2021 Management and Professional Liability Market Outlook

VIEW NOW

Although most lines of coverage for Management and Professional Liability exposures were already firming pre-COVID-19, this specialized segment of the casualty insurance market hasn’t experienced the level of turmoil it is currently seeing since the early 2000s. Premiums are spiking, coverage limits are contracting, and client retentions are growing.

The coronavirus pandemic has unleashed a deluge of new challenges for management and professional liability underwriters, including COVID-19-related insolvencies, layoff-related discrimination and wrongful termination claims, and cyber breaches.

Insurance carriers writing nearly every line of business in this specialized market segment are raising premiums and rates, reducing capacity and more closely scrutinizing accounts.

Regulation, government compliance, and litigation are among the top risks today’s executives and companies face. Take, for example, regulatory changes and heightened scrutiny from federal and state agencies that have resulted in a rise in discrimination and wage loss class-action suits. Look at recent data breaches and resulting lawsuits that affected major retailers, healthcare providers, financial institutions, and other high-profile companies along with many small and midsized firms that aren’t making headlines. In addition, increased Errors & Omissions (E&O) exposures across a broad spectrum of professionals have landed insureds in court or at minimum in their attorney’s offices – all illustrating the complex enterprise-wide risk events that threaten a company’s reputation, brand, and assets.

Boards of directors and executive management teams cannot afford to manage risks on a reactive basis; they need sound risk management strategies in place coupled with insurance solutions that address and respond to today’s risks.
