What is Shareholder/Partner Protection
The issues that affect directors are similar to those that concerns business partners.
If no plans are put in place should a director die, then the surviving directors run the risk of the shares passing to someone with no interest in the business, a different approach or priorities for the business, or even a competitor that might then be in a position to mount a takeover bid.
Typically on death or illness, business owners intend that their families receive value for their shareholding and the surviving shareholders/partners would like to purchase the deceased shares pro-rata to existing holdings. Shareholder Protection aims to put in place all provisions, to ensure that this will happen. We use Tax efficient products to ensure that suitable protection is provided
What is Loan Protection?
As a company grows, it will require additional funding, as initial shareholder or partner capital has been exhausted. The ability to repay any borrowing may well be dependent on the continued ability of one or two key people to fully participate in the business.
Should they die or suffer a Critical Illness this could lead to a break in short term cash flow, leading to an inability to service loan repayments. A lender could call in loans or withdraw facilities, causing the company hardship in the long term.
Loan protection aims to mitigate against these risks by taking appropriate protection that can provide a cash lump sum to pay off debt or a regular income to service the debt.
Key Person Protection
This is where the business insures against the financial loss that it may suffer as a result of losing a “key” employee to death or a specified Critical Illness.
