Being a businessman is a thrill and a headache at the same time. It is thrilling because it gives you the freedom to be your own boss and take decisions and work as you like. It is a headache because oftentimes you are on the edge yourself to decide upon the next move and make things happen quickly.


Coupled with that, you have to play different roles at the same time and make every role you play a success. The end result is rather than the freedom you cherish enjoying doing business, the business risks you shoulder will weigh you down and drain your physical, mental, emotional, financial, and legal stamina.


The first three energy planes are an absolute must for you as an ‘individual’ while the other two - that is the financial crisis and legal complications - have the potential to shatter the very existence of your business.


As a businessman, you may be a freelancer, an independent consultant, a startup, a small or medium business, or a large company, irrespective of the nature, industry, or size of your business, having the right insurance coverage helps you save sleepless nights, financial and reputation losses and legal costs.

A research study by the “Institute For Legal Reform”, the commercial tort liability of small and medium businesses (SMBs) increased from $300 billion to $343 billion from 2016 to 2018 (that is from Rs.22000 Cr to Rs.25,000Cr) an increase of 14% in two years time and the trend keeps moving up the ladder.


This proves that SMBs bore disproportionately higher liability costs than bigger corporations. They bore 39% business tort liability cost which is 10 times more than their earnings (revenue). Therefore the necessity of having suitable and appropriate business insurance becomes all the more important for SMBs.

The latest reported penalty paid by a single company (‘Amazon’) amounts to a whopping 746 Million Euros for exposing customer data (July 30, 2021.) i.e. around Rs.6600Cr. For Amazon, it may not be a big amount but for a SMB even Rs.1 Cr will lead to closure of the business.


The sad reality observed is that SMBs are yet to  realize this critical facor. As a result, their digitala assets as well other crucial business components does not have any insurance coverage.
