What Is the Key Man Clause?

Key man clauses trigger anytime the executives named by the clause aren't spending enough time managing the firm's investments. This can happen if the executive:

  • Dies
  • Suffers a permanent or long-term disability
  • Spends too much time at another job
  • Quits or is fired
  • Is convicted of a serious crime
