Responding to market developments and feedback from ACE’s broker panel, the Elite V policy breaks with traditional market practice by providing three distinctive coverage enhancements.

- a preservation of the Side A limit when unrelated claims give rise to erosion under Side B or Side C
- protection for the company in the event of a securities claim
- under a new cyber privacy and confidentiality extension,
the product also protects directors against losses arising from unauthorised disclosure of data or breach of privacy

The product enhancements follow recent research by ACE which highlights that D&O liability and cyber risk are two of the top four emerging risks for UK businesses. In the study, over 40% of those responsible for risk management believe these risks could have a significant financial impact on their company over the next two years.

Simon Million, UK & Ireland D&O Manager at ACE, said.

“We are highly attuned to the needs of our clients and this enhanced wording responds to their concerns that Side A limits may not be available following claims on another part of the policy. It also addresses growing concerns in relation to the rising tide of cyber threats, which are becoming more sophisticated, more challenging and increase the exposures of directors and officers because of their capacity to affect the financial performance of the organisation.”
