Assessing D&O Risk for Publicly Traded Corporations

Gallagher D&O Modeling Evaluation (DOME) supplements benchmarking and the analysis of actual historical large D&O losses as a method for assessing D&O risk – one which our experience shows to be the most accurate. Our D&O limits model is based on Gallagher’s proprietary models and algorithms and relies wholly on client data to project potential liabilities. The data used by the model includes the client’s specific ownership structure, industry and a variety of unique trading data such as market capitalization and price volatility. The model estimates the amount of D&O insurance coverage required to cover most D&O claims. In this paper, we will explore recent results from the National Economic Research Associates’ (NERA) 2014 report on D&O liability and compare them to our model assumptions.
