Do You Have Liability Protection?

Do You Have Liability Protection?

The risks to your wealth aren’t only in the financial markets.
The wealthier you become, the more liability protection matters. We live in a litigious world, one in which
even friends and neighbors can be convinced to see opportunity in the wake of misfortune.
A (larger) umbrella liability policy may be an excellent idea. Could you afford a six-figure drawdown
of your personal assets to settle a lawsuit? Ideally, you have umbrella liability coverage with a limit that
equals or exceeds your net worth. The premiums are reasonable: $1 million of coverage commonly costs
$150 to $300 per year, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Premiums may then rise only
incrementally for larger policies. You may want to consider both general and professional liability coverage,
the latter of which protects a business against damage done by its services or products.1 Consider creating
an LLC or S corp. If you own rental property, setting up a limited liability or S corporation can be a wise
move. If tenants want to sue for any reason, they will be suing the corporate entity rather than you. Your
other personal assets will be shielded from their claims.
What degree of liability protection do you have now? Many high net worth professionals and business
owners are inadequately covered against “predators and creditors.” This is worth a conversation. Real
wealth demands an advanced asset protection strategy.
