A series of interactive workshops highlighting opportunities in the business protection market for financial advisers is being launched by Aegon Scottish Equitable.
It says the events will help dispel the myth it is over complicated, especially on tax and trust issues, and could help open a new income stream.
The main facet of business protection is key person cover, which guards the company against the loss of essential employees to death, illness or injury.
"These interactive sessions have proved extremely valuable in helping advisers identify those clients who need to understand the importance of protecting their businesses and the demand has been very positive," says Rod McKie, head of individual protection at Aegon.
"In addition to the workshops, we have also developed an online toolkit to further help advisers recognise the potential of this valuable market."
