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”.

D&O prices up 7.7% in second quarter: Aon


Aon PLC clients are still facing directors and officers liability price increases but at a slower pace, according to a report released Monday.

Average price per million, when adjusted for certain items, increased 7.7% in the second quarter, according to the report.  This compares with the 30% increase the broker reported for the first quarter, and the 46.6% fourth-quarter increase.

The price per million in the second quarter for clients that renewed in both 2021 and 2020’s second quarters increased 9%.

A total of 93% of primary policies that renewed with the same limit and deductible had a price increase, and just 3% had a reduction, according to the report.

The overall price increase for primary policies renewing with the same limit and deductible was 14.2%.

A total of 92.5% of primary policies renewed with the same limit; 65.3% renewed with the same deductible; 61.2% renewed with the same limits and deductibles; and 92.5% renewed with the same insurer.

The report said the second-quarter increase represented the 14th consecutive quarter of year-over-year price increases, which followed 18 quarterly pricing decreases over the prior four years.

D&O liability insurance rates continued to rise at July 1 but in smaller increments than in recent renewals, and many experts predict rates may be flat by the middle of next year.
