There is more expectation, more complexity and more scrutiny and exposure for Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) in today’s climate than ever before. Rising Edge are introducing a new product, NED Protect, which has been created to address the unique gaps and challenges that can arise for NEDs when there is a claim. It is there to enhance a current D&O policy, rather than replace it.

NED Protect has similarities to how a Side A policy behaves, however, it is specifically targeted to Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) and has a lot of extra bells and whistles than your standard Side A.

Product highlights

  • Purchased by the company.
  • One master policy and individual ringfenced policies for each individual NED. This means they have comfort to know they are always fully protected, should they need it.
  • Coverage can be triggered by the company’s D&O insurer’s refusal to pay, for whatever reason.
  • Covers NED for role at the purchasing company and all other NED positions, including new appointments during the policy period.
  • Covers non-indemnifiable loss where the company’s D&O insurers do not agree to pay within 45 days.
  • 6 years' extended reporting period for claims following departure for any reason from Company.
