- Property Insurance
Prices of premiums are continuously increasing regardless of the quality provided in a construction. Coverage terms were tightened to provide greater situations on communicable disease exclusions.
- Excess Liability Insurance
Businesses that purchased excess liability insurance to protect their balance sheets were deemed difficult to acquire. Insurers are now maximizing their policies at $10 million and require the occurrence coverage from $1 million to $2 million.
- Directors and Officers Coverage (D&O)
Both premium and deductible increases are present businesses purchased for personal protection to their board and management teams. Regardless of the company's size, they can expect a $1 million deductible before the coverage settles.
Even before the pandemic, the D&O market was already difficult. Considering the distress of many businesses caused by the economic slope, it was expected that there would be an increase in shareholder claims.

Claims for this type of insurance have increased. Employment lawsuits claiming discrimination or unequal work from home/leave conditions have risen dramatically in recent weeks.
