Owning a business is more than a full-time job, it is a way of life. For finance and insurance brokers, the job is all-encompassing, exciting and demanding. Although planning for the up days is more fun, planning for the down days is necessary too. That is why every financial business owner must consider three types of protection for these down days, including crime insurance, cyber liability and professional liability.
Although you may not like to think about it, crime is common and it can happen to your business. Crime insurance covers many different possible misconducts including, but not limited to, robbery, extortion and fraud. In this day and age, cyber liability is equally important. Whether intentional or not, online breaches or copyright infringement can end up costing your corporation thousands or even millions of dollars in revenue. The worst case scenario, for finance and insurance brokers, is a crime that ends up costing your clients money out of their own pockets. Not only does this negatively impact their lives, but tarnishes your reputation as well. Professional liability protects you and your company in the case of a lawsuit filed against you, such as due to perceived negligence, poor financial guidance, or inappropriate employment practices. Protect your livelihood by looking into these three types of insurance today.
