Our advice helps our clients protect their most important assets
We are a financial services business, specialising in life and disability insurances for individuals, families and business owners. As a division of Fitzpatrick and Co. Insurance Brokers, we have the systems and support of a large broker, paired with the personal approach of a boutique firm.
Our four advisers have over 80 years combined experience in financial services and work alongside support staff to ensure every client is properly looked after. Two of our advisers are also qualified Financial Planners who can provide advice in the areas of superannuation, investments, and retirement planning.
Integrity, sincerity and care are the cornerstone of our business and are incorporated into every element of our operations.
Whether it’s income protection or life and total and permanent disability insurances, we will work closely with you and our insurance partnersto ensure you receive the best advice for your situation.
We can facilitate extensive key person insurances and business succession planning processes to ensure your business assets and interests remain protected.
Our team can assist with advice on Life, Total & Permanent Disability, Trauma/Critical Illness and Income Protection insurance policies. We will tailor these to protect your business, family or yourself, working through the range of different policies from our insurance partners to find the one best suited to your conditions. Clear communication is paramount, so we always make sure our suggestions come in easy to understand terms.
Policy ownership structures are very important to maximise tax deductibility, avoid any unnecessary tax consequences upon claim payment and to ensure that in the event of a claim, the right money goes to the right people at the right time. Should you need to make a claim, we can manage the entire process, so you don’t have to deal directly with the insurer.
