BROAD FORM PLUS+
Directors and Officers Liability
The Broad Form PLUS+® Directors and Officers Liability Policy from Travelers offers comprehensive personal asset protection for directors and officers when primary coverage and/or indemnification cannot or will not respond. This includes coverage in situations where the corporation is required to indemnify, but cannot due to corporate insolvency or merger-related conflicts. Specially designed to meet the current needs of directors and officers, Broad Form PLUS+® provides coverage for non-indemnified claims ("A-side") against the directors and officers and includes Difference in Conditions (DIC) drop down features not found in most other policies. The policy is a reimbursement form that drops down to fill key coverage gaps resulting from exclusions commonly found in primary D&O policies. The Broad Form PLUS+® has a flexible policy format that enables the election of coverage for all of the directors and officers of a corporation or for an individual director or officer for their service with one or more companies (personal D&O umbrella policy).
The coverage provided by this policy is broader than the coverage provided by traditional follow form excess A-side policies, since it can respond as either an A-Side excess policy or as a primary policy that drops down to fill gaps that result from exclusions in the primary D&O policy. Since the policy can to drop down to primary, it is more expensive than traditional follow form excess A-side policies, but can be worth the additional premium for the protection it provides to the directors and officers of a corporation.
The complete list of enhanced coverage features can be found n the sales sheet located in Coverage Highlights section to the right to see why Travelers Broad Form PLUS+® policy is the choice for directors and officers liability coverage.
