For any company that has a global footprint, irrespective of its size, the same risk applies. The use of prohibited non-admitted insurers and payment of insurance premium tax can bring about a breach of regulations in various territories across the globe.
This is a risk that some companies take knowingly and others not so. However, when the insurance placement in question is Directors & Officers Liability, various risks should be considered in detail before proceeding with a non-compliant programme.
