Every business needs to protect itself. For most businesses the most valuable asset it has is its people. Without them, a company’s survival could be at serious risk.
Introduction to business protection
With that in mind we can help you take the right steps to protect your people and your business. After all, you already protect many of the important things that keep your business running smoothly, like property, fleets and stock. So you should also insure your most valuable assets: your staff and shareholders.
IF PREMIUMS ARE NOT MAINTAINED, THEN COVER WILL LAPSE.
THE POLICY MAY NOT COVER ALL THE DEFINITIONS OF A CRITICAL ILLNESS. FOR DEFINITIONS PLEASE REFER TO THE KEY FEATURES AND POLICY DOCUMENT.
Key Person Insurance
Directors and employees with highly specialist skills or knowledge are key employees of the companies they work for. To lose one as a result of a critical illness or death can be damaging to the business. That is why taking out Key Person insurance to protect the company is a wise move.
Key Person insurances can provide several benefits. These can include:
- Paying the costs of a temporary replacement
- Meeting the costs of recruiting a permanent replacement
- Covering the cost of death or incapacity of a key member of staff.
The full scope of cover will depend on the type of policy purchased but companies ignore the risks of losing key staff at their peril. Shareholders, bank managers, suppliers and customers may not be so laid back.
