BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

AIG adds Brexit coverage to D&O policy

AIG adds Brexit coverage to D&O policy

American International Group Inc.'s U.K. unit has added coverage to its directors and officers liability policy for the cost of legal challenges associated with the U.K.'s vote to leave the European Union.

AIG said Thursday the free add-on provided by AIG U.K. will cover legal challenges in the event of permanent residency applications being rejected prior to Britain's exit from the European Union, and subsequent challenges to repatriation orders post-Brexit.

One of the key provisions of E.U. membership is freedom of movement, which allows citizens in E.U. countries to live and work throughout the European Union.

AIG said executives who are citizens of E.U. countries who are covered by the insurer's D&O policies and whose applications for permanent residency in the United Kingdom are rejected before termination of the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union, will have their legal costs met to challenge the decision.

Also covered will be legal costs for U.K. nationals if their application for permanent residency in an E.U. member state is rejected, the insurer said.

The coverage will also pay legal costs for executives living in the United Kingdom and the E.U. to fight a repatriation order as a result of termination of the United Kingdom's membership in the E.U.

If the legal challenge to the repatriation order is unsuccessful, the addition will also cover “reasonable” repatriation relocation costs, including moving expenses, travel fees and unpaid school fees for the executives and their direct family members, the insurer said.

In addition to having no additional cost, there will be no deductible, AIG said.
