Business asset protection strategies

Many business owners are extremely busy doing what they do best – running their business. Often this means that they don’t adopt appropriate strategies to minimise the loss of well-earned assets. Without realising, owners could be potentially exposing their assets to risk, via trading or third party threats. Some business owners are also more vulnerable because of the industry they are in.

Ongoing planning and advice from our asset protection strategists can reduce or eliminate this exposure to risk. Essentially, we’ll help you give your assets that hard shell they need.

Asset protection is all about managing risks to both you personally and to your business. When considering if asset protection strategies are necessary for you, ask yourself some very simple questions:

  • Do you believe you have adequate personal insurances in place for your business and your family?
  • If you do believe you have adequate insurances do you know the amount the policies would pay out, who owns them and when they pay out?
  • Are you at risk of being sued personally?
  • Do you hold a significant dollar value of assets in your name?
  • Do you have an up to date will and enduring power of attorney to protect your assets in the case of death or incapacity?
  • For your business have you considered what strategies are in place to protect your business if something goes wrong?
