The “One Page Strategy”

The “One Page Strategy” is designed to help identify and address your:



The “One Page Strategy” helps you and your Adviser to:

  • Design a comprehensive one page Business Succession Plan that addresses Asset, Liability and Personal Needs at the same time (during meeting);

  • Determine the amount of insurable risk involved in a worst case scenario (during meeting);

  • Determine the premium cost of insurance required to address the worst case scenario (after meeting);

  • Prioritise what risks should be addressed within a premium cost affordable and acceptable to you (after meeting); and

  • Arrange the preparation of a Business Succession Agreement (after meeting).


Risk Analysis Worksheet

The "One Page Strategy" uses a Risk Analysis Worksheet that is a convenient method of analysing your financial needs on one page.



There are a number of examples of the Risk Analysis Worksheet here.

Any Number of Needs

It is not necessary for each Business Person to have all of the Needs in order to derive a benefit from the One Page, One Policy Strategy.

The Strategy will benefit most Business People who have any two or more of the Needs.


The “One Policy Strategy”

Once you have identified your Needs, you can aggregate your Insurance Cover onto One Policy ( the One Policy Strategy).

The One Page, One Policy Strategy is an alternative to the traditional “Multiple Policy Approach”.

Adviser Tip

The One Page Strategy is designed to help you simplify Succession Planning.

It helps you understand your needs, it helps you quantify them, it helps you cost them, and it helps you prioritise them.

Once you have designed your initial Succession Plan, keeping it up-to-date is as simple as changing the One Page Summary in your Business Succession Agreement.
