Depending on the nature of your business, these are some of the short-term insurance options you should discuss with your broker:
- Key person insurance – The loss of a specialist employee can set your business back. Key person insurance provides the funds to find and train a replacement and helps to compensate for temporary loss of business.
- Employees’ insurance – Businesses often take out life and disability insurance to protect employees and the company in the event of work-related injuries.
- Travel insurance – If you employ sales reps or people who travel frequently as part of the job, the business also needs to provide some form of travel insurance.
- Buy-and-sell insurance – This is particularly important for business partners and shareholders because it puts a plan in place in the event of one of the partners dying, becoming disabled or retiring. The policy allows the business to buy back the partner’s share and compensate the family accordingly.
