Whether a start-up or an established SME: personal advice is important because insurance for companies can be very complex and also because both the company and the related risks are constantly changing. The business can grow, new employees and business partners may come on board, new products will be launched, and distribution channels may be expanded. In short, each SME is unique – as are its risks and insurance needs.
