Management Liability Insurance

Protect yourself and your business from claims of mismanagement

Management liability insurance provides protection against the financial exposures that come with managing a company. Helping you defend, settle or pay compensation claims.

What do you need to know?

  • Who should consider it?

    Management liability insurance is important for all businesses, big and small to help protect against unpredictable and potentially large liability claims.

  • What can it cover?

    Management liability insurance can cover the business against claims arising from mistakes or deliberate actions – including fraud – from the company or its directors, officers or employees – both past and present.

    It can cover the cost of investigating, defending and settling claims by a third party, as well as paying compensation the business is liable for.

  • What isn't covered

    There are exclusions. There is also often a deductible or excess and limits on cover, so check with your Steadfast insurance broker.
