As the employer, and the owner of a small business, you have many responsibilities towards your employees. One of them is to get a good insurance policy for them so that they can get the much-needed financial backing when they need it the most. Medical emergencies can strike up at any hour, and one must be prepared to face it. Medical insurance cover can guard against the extreme financial crunch one faces due to expensive medical treatments and medicines. If you introduce a group insurance plan for the employees, where they can invest just a small reasonable amount to get insured and yet get lots of benefits and surplus than a health insurance plan they could buy outside, then it would be a great step towards their welfare. Such group plans are always chosen for the welfare of an entire group of employees at a reduced rate with many facilities. As the employer, you also, therefore, must know how much you can extract out of an insurance plan, and how much you may negotiate with an insurance provider to get the best offer for your employees.

Prescription drugs

The medical insurance company does not always cover prescription drugs, and even if they are covered, you do not get the coverage right at the time of purchase at the point of purchase. Hence this is a must thing to be discussed with the insurance provider. They should cover for drugs because medicines are the most integral part of treatment and without cover, you can go bankrupt simply by buying medicines.

Paramedical consultation

A good insurance provider must be able to help you get paramedical services at reduced rates through their channel so that your services are reasonably priced, and there again they must have a good allotment for the service per person per service type in a year.

Supply of medical equipment

Many medical emergencies and treatments need the supply of media equipment. Whether you buy or rent equipment, you would need money. And it’s best if the group insurance plan supports the purchases. That’s why as the employer you must see to it that the insurance provider has a supporting plan to cover for some must need equipment like ambulance service, buying of hearing aids, and other nursing and caring utilities.

Investment is a smart way to secure your future. There are a few tenets of investing you should know before you invest your money you should find out about the different financial instruments. The share market can be a risky place for newbie investors. Without enough diversification, you will be putting all your eggs in one basket. No one should create an unwarranted risk to the capital.

Why do investors need help in diversifying their investment portfolio?

An easy way for new investors to diversify is by investing in different types of funds. According to the expert advisors, you can begin with a broad-based index fund. Keep in mind that it should mirror the activities of the S&P 500. You can then complement that fund with another one that has shares of small companies; another one purchases shares in real estate investment trusts and another that invests in bonds.

It can be a little confusing for the new investors to diversify their investment portfolio, which is why it is worthwhile to invest in the services of RIAs (Registered Investment Advisors). Innovative Portfolios is a unique service provider that supports expert RIAs to help diversify their client portfolios. Diversification can give you the opportunity to strengthen your finances and grow your investment, by reducing the risks that come with investing.

What is asset allocation?

Till date, the most popular and effective form of diversification is asset allocation. Check if your investment portfolio has different investment classes including bonds, stocks, cash, gold, and real estate. Investing in just one investment class can lead to massive losses once the market falls. For example – when the prices of stocks fall, the value of bonds rise. The investors move their money from stocks to bonds during these periods. A portfolio that included stocks and bonds is much less likely to suffer the same level of losses as a portfolio consisting of shares only.
