Business Protection

For intermediaries only

Many businesses try to protect themselves against every eventuality — buying insurance for their buildings, fixtures and fittings, stock, vehicles and protecting their potential liabilities. But what would happen if your client’s business lost a key employee?

Our Business Protection solutions could be the one thing that keeps their business going if the worst happened. And, to help, we’ve created a product that’s so flexible every business can get the right cover for them.

Your toolkit

We’re here to support you. We have a number of calculators, sales aids and tools to help you help your clients protect their business.

The basics

Our Business Protection menu is one of the most flexible and comprehensive products in the market. It offers:

  • a range of main benefits including life protection, reducing life protection, critical illness protection, life with critical illness protection, reducing life with critical illness protection, key person income protection and executive income protection - total permanent disability is also available with critical illness benefits;
  • an immediate cover facility (ICF) if business protection is urgent - we can put 60 days’ cover in place immediately while we request any routine medical information for up to £3.5 million for life protection and £1.5 million for critical illness protection; 
  • the option to protect payments if the insured person can’t work due to sickness or accident for a lengthy period;
  • guaranteed insurability options – allowing a business, in certain circumstances, to increase the insured person's benefit amount because their circumstances have changed, and
  • access to a new key person replacement service, provided by our partners Cazden. This is in addition to our existing health and wellbeing service provided by our partners Health Assured.
