Fido’s in charge! Critical Illness is no shaggy dog story

An imbalance in the UK

It’s a slightly surprising (to me anyway) fact that there are more pet insurance policies than critical illness policies in the UK. In research in 2012 there were 5.9m pet insurance policies in place but only 4.5m critical illness policies. Source Ageas http://annualreview2012.ageas.com/insurance-business/uk/

As a business protection specialist the only logical thought I have is that a lot of UK business owners are expecting Fido to step in to the breach and run the company should they ever suffer a critical illness such as heart attack, cancer or a stroke, the biggies.

I know a dog is man’s best friend but as much as my dog loves me I don’t think my clients would appreciate a visit from a dog to arrange some critical illness cover even if she tried her best. I’m sure she’d rather know I’ve put some Key Person cover in place so if the worst happens to me someone can run my business for me and I can still pay all the bills and keep her in dog biscuits, treats. toys, shampoo…
