Things to remember in Business Package Insurance Policies

Watch out and discuss with your Broker some of the following issues:

  • Average clause” which may only pay a proportion of your claim if under-insured
  • Full Reinstatement/Replacement conditions – sometimes called “New for Old” rather than Market value
  • Never under-estimate the value of Business Interruption cover. It can be the difference between survival for your business or oblivion when you cannot generate income from your lost assets
  • Burglary cover does not include cash or negotiable instruments. For this you need the Money section
  • Good Security  can keep rates down for the Burglary and Money sections

D&O premium pool ‘must treble’ to return to profitability

A new report – called "Show Me The Money!" by insurer XL Catlin and law firm Wotton + Kearney – is the second in a series of three white papers on securities class actions and their impact on the Directors & Officers Liability (D&O) market. The main conclusion is that Directors’ and officers’ (D&O) insurance premiums are under-priced significantly and need to rise strongly to restore profitability. The main risk areas are those exposed to securities class actions, 

It says Directors & Officer's Side A, Side B and Side C cover has been chronically underpriced since at least 2011, while the frequency of class actions is increasing as more plaintiff lawyers and litigation funders enter the space.

The analysis suggests last year’s overall premium pool of about $210 million would need to increase by at least three times to establish a profitable market, if it is assumed all other factors stay unchanged.

“Recent market developments would indicate most D&O insurers are now endeavouring to restore some semblance of profitability to their portfolios after years of market losses,” the report says.
