Fiduciary Liability

Trustees and fiduciaries are far more accountable for their actions when managing employee benefit plans than ever before. In today’s environment, they are governed by statutes that regulate the administration of benefit plans, as well as the laws generally applicable to trustees. Consequently, non-compliance can lead to personal liability for breach of responsibilities – risking a loss to their personal assets as well as those of the corporations they represent.

Programme Features

  • Financial capacity of up to €25 million (US$25 million or £15 million) per fiduciary liability policy

Best For

  • Fiduciaries

  • Corporate trustee companies and their subsidiaries

Summary of Coverage

The onerous duties of benefit plan auditors and actuaries who act in the best interests of beneficiaries have increased the chances of legal action against trustees and sponsor companies.

The scale of potential claims has risen dramatically, stemming from allegations such as:

  • Breach of fiduciary responsibility imposed by local statutes
  • Improper advice or disclosure
  • Negligence in the administration of a plan
