    How much do you know about Executive Risk insurance policies? Understanding the coverage terms, conditions, and policy mechanics will assist you in avoiding unnecessary roadblocks and preclusions to coverage that may have otherwise been available.

    We recently took on these issues to get you answers. In the executive risk video below, you’ll learn about:

    1) Notification of Claims

    Reporting as soon as possible is one thing, but knowing what constitutes as an executive risk claim is equally important.

    2) Duty to Defend Policy

    3) Subsidiaries vs. Affliates

    4) Organizational Changes

    An organizational change should be promptly reported to your insurance broker and insurer to ascertain whether it triggers certain provisions within your executive risk policy.
