What is a business owner's policy (BOP) insurance?
A business owner's policy (BOP) combines property and liability insurance by packaging these coverages into a single insurance policy. BOP insurance helps cover claims of bodily injury or property damage and is often a good choice for small and medium-sized businesses, such as restaurants, wholesalers or retail shops.

Who needs a business owner's policy?
A business owner's policy (BOP) may be right for you if:
You have a building or property to protect. For example, your business' building or property is destroyed due to a covered loss, like a fire or theft. A BOP could help pay to repair or replace an owned building. It could also help replace destroyed personal business property, up to the limits you pick.
You want to protect your investments. For example, you get an email from a client, but you open it to discover that it contains a virus. A BOP could help pay for restoring data due to harmful code that damages or destroys any part of your company's computer system.
