Protecting key people

Protecting key people

Any organisation in the caravan and holiday park sectors will have its physical assets insured, that’s a no brainer. But it’s surprising how many haven’t thought about key person insurance.But the loss of a senior employee, director or shareholder could have just as big an impact on the business as fraud, vandalism, fire or theft.

 

Business protection insurance is there to safeguard the business against the effects of the loss of a key person.If someone dies suddenly or has a serious illness or accident, there will be an undoubted impact on profits and day to day trading.And in addition to all this disruption, the organisation might not be able to repay a business loan.
