Business Protection

For intermediaries only

Helping protect your clients' businesses and expand yours

Business continuity and succession planning may not be high on the priority list of many businesses. However, losing a key employee could have a devastating effect financially on a business. And while business succession planning is a key part in protecting the stability and continuity of a business, frequently little or no consideration is given to this planning.

With 5.7 million businesses in the UK- each with their own specific financial needs - make sure you're not missing out on a great opportunity to grow yours.

Business protection made easy

Our new business protection toolkit is here

We're here to help

Business protection isn't as complicated as you might think. We’ve developed a new Business protection toolkit – giving you all the support and information you need at your fingertips to understand, discuss and write business protection. 

Our Business Protection menu

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 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.
