A well-constructed financial plan has two parts- wealth creation and wealth preservation. Wealth preservation helps you protect your ability to create wealth.
Without insurance, the wealth you have built can rapidly erode as a result of an accident, illness or death. These are the questions we prefer not to think about, but they can dramatically affect the lives of our loved ones.
What would happen if you died? Would your family be able to survive financially and continue servicing your debts?
What would happen if you were injured, fell ill or were unable to work for a long period of time? How would you and your family survive? Would you have to sell the house?
It's possible to minimise the financial loss to your family or business by putting in place appropriate risk cover such as:
- Life insurance
- Income protection insurance
- Trauma (critical illness) insurance
- Total and permanent disablement insurance
- Business expense insurance
Things you should consider
You need to be sure you aren’t over-insured- or worse still, under-insured. The type and amount of risk insurance you may need depends on a number of factors such as:
- your personal financial circumstances and objectives
- your lifestyle needs
- how many dependants you have
- your age.
As your wealth grows and personal circumstances change, your need for insurance cover may also change, so it is necessary to review your insurance cover regularly.
