Permanent life insurance is a great way to fund a business succession plan, yet 40% of business owners don’t have life insurance.
Permanent life insurance offers five advantages you won’t find in common funding options like loans and working capital:
- Guarantees a fund to facilitate and back sale
- Protects your family if something happens to you
- Eliminates relying on future profits to fund your retirement
- Reduces strain on earnings
- Creates a legacy plan
A permanent life insurance policy assures there will be funds or resources available when the time comes to complete the succession plan, and it also offers built-in protection for your family.
Having permanent life insurance as part of your succession strategy can give you a significant advantage. Today, 40% of business owners don’t have life insurance, and 50% of businesses are under-insured because they don’t think their business has value, don’t know how to find out, or just don’t have the resources to do so.
Life insurance can also be a good option because it helps avoid the risks that come with relying on working capital and loans, while providing important benefits.
