DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS INSURANCE
Protect your leaders and your company from liability.
Why choose Magaya Insurance Services for your directors and officers insurance?

It also provides backing for an indemnification provision, which holds officers harmless for any losses due to their role in your company.
D&O policies can take many forms, and vary based on the organization and the risks it faces. Our insurance agents have deep experience in this specialized field and will counsel you on the best coverage for your needs.
Whether you need assistance with a claim or want to purchase a new policy, you can count on fast, attentive, concierge-level service.
