GrowthBusiness - SMEs, advisers and insurers should not ‘assume knowledge’ on each other’s behalf when it comes to group risk, says industry body. Here's why.

By Praseeda Nair 11 July 2017.

Every business, no matter the size, has risks. Anytime human beings perform manual processes, there runs a risk of something being done wrong – either accidentally or on purpose.
