Trustees’ liability insurance

Trustees liability insurance provides cover against allegations that a trustee, trust secretary or other officer has committed a wrongful act in carrying out their duties.

Being a trustee comes with a lot of duties and responsibilities.

Whether you are the custodian of a large trust, managing a family company, overseeing an owned property, sitting on the board of a public or private foundation, there are bound to be disagreements that could be the cause of potential liabilities for you. 

Who needs trustees’ liability insurance?

Any person who serves as a trustee or is a secretary or other officer of a trust needs liability cover.

Trusts come in many shapes and sizes, presenting their trustees and service providers with a variety of duties.

One thing trusts all have in common, is that trustees can be held legally accountable for any decisions that they make and for any services provided.

  • Individual trustees and corporate trustees (if declared)

  • Fidelity cover to protect trust assets against theft or fraud by a trustee
