SNCF Directors & Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance
Co-operatives with good practices in governance and armed with a D&O liability insurance plan, will stand a better chance to attract and retain good leaders and staff. For the benefit of its affiliates, SNCF has collaborated with Howden Insurance Broker to develop a SNCF Directors & Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance program.

What are covered under the Policy
Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance provides financial protection for the management committee members of the co-operative in the event they are sued personally in connection with the performance of their duties in the managing of the co-operative.
Any allegation made by a third party, no matter how frivolous, needs to be vigorously defended by the committee members or otherwise there is a risk of judgement being entered in default of a defence.
The policy covers the legal costs incurred to attend investigations and to defend cases of breach of fiduciary duty, defamation, employment related matters and other error allegedly committed in their capacity as the management of the co-operative. Compensation, including court-awarded damages and private settlement, are also covered.
Under the program, the annual premium rates are based on total gross asset size and selected policy limit. Premium rates start from S$1,900 for non-credit co-operatives, and from S$3,400 for credit co-operatives. The premium rates table may be subject to change annually.
The SNCF D&O Liability Insurance program is open to all affiliates of SNCF.
