 The Service

An independent 7-step advice process to ensure you obtain the right type of cover, from the best provider, at an affordable price.

The steps taken are as follows:

Step 1: We have a personal discussion of your needs and priorities. This usually occurs via a call using Teams, Zoom or simply a standard phone call.

Step 2: Assess your financial position to learn about what you own and what you owe, get to grips with your cash flow and understand the areas where cover could be needed.

Step 3: Complete a review of your existing employment benefits and protection policies already in place. I find that many people pay for duplicate cover and then leave gaps elsewhere. Many also rely on employment benefits and then change jobs and lose these benefits when they are older, at a time when insurance becomes more expensive and difficult to put in place.

Step 4: Undertake independent research to select the most appropriate type of cover, amount of cover, from the best provider, and at the most cost-effective price.

Step 5: Present and explain your options so you understand the proposals.

Step 6: Confirm the recommended solutions in your own personal written report to back-up the understanding you have already gained and to fully outline the important features of the policy.

Step 7: Full assistance completing the application and underwriting process until your risk is accepted by your chosen insurance provider and your policy goes live.

All of the above steps can be provided without any direct upfront charge to you. I would be paid directly via the respective insurance providers for placing business with them and therefore there is no obligation to start this advice process. The cost of my advice, expertise and services are built into the regular monthly premiums.

A quick summary of the 7-step process:

1. Personal discussion about you and your family, or business.

2. Assess your financial position.

3. Review existing employment benefits and protection policies.

4. Complete independent research.

5. Present and explain proposals.

6. Provide written report.

7. Help you apply for cover.
