Key Person Insurance
Whether your organization is valued at $11 billion or $11 million, when a key person is the foundation to driving success, it's critical to protect them. What happens if your key relationship builder/owner, technology guru, or finance head become disabled? These key people are instrumental in driving deals and visualizing the organization's growth..
In the event of a serious illness or disability, cash is needed to retain key staff, fund a replacement, and/or manage any winding down as a result of the event. As with the story of Mr. Briers, a comprehensive search for a new CFO will commence immediately..
As Lloyd's of London Coverholders, Exceptional Risk Advisors specializes in writing high limit key person disability for private and public organizations.
