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. When the insurance placement in question is Directors & Officers Liability, various risks should be considered in detail before proceeding with a non-compliant programme.

My report highlights the various steps that need to be considered and understood when implementing a global programme.
