Providing Business Succession plan and Key Person cover recommendations

Ensuring that your business can face adversity suffered through the loss of key personnel is paramount. People are important, but a true business must be able to survive the loss through death or accident of important management and staff in their business, and have your insurance able to be triggered correctly and matched with any buy / sell agreements between the owners or management of a business. We can introduce you to strategic partners who can assist in this area.

Underwriter Presentations and Risk Control surveys

For major businesses, a professional survey of your property for insurance purposes can accomplish two major tasks – present your business to insurers in a professional manner and thus allow you to control the process of how you want to be presented and perceived by the insurance market. Often, insurers will conduct their own surveys; however, this will mean that you are at the mercy of how they interpret your business.

Furthermore, a survey will also point out areas that you may consider for improvement in order to ensure that your risk profile is reduced.

Premium Funding

If you would prefer to pay for your insurance in instalments, we can arrange this for you through a premium funding service. This means your annual premium can be split into regular payments. Funding your premium this way can let you regulate your cash flow. Premium funding can also protect and maintain existing banking "draw down" facilities and provide an unsecured, off balance sheet loan.
