Why Claims Get Rejected?

Prior period exclusion

Claims pertaining to a period before the retroactive date are not covered. If there is a break in the renewal of the insurance then the retroactive date is reset to the start date of the new insurance. We prevent this by ensuring timely renewal.

Known issues

Claims that come about from an issue that was known before the insurance was bought are rejected. The insurer will cross examine the case closely to see when the company became aware of the matter. This can be addressed by clearly describing any known issues when you buy your first D&O cover.

Major shareholder exclusion

Litigation by major shareholders is excluded. The insurance carries a definition of major shareholders, generally linked to shareholding. The limit can vary between 15 and 30%. We can prevent rejection on this ground by increasing the major shareholder limits to cover most investors.
