What is life insurance?
Life Insurance is sometimes used as a general term for all the policies that life insurers offer. To break it down, life insurance comes in many shapes and forms. And here are the most common ones:
- Life Insurance: sometimes called death benefit
- Accident Death Insurance: pays a lump sum if you die in an accident
- Trauma or Critical Illness: pays a lump sum if you are diagnosed with a specific illness
- Income Protection Insurance: secures a monthly income if you cannot work due to illness or accident
- Mortgage Protection: pays a tax-free monthly benefit to cover your mortgage
I assist you in investing offshore. This gives your money the chance to grow outside of the normal spectrum. South Africans keep their money offshore so that they can access a different currency and thus keep their money save from the drop in ZAR. Living outside of South Africa means that you either tie your money to a low yielding bank account or you send it back to South Africa. Our Offshore solution means your money can grow in a First world Currency.

KiwiSaver is a voluntary savings scheme set up by the NZ government to help New Zealanders save for their retirement. You can choose to contribute 3%, 4% or 8% of your gross (before tax) wage or salary to your KiwiSaver account. Your employer has to contribute as well – at least 3% of your gross salary.
Along with KiwiSaver employer contributions, there’s an annual KiwiSaver government contribution. Your funds are invested on your behalf by the KiwiSaver provider of your choice.
If you don’t choose a provider Inland Revenue will assign you to one of the nine default KiwiSaver schemes.
Mortgages & Short term Insurance
There are many types of mortgages, each with its own interest rate, fees and flexibility. Each of these affect how much the loan costs and how long it will be before it’s paid off. An interest rate can be fixed, floating or a mix of both. And there are different repayment structures to choose from. It’s enough to make anyone’s head spin, so let’s break some of these terms down.
A house is often the biggest purchase of our lives, and a mortgage (also called a home loan) is typically our biggest financial commitment. Choosing the right home loan and repaying it quickly can save thousands of dollars – and free us up to achieve other goals faster! Speak to my team now to see for what you qualify!
