Succession Planning

Ensure your company's future by planning for the unexpected

Executives and other valuable personnel are a fundamental part of the day-to-day operations of your business. The loss of a key person could disrupt revenue flow and lead to internal turmoil and customer erosion.

To protect your business from unexpected key personnel losses, we can connect you with our affiliates at Truist Life Insurance Services to provide solutions specific to succession planning that help keep your organization afloat. 

Key Person Life

With Key Person Life coverage, you’ll have the security of knowing your business is protected from financial hardship. This coverage can help offset reduced sales and profits as well as mitigate potential damage to your business.

In addition, if a covered employee stays with your firm until retirement, the policy may be used as retirement income. In this case, the company must be the:

  • Applicant
  • Owner
  • Beneficiary
  • Premium payer

Buy/sell agreement

We provide coverage to fund a buy/sell agreement if a business owner dies. A buy/sell agreement binds the surviving owners to purchase the business interest of a deceased owner at a pre-arranged price. It also obligates the estate of the deceased owner to sell its interest to surviving owners.

A buy/sell agreement can:

  • Create a fair market value exchange for your business
  • Guarantee a buyer for assets your heirs may not know how to manage
  • Promote the equitable and orderly transfer of wealth, ownership and management
  • Provide your heirs with cash to pay estate debts, expenses and taxes
  • Offer tax advantages
