  • Side-A Select? fills in coverage gaps of primary and excess entity-based directors and officers (D&O) liability coverage programs to protect directors and officers of public or private companies, non-profit organizations or financial institutions against risks faced in executing their corporate responsibilities; coverage is available on a primary basis or complementing AIG’s presence on primary and excess entity-based programs
  • Value-added coverage enhancements beyond typical Side-A D&O policies include, but are not limited to:
    • Extended protection through a per-claim limit structure and optional coverage for additional dedicated limits for specified individuals
    • Expanded drop-down coverage to apply whenever corporate indemnification and underlying insurance fails or is refused “for any reason”
    • Option for more coverage, such as broader fines and penalties coverage, explicit coverage for plaintiff attorney’s fees, enhanced pre-claim inquiry coverage, and the availability of separate defense counsel
  • Side-A Match Edge (SAME)? structure is available on AIG’s Primary D&O policies with any AIG Side-A capacity (lead or excess) from any geography to:
    • Broaden the available Side-A cover within a primary D&O ABC policy, and
    • Match the terms of a Side-A Difference in Conditions policy form with broader coverage extending up follow-form ABC tower
  • Bermuda-based placements for all Financial Lines products are available on an excess coverage basis

  • Broad appetite for Side-A D&O business with the exception of financially distressed companies and cryptocurrency
  • Preferred revenue size: from $25M annual revenue and up
  • Side-A capacity can be deployed on primary basis, but more often Side-A capacity sits excess of ABC limits
  • Long-term partnership with clients is AIG’s goal
