of D&O insurance will be our special guest Kevin M. LaCroix who has over 30 years’ experience in the field. In 2015, Kevin received the Industry Legend of the Year award, which recognizes the global management liability community’s gratitude to visionaries who – throughout their career - have shaped and influenced the executive risk sector. Also read Kevin’s blog about D&O insurance.

Participation is free for up to two representatives of any organisation or company that has used Sorainen services in the past two years. Other participants are asked to pay a nominal registration fee of EUR 39 + VAT.  Please inform us of your attendance by 25 May.
