The year of living dangerously: Avoiding the unmanageable and
managing the unavoidable
Join SACC New York and Crystal & Company on November 19 for an interactive presentation and panel discussion designed to help Chamber members think strategically about risk and protect business and private wealth.
What financial risks and concerns do business owners and key decision makers of subsidiaries of Swedish companies operating in the U.S. face? This seminar will feature demonstrations of personal and professional insurance issues in the U.S., and a panel of experts will answer questions and concerns such as:
- Are you aware of the tax advantages of U.S.-based executive benefits programs? You might not be maximizing your retirement strategy.
- Are you aware of the insurance requirements for your business operations in the U.S.? The financial stability of your business could be at risk.
- Do you sit on boards of directors of corporations or non-profits? Does your company’s domestic D&O policy extend to issues in the U.S.? Your personal wealth could be at risk.
- Do you have fine art, jewelry, or other collectibles? It is likely that they may not be covered in your personal insurance policies.
