Siesko Partners, a corporate insurance and risk services firm, and National Insurance Partners have formed a strategic partnership to develop a new insurance product to serve the needs of independent directors.

The aim of the partnership is to inform independent directors about the personal risk associated with their positions and to provide them with a comprehensive protection plan.

David Siesko, principal of Siesko Partners, said: The DirectProtect policy will allow independent directors to take comfort in knowing that their personal assets are protected.

Bill Harrison, president of National Insurance Partners (NIP), added: With the support of Siesko Partners and several carriers, independent directors will now be able to do what they do best and not worry about whether the company has provided the proper directors and officers’ coverage.
