Risk Management and Asset Protection – Peace of Mind
Risk Management and Asset Protection are all too often treated as an afterthought. Unfortunately, too often people draw excessive comfort from a trouble-free past and blindly project this experience forward. In fact, they regularly do this at their peril.
The reality is that there are many events that can potentially threaten your business, lifestyle and the wealth you have created.
Negative events don’t just happen to ‘other’ people – they happen to people just like you!
This is why Risk Management and Asset Protection are so critical!
Risk Management – Eliminate and Mitigate
Creating the lifestyle, wealth and security you seek, is only half the battle. Hanging onto it is equally important, otherwise years of work can disappear overnight!
To reduce the risk of something going wrong, you need to actively employ good business management practices to identify threats, eliminate risk or where this is not possible, mitigate them.
Many risks can be eliminated or reduced to acceptable levels so long as you have identified them and taken appropriate action.
Nevertheless, not all risk can be eliminated.
Risk Management and Asset Protection – Hope for the Best, Plan for the Worst!
Risk Management and Asset Protection are about recognising that significant negative events do occur and that not all risks can be eliminated! You must plan for the worst and reduce the impact to the greatest extent possible.
This starts with:
- Operating your business through the appropriate legal structure
- Separating legal title of your business assets from business risk and liabilities
- Separating legal title of personal assets from business risks and liabilities
- Separating business assets from potential personal risks and liabilities
- Actively employing suitable business management practices to identify threats and avoid risks or mitigate them
Risk Management and Asset Protection – Protecting Your Wealth and Future
At Fortitude, we help with Risk Management and Asset Protection by identifying your key risks and implementing appropriate mitigation and protection strategies. This involves reviewing your:
- Business’s legal structure and asset ownership arrangements
- Personal asset ownership arrangements
- Estate planning and current personal risk mitigation initiatives
- Business management, planning, practices and current risk mitigation initiatives
Those with enough experience in business and life know that things go wrong, sometimes seriously wrong! They hope for the best – but plan for the worst!
Taking this approach could protect you from catastrophe and having to start all over.
