Video transcript: Grant Merrill, Chief Underwriting Officer, Commercial Institutions, AIG Financial Lines

One of the things that surprised me about the Captains of Industry Survey is the amount of attention directors and officers paid towards their directors and officers purchase. They felt they knew a lot about it, it wasn’t something that was regularly on the board docket. And this is surprising since what we’re actually protecting is their personal assets. Over the past three or four years we’ve seen a 64% increase in claims and it’s a trend that’s only going to continue. Regulators, they’re only becoming more vigilant and shareholders, I think they’re fed up with where business is today and we’re seeing a lot more shareholder activism. I think D&O insurance needs to be a regular topic on board’s agendas.  

It’s something that they need to continue to talk about, engage external parties, their brokers, their outside counsel, their insurers. They need to find out where are the risks today and more importantly where are the risks tomorrow? I think brokers need to be sure that the policy that it protects and it does what it’s supposed to do. One of the things that we’ve gone is we’ve looked to map an investigation from beginning to end and so it’s really that the mechanics of the policy so that they’re there and that it reacts to what actually happens when there is a claim.

AIG – Group Personal Accident/Travel: What does the terrorist activity in Algeria mean for businesses?

Guy Wilson - Head of Group Insurances, AIG Property Casualty Accident & Health UK

Well certainly the recent Algerian situation highlighted a need for the type of cover we provide.

In that for a range of companies we helped people get back, who were based on the Statoil compound. We actually had somebody positioned at Gatwick Airport for three days permanently and he liaised with Kenyon’s who were the company that BP were working with out in Algeria and some of the other people involved to make sure that some people got back and were looked after when they got back into the UK.

Well I think the implications for businesses now operating in Algeria or any of the areas in the world where certainly, oil companies are based, and that could be Africa that could be the Black Sea and the Baltic states, is that terrorists have seen an opportunity to make a mark by doing exactly what they did in Algeria, and it probably won’t be the last time it happens.  

I don’t think businesses will necessarily find it hard to get cover, but I do think that they will have to rethink the type of cover that they buy.  Traditionally companies have always looked into buying something which caters for the medical expenses side of cover when you travel abroad, but now of course, with what happened in Algeria, they need to look far more closely at the security aspects.  In fact we have a fact sheet that is available to download from the website that highlights some the issues they need to think about.
