Fiduciary Liability

Securities class-action settlements totaled approximately $4.8 billion in 2013

Many people spend their entire careers planning for retirement, dreaming of summers touring the country and winters on a beach. However, retirements saving plans are subject to the whims of the stock market. When the market shifts and they lose a portion of their future income, they look to their plan administrators for answers and, in some cases, compensation. As a result, professionals who administer benefit plans can be faced with costly litigation. Obtaining Fiduciary Liability Coverage is an important first step in ensuring that the professionals who direct benefit plans are protected from the financial fallout of litigation.
