Are you under insured – many businesses are!

Most businesses are under insured and holding back on insurance can be tempting when money’s tight. Yet managing your risks could mean the difference between going under and thriving.  By nature, business owners are positive, ‘glass half full’ types, who’s entrepreneurial spirit may lead them to think ‘she’ll be right’.  But successful businesses run according to a business plan, and part of that planning is to plan for the unexpected.

Just imagine switching off your phone, jumping on a plane and flying far away without a word to anyone. How many of you are confident that your business will continue to run profitably without any further instruction or input from YOU?

This unexpected departure can happen to anyone of us at any time – is your business prepared?

This workshop will cover important questions, like:

Why it’s important for business owners to plan to manage risks?

How do you prioritise risks and decide what risks to insure?

How do you create options for your business to continue in the short to medium term if you can’t work?

How do you plan for the worst-case situations to ensure your wealth and assets are protected from creditors, even if you have to shut the business down?

How do you set up the optimal structure to protect the income you generate and what is the role of ACC and Income Protection in your plan?

Who should attend this workshop? Small or medium sized business owners or professional advisers.

Tracey Jones a

ACC and business risk planning are a specialised field. Tracey is one of the few advisers nationwide who is experienced and qualified to work with self-employed, contractors, business owners and ACC, since 2005. She was the winner of the 2017 Professional Advisers Association Judges Award for Insurance Excellence. “The experience of insurance should provide you with certainty that you have received great advice and you have a financial advisor alongside you that you trust.”

After 17 years in the industry, the most frustrating thing about my work is that I constantly see insurance set up incorrectly. It’s either outdated, overpriced, the products are not the best, or, it will no longer work at claim time because it hasn’t been reviewed and the person’s situation has changed. Most people are unfamiliar with their own insurance policies and do not have a comprehensive clear approach, or an adviser who takes time to explain it all.

I’m on a crusade to change this ..… It’s time to feel good about insurance!
