Shareholder Protection Insurance

Many New Zealand businesses have more than one shareholder, and that's where shareholder protection can become part of a wider risk and succession planning. When structured correctly, this type of insurance is designed to support your company should a shareholder be forced to sell up due to serious illness, injury, or worse, allowing the other shareholders to step up and retain ownership.

Is your business growing and becoming more and more valuable? It may be time to consider shareholder protection insurance. For example, if anything serious happened to a shareholder, would the other shareholders have the money to purchase the vacant shares and retain ownership of the company?

As insurance advisers, we can help you work out whether shareholder insurance is right for you, how much of it you may need, and how to structure your policy to protect the capital value of your business.

Key Person Insurance

Your machines and premises are important, but how would your business survive without its key employees? By covering the cost of bringing in a replacement, key person insurance is designed to help your business keep its doors open even if one of your critical staff members was off work due to serious illness, injury, or worse.

Who are your "key people"? A "key person" can be either an owner or an employee. It may be a salesperson, a director, or a team member with hard-to-replace skills - anyone whose loss can cause financial strain to the business. Yes, it could even be you. 

By understanding how your business is structured and where its strengths lie, we can help you identify critical team members and secure a financial lifeline for your business.

FAQs

Have a few questions? We're here to help.

  • What do you charge for your advice services?

    We do not charge our clients for our services; instead we receive commission from the insurance provider once the agreed solution is confirmed. We receive this remuneration in the form of upfront and trail commission. To find out more about how we are remunerated, please view our Disclosure Statements on the About Page.

  • Why should I get advice?

    There are lots of reasons, but if we were to sum it up in three key points it would be: (1) We do the legwork and assess - from multiple providers - the right options for you from the market (not just one company). Then we couple that with recommendations and information so you can make an informed choice for your needs. (2) We’re in your corner should you need to make a claim - we do all we can to reduce stress and facilitate the claim process for you. (3) It’s an ongoing relationship - we’re here for your questions at any time; you deal with the same person who knows you and your circumstances.

  • Do you help at claim time?

    Absolutely. Every step of the way. From helping you with forms and documentation, to negotiating with the insurers on your behalf. We’re in your corner to help alleviate claim-time-stress so that you can focus on what matters most – you and your family.

  • What should I spend on insurance?

    Like insurance itself, there is no single answer to this question. It depends on your areas of risk and needs. Having says that though, it is really important that you don’t spend too much by taking out unnecessary cover or excessive levels of cover, or too little, which may leave you financially exposed should the unforeseen happen. Getting it just right for your needs and budget is a big part of what we do.
