Business Succession

Prepare for the transition of ownership of your business.

Someday, the business you’ve worked hard for could become your legacy—or a source of retirement income. Creating an exit or succession plan now helps ensure your business will transition as smoothly as possible when it’s time to pass the torch.

Buy-sell agreement

This prearranged contractual agreement between a buyer and seller defines triggering events for a sale, such as voluntary termination, death, or total disability, and outlines price and other terms. 

Agreements can be funded with a variety of insurance solutions, including permanent and term life insurance or disability buy-out insurance.
