How Insurance Can Protect Your Small Business

04 Oct 20185 Mins Read

Risks to your small or medium business come in many forms and differ among the various industries: perishable goods for food and beverage entities; injuries and liabilities to students for schools and nurseries, damage to stock whilst in transit for retailers; machinery breakdown of high value equipment in hospitals; treatment services in beauty salons; portable equipment for offices and so on.

The right small business insurance policy can mean the difference between the survival or demise of your business in the event of something catastrophic happening. The risks may seem negligible but the consequences could be dire.

This is why at AXA, we believe that it is not about replacement or repair, but about restoring your business.

Insurance for SMEs must be straightforward, cost-effective and comprehensive to protect the core elements of the operation: People, Assets and Profit.

Our vision is to ensure one-stop business protection for SMEs, with simple, standardised processes and products offering multiple lines of insurance bundled together.
