Excess Deposit Bond

AmTrust offers a single-policy solution to protect the depositors of financial institutions in excess of FDIC/NCUA limits. With the AmTrust Excess Deposit Bond (EDB), financial institutions can attract and retain larger deposits while providing peace of mind to their key accounts and customers.

Directors and Officers Liability

Directors and officers (D&O) liability protects a financial institution’s executive board if they are named in a lawsuit. This insurance covers costs and damages that arise from wrongful allegations and lawsuits brought against members of the board of directors or an officer of the organization.

Employment Practices Liability Insurance

Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI) coverage protects financial institutions in the event of employment-related claims, including alleged discrimination, wrongful termination or demotion, sexual harassment and retaliation. An EPLI policy applies to all employees of an insured business, including temporary, part-time, full-time, seasonal, leased and volunteer workers.

Workers’ Compensation

Workers' Compensation Insurance protects financial institutions by providing benefits to employees injured on the job. These benefits can address medical care and related medical costs, retraining and lost wages until the employee can return to work or compensation for permanent disability.

Network Security and Privacy Liability

Any business using computers to complete day-to-day tasks should consider cyber insurance a necessary coverage. Network Security and Privacy Liability insurance provides coverage for certain losses incurred due to data breaches. Businesses are increasingly facing cyber risks that can threaten their operations and even their existence.
