Considering an investment?

You've bought into the vision. You like the team. And you love their business plan. Now, wouldn't it clinch the deal to know that your investment can be comprehensively protected?

60% of businesses in the UK are inadequately insured. 70% either won't re-open or will fail within 3 years of a serious fire. How safe is your investment?*

For venture capitalists, business angels and other investors, we provide a valuable due diligence insurance service protecting your investment, while controlling costs to create competitive advantage - helping to build value into the enterprise.

Our flexible, modular approach to building insurance portfolios ensures enhanced levels of security for entrepreneurs, staff and investors, creates investor attraction, facilitates later-stage investment and enhances ROI.

How can La Playa add value?

  • We'll review the business plan and report on insurable risk exposures affecting the enterprise at each stage of growth.
  • We can identify the best insurance providers for the enterprise.
  • We'll negotiate competitive and flexible insurance solutions, providing the broadest available cover with the most secure providers.
  • We'll provide expert claim handling services and ongoing risk management reviews, from start up to IPO and beyond.
  • Selling the business, either privately or publicly, is a major mark of success – but it's also a moment of great vulnerability. La Playa will explain how you can mitigate the risks with intelligent insurance planning.
