Why Is Management Liability Insurance important?

The likelihood of a claim that could be covered by management liability policy has tripled in the last five years, with 50% of notifications resulting in a claim. The size of the business isn’t necessarily a deciding factor in whether a claim is likely to be made, rather in the business interactions with internal and external stakeholders.

When thinking about the potential exposures of a business, we tend to only think about the risks associated with the products or services that businesses provide. However, due to highly regulated and controversial business environments, it’s extremely important to consider liabilities that may arise from managing a business.

At Peter Cameron Insurance Broker, we can help protect you and your business against such exposures through management liability insurance. We’ll ensure you’re aware of the potential risks that may stand in your way and how you can protect yourself and your business against legal liabilities.
