Bus/Financial - Insurance
German term or phrase: D&O Versicherung
I don't usually reread translations from G/E and do not know whether this term is the name of a kind of insurance or the name of a company.
Any help would be appreciated.

English translation:D&O insurance
Explanation:
D&O Versicherung is an incomplete translation of D&O insurance or Directors & Officers insurance, which correctly translated into German would be "Organhaftpflicht" or "Organhaftpflichtversicherung". It is a third-party liability insurance cover for the directors and officers of a company against financial damage they may cause to the company.
It is a kind of insurance, and not the name of a company.

Thank you. In the meantime, in frustration, I had checked on AltaVista and found it.
