Strong Suite

While you may thrive on risks, we'd like to think that you won't have to with your SME First Account's protection plan, all while seizing opportunities to expand

Insurance for the Key Person

The most valuable assets is often left uninsured - the key person of a business. The need is for the certainty that there will be cash, in the right hands, at the right time. This can be achieved by a protection plan being affected on the life of the appropriate key person(s).

Who could be the key person in your business? 

Sales Person
Technical Expert
Director/Manager (May also be the business owner)
If without them the profitability of business will be affected, more difficult to attract new customers
Without this person products might be defective, unable to meet customers need and new product development would be hindered
Without this person there would be severe implications for the business as this person creates company's vision, mission and direction of the business 

A business may be well capitalised in terms of assets and possibly (depending on accounting policy) goodwill, but what it may not have is the ability to call on fairly large sums of cash at short notice.
