Types of insurance


Your greatest asset is your ability to earn an income. Have you ever thought about how you and/or your family would cope financially in the event of death, disability or serious illness?

The good news is that with the right insurance in place you can still protect what you value most – lifestyle, family, health, even the home you live in, no matter what.

We provide advice on the following benefits:

  • Life Cover – A lump-sum or monthly payment in the event of death or terminal illness (or a combination of both).
  • Trauma Cover – A lump-sum payment in the event of a serious illness or accident
  • Income Cover – A monthly payment if you are unable to work because of a disability or serious illness
  • Total and Permanent Disablement Cover – A lump-sum payment if you become totally and permanently disabled
  • Mortgage Cover – A monthly payment to cover the cost of your mortgage if you are unable to work because of a disability or serious illness
  • Medical Cover – provides access to non-acute medical treatment as and when required without the need for waiting lists or unnecessary delays


If you or one of your key people were unable to take care of the business due to illness, injury or death will the financial needs of you and your business be met?

Business insurance provides a contingency plan for your business – it works when you can’t.

We provide advice on the following benefits:

  • Shareholder Protection
  • Key Person Cover
  • Business Continuation
  • Group insurance for the workplace

Why use an adviser?

With so many options out there and so many ‘what ifs?’ it’s important that you make an informed decision about protecting yourself, your family and/or your business.

Every year new products are being introduced by a wide range of institutions. It is unrealistic for any one company to provide all of the best products available. In today’s world most people do not have the time to survey the market for themselves.

An adviser has the time, experience and necessary information to research the marketplace and offer the products best suited to your needs.

Many thanks Phil for all you have done for our family. It’s been a long time that you’ve helped us with our insurance needs and provided advice on the best way forward. I’ve appreciated even more the friendship you’ve shown to all of us.
