Risk insurance policies are financial products that will pay the policy holder if the ‘insured event’ – such as becoming unwell and being unable to work – happens.
Insured events include things like temporary illness, permanent illness, temporary injury, permanent injury, or the premature death of the insured person.
Risk insurances insure your good health, which is actually your most important financial asset. That is why risk insurances are almost always the essential first step in any financial plan. Insuring yourself against a loss of income or earning ability allows you to ensure that life for you and your loved ones goes on with the quality you want, even if something unwanted happens.
We provide the complete range of risk insurance services: death cover, total and permanent disability (TPD), income protection and trauma cover. We help you calculate the type and amount of each cover that you might need, as well as discuss other ways that you can protect yourself against financial loss.
We also show you how to minimise the premiums, especially after-tax, without unnecessarily compromising the quality of the policy or the level of cover that you acquire.
If cash flow is tight, we can assist you to find ways to insure yourself that minimise the demands on your day-to-day income. And, of course, as financial planners we can help you find ways to enhance your income. This makes everything more affordable, not just your insurances.

Everyone takes out insurance on their car, and most will take out cover for their home and contents (and you should!). Why? Because it’s a significant asset you can’t afford to lose. Yet when we talk about life insurances and income protection, people often don’t think they need, or want, life insurance. Lets look at
Too many of us take our biggest asset for granted – our ability to earn an income. But what happens when one day you are no longer able to work? What if you can no longer provide for your family? How would this impact your family’s lifestyle? In this video, Neil explains the critical role
