Directors and Officers Insurance, or D&O Insurance as it is often referred, provides personal liability protection for the Directors and any Officers of a Limited Company. Typically, personal claims can occur against individual Directors, or all board members, where they have acted (or are accused of acting) without property authority, or have breached part of the Companies Act.
As a Director within Limited Company, you are in the decision-making seat alongside other Directors and management. By the nature of the role not all these decisions might be as seamless as you'd hoped, for any cases where the results of these decisions have led to claims or allegations, Directors and Officers Insurance can protect Directors as individuals against such claims.
Without Director & officer insurance these individuals may be exposed to personal financial risk, as even before a claim research court it may have costly investigations and defences set up. To avoid Directors or Officers personal finances put a risk, the company can have D&O insurance in place to protect and keep any finances secure.
D&O cover can be purchased in isolation or as part of a comprehensive management liability policy which will include additional protect for Employment Practices Liability and entity cover for the business itself.

If you are a company director or an officer such as a company secretary, you have a personal responsibility and liability for your actions. Without adequate Directors and Officers Insurance, you could find yourself on the wrong end of costly litigation and / or compensation claims or fines from shareholders, third parties or regulators such as the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Whilst accusations or claims can later prove to be unfounded, without adequate insurance protection you would be left to manage the process and any associated legal bills which can cause considerable financial and emotional distress.
As one of the highest positions of power in a company, a director is often celebrated when the company is successful but also has to face scrutiny when things don't go as planned.
As such, you as a director or officer of a company have specific duties, responsibilities and powers associated with the position. If you are found to have acted outside of the job description or have appeared to be negligent, you may be faced with a civil, criminal or regulatory penalty.
These responsibilities are vastly different to those usually which are undertaken by other members in the company and as such not usually covered by standard business insurance. What's more due to the high-risk decisions dictated by Directors as individuals, as opposed to the decisions made lower down in the company where usually multiple sign-off is required, Director and Officer Insurance unlike business insurance will protect you as an individual.

These are all cases which are not usually covered by Business Insurance.
