According to the most recent Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Survey by Tillinghast Towers Perrin, WGA’s overall D&O practice was ranked Second Largest in the United States. This prestigious survey represents all major industry groups, the majority publicly traded corporations.

WGA is consistently ranked as a top broker by this survey, due to the ExecutiveRisk team's expertise and commitment to excellence.
WGA is also a proven leader in IPOs, having served as the D&O broker for 190 companies during their Initial Public Offering. Today, WGA manages the D&O programs for over 170 publicly traded companies.
The WGA ExecutiveRisk team has an unsurpassed understanding of the complex issues involving D&O through our experience working with companies in our key industries. This understanding and experience allows us to use a systematic, well-conceived approach to placing D&O coverage that affords the best value available from the marketplace.
Educate our clients about D&O risks, and the underwriters about the strengths of your company.
WGA negotiates the most comprehensive coverage at the most competitive price with only the best insurers.
In addition to serving as your advocate in the insurance marketplace when negotiating coverage, it is imperative for WGA to advocate on your behalf when you have a claim.
Benchmarking should be a key component of the due diligence process, allowing you to present to your Board of Directors the rationale for the D&O program you are proposing – including program design, loss forecasting, limits, insurers, terms/conditions, and cost.
