Shareholder protection

Protect your business for life

If you’re the owner or director of an SME, you’re the lifeblood of your business. So what happens when you’re not there to keep it going and growing?

It’s a fact that as the leader of an SME, you’re far more hands-on in the day-to-day running of your business. So the loss of a partner, member or shareholder can have a huge impact on its performance. Fortunately, there are two different ways to insure you against life’s unforeseen events.

Individual Purchase Option

This is where you cover yourself and your family. It’s an individual arrangement where each business owner takes out a protection plan on their own life for the value of their share of the business. In the event of the death or critical illness of one of the owners, the others will receive the proceeds of the plan. They can then use the money to buy the shares of the deceased or critically ill business owner.

Not only will it keep the business up and running. It gives financial peace of mind to the family of the business owner who passes, or becomes critically ill. As well as the choice to sell their share of the business, the remaining owners have the option to purchase the extra share.

Company Purchase Option

This policy lets the business buy the shares of a deceased or critically ill shareholder. Here, your business takes out a plan on the life of the shareholder. If they should pass away or become critically ill, the proceeds of the plan would be used by the business to buy the shares of the affected shareholder.
