Business insurance allows you to protect not only your assets (debts), but also the key people who are vital to the operation of your business.
Asset protection satisfies creditors if there comes a time that you cannot work. It also protects any assets that may have been put up for collateral for lending purposes.
Imagine if you lost a key revenue driver – what would happen? With key person insurance you can be covered for losing an employee, while being afforded the time to find and train a replacement.
Sound business succession planning can include ownership protection that covers the business during any transfer period from one owner to another.
What would happen if one of the owners died and you hadn’t negotiated a buy out price? Don’t make the mistake of assuming it will be ok. Put plans in place to ensure the business can continue without unnecessarily heightened stress levels on the remaining parties.

The rising costs of housing means many children require the assistance of their parents in order to purchase their first home.
