Posted by on June 29th 2018 in Featured, Insurance, Thought Leadership

Business Interruption Insurance is a non-compulsory form of insurance that is intended to protect businesses against the financial loss suffered as the result of a claim.

It is designed to cover your business against a loss of income that is a result of being unable to trade due to an unexpected insured interruption, such as damage to your property.
