Share purchase protection

What is share purchase protection?

If the co-owner of a business dies or becomes seriously ill, share purchase protection gives the remaining shareholders in the business the option of buying their shares and therefore keeping control of the business.

  • Can be arranged for all types of companies
  • Choose the type of policy and the term of the cover
  • Life cover and critical illness protection available
  • Flexibility in the level of benefit

  • You want to choose both the type of policy, with life cover and critical illness protection available, and also the term of the cover
