Risk

Businesses of all sizes face a wide variety of risks every day. Some of these risks may be trivial, while others have the potential to close down the business. A key skill is therefore the ability to find a way of mitigating these critical risks. As Mark Hussain, Global Head of Commercial Insurance & Investments at HSBC explains, it may not be feasible to completely neutralise all these risks, but it is possible to devise a strategy that reduces them to a level acceptable to the individual business

Managing trade risk

Globalisation has seen a huge increase in the number of small and medium sized businesses starting to trade internationally. While this is a worthwhile step in terms of profitability and diversification, it does involve taking on new risks. However, as Mark Hussain, Global Head of Commercial Insurance & Investments at HSBC explains, it is possible to mitigate these risks economically

Employee benefits and retention

The loss of key employees has an impact on any organisation, but the consequences can be particularly acute for small and mid-sized businesses. Apart from the costs of replacement, the disruption involved can also have a disproportionate operational impact. Fortunately, as Mark Hussain, Global Head of Commercial Insurance & Investments at HSBC explains, there are various incentives and benefits that can be used to maximise employee retention
