Key Man Insurance
Businesses may want to protect the key employees within their firm – perhaps the key salesperson, or the IT manager without whom the business will not function properly. Keyperson / shareholder / partnership protection can provide a fixed sum should the individual be unable to work, or even die. The benefit will be designed to cover the firm’s expenses in meeting any emergency costs, recruiting a replacement employee and protecting the future of the business.
If a shareholder were to pass away, the firms remaining shareholders or directors may want to purchase the deceased’s shares from their estate promptly to maintain control of their business. The same scenario also applies to partners in a firm.

In the event of a business owner dying or being diagnosed with a terminal or critical illness, share protection can provide a lump sum to the remaining business owners. This means that in the event of a valid claim being made during the length of the policy, the policy could pay out a lump sum to help purchase the deceased partners/directors/members interest in the business.
Without Shareholder protection business owners could lose control of a proportion or, in some circumstances, all of the business.
