Too few firms consider the impact of the death of a Key Individual or Business Partner. In the event of a worst case scenario there a number of options to help minimise business risk and provide some form of continuity at a difficult time.
Keyman Insurance This would pay the business a lump sum on the death of a valuable employee to cover lost revenues or profits. It is also possible to arrange for regular payments to be made to cover lost revenues for a temporary period if the employee is absent from work for a sustained period due to illness or accident.
Shareholder and Partnership Protection These arrangements will comprise an insurance policy which will pay out an agreed sum assured on the death of a shareholder or business partner. The policy will normally be written in trust for the surviving shareholders /partners who will receive the proceeds to enable them to purchase the deceased shareholder’s / partner’s interest in the business.
These arrangements can be complex and it is important they are set up correctly.
