Berkshire Hathaway’s Insurance Group announced the launch of THREE, its three-page, game-changing, comprehensive insurance product for small business. Businesses typically need several types of insurance to protect their interests, but until now they could only get that protection by buying multiple, unconnected and overly complex policies–each of which can be over fifty pages in length.

In three straightforward, plain English pages, THREE provides insurance coverage for workers compensation, multiple liability coverages (including general liability, errors and omissions, and cyber), property and auto – all the insurance most any small business could need. Replacing the usual chores of time-consuming, multiple applications and coordination, THREE delivers one fully comprehensive (and comprehensible) small business policy, in a fast, easy one-stop shopping experience. Efficiency is increased further by providing THREE direct to small businesses, without the need to go through a broker or third party. Minimizing the risk of not knowing what is being covered, and which policy might apply, makes THREE the right policy for risk averse risk takers.
