Protecting Your Investments

Hello! My name is Michael and I would like to offer you some advice and information about protecting the money that you have invested. I'm not a financial expert, but since I started out investing my money a couple of years ago, I have learnt a lot about the steps you need to take to ensure that you not only get a good return on your investment but that it is also safe from any changes in the price of gold or stock market shocks. I learnt a lot of this from my brother-in-law who is an investment expert. I hope you find my blog useful.

4 Ways a Financial Planner Can Help You Get the Right Insurance for Your Business

Financial planning for your business can be even more important than financial planning for your personal finances. When it comes to planning for your business, you should have a growth plan in place and have emergency back up plans in case cash flow gets low.

On top of that, you also need to ensure that you are prepared for anything with business insurance. Here's how financial planners can help you plan for your business insurance needs:

1. Deciding Which Type of Coverage You Need

Different industries need different types of insurance. A financial planner can essentially help you imagine what can go wrong, and they can help you identify which types of coverage you need.

You may need fleet coverage for your vehicles, you may need liability coverage in case someone gets injured on your worksite, and you may need malpractice coverage, products liability or other special types of liability-centered policies.

2. Identifying Plans That Help Attract Employees

Ideally, you don't just need insurance coverage to protect the financial aspects of your business. You also need policies that can help attract and retain talent.

To that end, you may want to offer health insurance policies that give your employees benefits that go above and beyond Australia's universal healthcare plan. You may also want to offer life insurance or other policies for your employees.

3. Determining How Much You Need

When you buy an insurance policy, it's easy to underestimate how much you need. Take a simple example of building insurance. It may sound fine to get a policy that's worth what you paid for the building.

However, if disaster strikes, that may not work. In a situation like this, you need to take into account the cost of hiring architects and builders and paying for materials. On top of that, you also have to consider a contingency plan for where you are going to do business in the meantime.

If you are just going to close up shop and suffer the losses, you may need an insurance plan that can cover your lost earnings during this time. A financial planner can help you with all of those issues.

4. Finding the Best Quotes

Finally, when you work with a financial planner who is also an insurance broker, they can help you find the best deals. As a busy business owner, you don't have time to call countless companies getting quotes. A planner can take care of that for you.
