Risk management and personal insurance are an integral part of the financial planning process. However, most people find the concepts of risk and insurance difficult to understand. That’s not supposed to be the case because when it comes to you and your loved ones, there’s no risking it.
WHAT ARE RISK MANAGEMENT AND PERSONAL INSURANCE?
You don’t buy life insurance because you are going to die, but because those you love are going to live.
Some risks may be prevented, but most are unexpected. Among other consequences, risk takes a toll on people’s finances. In the absence of financial protection, a person’s loved ones suffer the most. This is the essence of insurance, with the central question being: if something unexpected happens, how can its financial effects be mitigated; or if it involves someone passing, how can you take care of loved ones?
We always say that we can’t protect you from misfortune — a serious accident or illness, for example — but we can help you weather the storm if it strikes. We can help ensure that you, or your family, will continue to have the financial resources you need and lifestyle you want at the most crucial times — without the forced loss of investments, superannuation, or property.
Among the strategies that fall under risk management and insurance are personal risk protection, estate planning, and business protection, and succession planning.
We always hope that it’s the biggest waste of money for your rather than the best investment you ever made.
Protect your future through effective risk insurance
We can’t protect you from misfortune — a serious accident or illness for example — but we can help you weather the storm if it strikes. We can help ensure that you, or your family, will continue to have the financial resources you need and lifestyle you want at the most crucial times — without the forced loss of investments, superannuation or property. How? In several ways.
PERSONAL RISK PROTECTION
Little can be achieved financially, without establishing a regular, disciplined savings pattern. We will help you find the disposable income you never knew you had, and put it to good use.
True wealth is built from wise investment. We customise each investment portfolio to suit your personal circumstances, risk tolerance and time frame.
Includes succession planning. Not all debt is your enemy, but having a clear strategy to manage and eliminate debt over time is essential.
