Take a quick Financial Freedom Check and find out how things really stack up.


Risk Management is just a fancy expression that the financial sector uses to describe Insurance.  In this case, it refers to protecting your assets (and in some cases a business) from events that may put your hard work and investments at risk.

For example, what happens if the worst occurs and you are unexpectedly injured and can’t work anymore – either temporarily or permanently? Or if you die?  What would become of your loved ones? How would you live once your savings ran out? What about the business you’ve worked so hard for? In most cases, these things can be protected against the most frightening scenarios.

Assessing and addressing your risk management strategy is an ongoing process. There are several strategies you can put in place to protect you and your family and these should be reviewed at least annually.

Risk Management is basically the transfer of risk from yourself to a third party.

Different strategies can be implemented depending on your health, your age and your occupation.

Strategies to Consider

  • Protection of your income, your most important and most valuable asset (Income Protection).
  • Protection in the event of a traumatic condition.  Crisis recovery (Trauma Insurance or Living Insurance).
  • Protection of life (Death/Life Cover) with a lump sum death benefit payment.
  • Protection in the event of full disablement (TPD Insurance).
  • Protection of business.

Affordability and your ability to be successfully underwritten with a secure contract is essential. Beware of purchasing contracts without proper underwriting and contractual terms agreed upfront. Several discount operators, such as those which advertise on TV offering insurance with “no paperwork and approved over the phone” provide limited or no underwriting, so good luck holding them to their promises if you ever need to make a claim. Often these contracts are cheap: they are cheap for a reason and cheap doesn’t actually mean good value.
