Protection for your business and
most valuable assets
Whether you’re a Business Owner, Sole Trader or run a Limited Company, no matter how small or large your ventures are, you have a great deal of responsibility. You might be running things with your business partner, or taking control of everything yourself, either way, you’re at the top of your game.
You could be solely responsible for the future of your business, for bringing in income each month for your family, for supporting your employees, for maintaining your clients, for managing your reputation, for making the important decisions. It falls on your shoulders. What would happen if something went wrong? If you had to declare bankruptcy? If your key employee leaves?
Your business needs a plan in place for the “what if’s” of the future. You need financial security, and confidence in knowing that your business can recover should the worst happen.
What we can do for you
You need support and protection for your business, and we can help you achieve this. Business insurance can be a life-line when it’s needed most, it can give you the aid you need to recover and succeed in business. It can safeguard your assets and protect your reputation. Insurance can be invaluable for you.
You can find cover that will assist in paying any legal costs if someone makes a claim against you. This is especially important if you offer advice or a service. It can reduce financial strain while you repair your reputation.
Covering the losses when a key employee can no longer work is something insurance can really help with. With an insurance pay-out, you could cover any losses as well as the costs of recruitment and training a replacement.
Insurance can assist you with repaying outstanding loans too. When a business guarantor passes away or is diagnosed with a critical illness, you could find yourself taking on the debt. An insurance pay-out could help reduce or pay off that loan.
When shareholders pass away, you may want to purchase their shares, take control of the business. An insurance pay-out could give you the funds to be able to do this, to ensure the future of the business is in your hands.
Furthermore, you can support yourself and your colleagues through medical cover or life insurance for the entire business. Insurance allows you to take care of your employees as well as your business.
Insurance can give you financial security when things go wrong.

Insurance is wise
Active Brokers is a business, run by a business owner, and made up of self-employed advisers. We understand exactly what running a business or being a sole trader is like, and what you will need to have covered.
Having insurance is not just a requirement in many cases, but a wise business decision for the future, as our Managing Director and founder knows well.
When Gary founded Active Brokers, it was imperative he had Professional Indemnity Insurance. Not only is it a requirement of our regulator, but it’s wise to have in any advice based business. Having that insurance in place means that if a claim against Active Brokers was ever made, the legal costs would be covered for us. A claim could put Gary’s integrity on the line, but the financial security this cover offers means we can focus on recovering without worrying about the costs.
As you know, business has expanded a lot since the early days; Gary has found key employees and he also started a family and got a mortgage. Employers’ Liability Insurance and Keyman Insurance is of incredible importance for our small, dedicated team.
With a sales based business, his advisers contribute greatly to the income of Active Brokers. His operations manager ensures clients are looked after, and the business administration is done to the highest standard. If anything happened to these key employees in relation to death or illness, Gary would need to make sure he can continue trading without affecting the business and other staff.
The loss of a key person results in a lot time and money spent searching, recruiting, training and restructuring of the business. Not having cover in place could result in hastily hiring the wrong team member and causing more financial risks and worries. With this important piece of insurance, Gary has a financial safety net allowing Active Brokers to continue trading if the worst happened to an employee, and allows Gary some time to recover from the loss.
“I have insurance to protect my reputation, my business’s achievements, the hard work my team puts into Active Brokers, my finances, and my family. As my journey goes on and business evolves, there’s no doubt that my insurance needs will change too.
What I have learned from successfully being self-employed and running a business for over a decade, is that Insurance is indispensable.
I have successfully found bespoke insurance for the business owners that have approached me, and I have seen how quickly a business can fall apart when something goes wrong and they don’t have the right insurance in place.” Gary Das, Managing Director of Active Brokers
