Event Synopsis:

On October 10, 2013, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) issued Financial Institution Letter 47-2013 to warn insured depository institutions of two areas of concern for director and officer insurance policies namely: (1) FDIC’s noted increase in exclusionary terms or provisions contained in institutions’ D&O insurance policies “that may adversely affect the recruitment and retention of well-qualified individuals and (2) FDIC insurance coverage for civil money penalties (“CMPs”). Companies must evaluate their insurance policies to ensure that they do leave their directors and highest executives unduly exposed to personal liability for litigation costs, damages, and penalties.
