More competition in the public D&O marketplace has resulted in reduced premiums for many companies, a welcome change from previous years. In addition, the trend of increasing self-insured retentions has slowed, and there are opportunities to lower retentions for the first time in several years.

Our 2023 Looking Ahead Guide and Webinar will help you anticipate and prepare for your next D&O insurance renewal. Get exclusive information from our experts to help optimize your D&O risk management strategy with insights ranging from insurance carrier expectations to hot topics in corporate governance—the fire sprinklers of D&O risk.

SUMMARY

After the doom and gloom that has surrounded D&O insurance rates over the past year, some relief may be on the way.

“It really does feel like the fever may be breaking,” said Priya Huskins, Senior Vice President Liability, who moderated a live webinar on September 29th to discuss Woodruff Sawyer’s recently released ninth-annual D&O Looking Ahead Guide for 2022.

Here are three key takeaways from the webinar:

  1. Roughly 54% of surveyed D&O underwriters predicted that insurance premiums would go up over the next year. This is good news compared to last year, when a full 100% of underwriters predicted rate increases. 

  2. About 62% of D&O insurance underwriters survey respondents said that self-insured retentions would go up next year, which compares favorably to the previous year’s 95%.

  3. The number of traditional securities class action suits, which reached historic highs over the past three years, is dropping. According to Woodruff Sawyer’s DataBox, there has been a 13% drop in filings in the first half of 2021 compared to the first half of 2020. 

Although there are bright spots in the D&O rate forecasts, many buyers will continue to face pricing challenges.
