Personal Insurances

Protecting your income, lifestyle and loved ones

Personal Insurances aren’t about saving for disasters you think will never happen; it’s a matter of protecting yourself, your family, dependents and your lifestyle against loss.

Many people insure their home, their personal possessions and their car, but fail to insure their most important asset; their ability to produce an income and safeguard future interests.

It’s probably not something you like to think about, but if you had an accident or became seriously ill and were unable to work, would you have enough savings or insurance to deal with the financial consequences?

If you suffered a major illness and needed extensive medical treatment, time off work or modifications to your home, could you afford these expenses?

If you died, would your family or other dependents cope financially?

There are generally three main considerations; insurance to cover your debts so they’re not passed onto your family; insurance to cover medical expenses and short term drops in income; and, if your income is important to your family’s lifestyle, insurance to provide an income stream if you can no longer work.

  • When should I see a Financial Planner?

    Generally, the main reasons most people seek financial advice is to either protect themselves and their family in the event of serious illness or injury, grow their wealth through their working years and plan for retirmement.  We can help with all of this and more, but above all , we can help provide peace of mind so that you can enjoy the important things in life.  It is never too late to seek advice from a Financial Planner, but it is always better to start early.  Remember, the best time to invest was 20 years ago, and in 20 years time, the best time to invest would be today.  Our experienced Financial Planners can help you plan for your future and protect your family at any time or at any stage of your life.
