Brown and Brown Metro's experienced agents will not only analyze your business to identify assets exposed to loss, but also present solutions to insure potential losses.

Management liability policies are available to provide financial protection for companies and their individual owners and officers for these kinds of exposures, including:

 

• Director's and Officer's Liability
• Employment Practices Liability
• Fiduciary Liability
• Crime

 

Trade Credit Insurance

Trade Credit policies allow businesses to insure their accounts receivable from loss due to nonpayment from a buyer of goods or services. In addition, insurers providing trade credit insurance policies can often offer additional services to the insured company such as financial analysis of potential customers and debt collection services.
