Fund Directors and Officers Insurance FAQs

What cover does Fund D&O Insurance provide?

The Lockton D&O Liability Insurance for Funds policy provides financial protection to:

  • Past, present or future directors or officers and other individuals with managerial or advisory functions
  • In the event of their death, incapacity, insolvency or bankruptcy, the estate or legal representatives of any insured person
  • Outside board directors
  • Employees

This policy protects individuals from claims made against them in respect of acts committed (or alleged to have been committed) in their capacity as such and as a result of an error, omission or breach of duty.

Key instances of cover include:

  • Where the fund suffers a loss and has no liability or refuses or is unable to indemnify 
  • Where the fund suffers a loss and agrees to indemnify

Fund D&O cover can be included within an Investment Management Insurance product if broader professional indemnity insurance and fund manager covers are also required.

Has the Lockton Investment Management Insurance wording been reviewed by any external parties?

Our Fund D&O wording is created by our dedicated asset management team with support and input from Simmons & Simmons, resulting in protection that is amongst the broadest and strongest available in the global insurance market.

Is coverage afforded for retired directors?

Yes. In the event the policy is not renewed or replaced with materially equivalent cover, an automatic additional reporting period of 72 months after expiry of the original policy term is available at no additional premium.
