Shareholder and Partnership Protection

Partners and major shareholders have the future of the business in their sights, planning for the long-term, steering the company in the right direction. The loss of a partner to illness, disablement or death is a heavy blow for the family, and has serious implications for the business.

What is Partnership & Shareholder Protection?

It aims to ensure partners can maintain control of the business in the unhappy event of a partner’s death. It also means that the family benefit from the partner’s share of the business, and their contribution to it.

Who needs it?

Any business with more than one partner or shareholder.

How is this different from Key Person Insurance?

This cover differs in several important ways. It helps create the right conditions for succession-planning, and provides for the affected partner’s or shareholder’s family. It is a good idea to consider having both Key Person and Partner & Shareholder cover to help protect profits, meet the company’s commitments, and provide funding for business continuity. A partner or shareholder may also be your business’s key person.

Why do businesses take out this kind of cover?

For many reasons. The long-term future and direction of the business depends on its major shareholders and partners; losing a partner to illness, disablement or death has the potential to expose the business to loss of control and a turbulent period of succession. Partnership and Shareholder Protection covers funding to buy the partner’s beneficiaries’ share, keep control of the business and steer it towards a smooth succession.

What about the partner’s next-of-kin?

The policy protects them too, enabling them to receive a payment for their share of the business. Beneficiaries who have neither the experience nor the appetite to contribute to the business appreciate a swift resolution of their partner’s business affairs.
