Business Protection

Business owners need insurance for similar reasons to personal.

Income replacement and to protect the running of the current business and the future of the company. If a business partner, owner or key employee is suddenly gone, the business can quickly deteriorate.

The questions that need to be answered:

  • In the event of death or disablement will the business be able to continue to prosper?
  • Will the remaining business owners be forced to work with the family members of the departing owner?
  • How much will the business pay the departing owner’s estate for his or her share in the business, where does that money come from and at what cost?
  • How will the business repay its loans now that one of the business owners has died, is permanently incapacitated or has suffered from a major medical event? And if the business can’t repay the loans, will the bank call for the immediate repayment and renegotiation of personal guarantees given by all owners?

So how do we do it?
