Business protection

Your key people are your biggest business assets, but are you covered in case anything happens to them? We can help you put the right plans in place.

Advice on business protection

If you run a business, you’ll know that your most valuable resource is your top people. Your decision makers, senior management and any directors are vital to the day-to-day running of your business. They’re vital to the success of your business and losing their expertise can have far-reaching consequences. You need to find a way to protect yourself, so if the worse happens it doesn’t become a catastrophe.

An expert financial planner can help. Somebody with the right skills and experience of the market and regulatory framework, and who can show you how to safeguard your business should one of your key people fall seriously ill or die.

How we can help

Our team of advisers can give you all the support and guidance you need. We’ll take the time to understand your company and strategy, then we‘ll explain the different types of protection and how they might be relevant to your business. In any event, we’ll recommend the most suitable path for you and your company.

Key person protection

This one of the biggest steps you can take to protect your business. It involves using life insurance policies to make sure you have the means to:

  • employ a replacement in the event of death
  • employ a replacement in the event of long-term illness or injury
  • carry on despite such a setback

Shareholder protection

This works in the same way as key person protection and uses insurance policies to ensure you have the money to:

  • support business arrangements for shareholders
  • protect a business in the event of the death of a shareholder
  • support the family of the shareholder

Our service covers it all

We can also combine your financial planning and legal management. This way we get to understand you better, and can adapt plans to suit your changing needs. And you get to save time and money. The sort of matters we can bring under this single service include:

  • Inheritance tax planning – will writing, power of attorney arrangements
  • Family law – protection reviews, pension sharing, savings for children, school fees
  • Trust law – investments, diversification, advising trustees, long-term care
  • Commercial/employment law – business protection, pensions, auto enrolment
