Protection is essential. It may not be the most exciting of subjects but it answers the call to all that we hold dear, and that is to protect what matters most in times of high emotion and potential financial risk. Being in good health and having the ability to earn a living are arguably two of the most precious asset we will ever come by. But this cannot be taken for granted, it should be respected and adequately protected.
Harry Robinson Wealth Management deal in two main forms of life assurance; Term Assurance and Critial Illness Cover.
Life assurance provides a lump sum payment in the event of death and comes in two basic forms: term assurance and whole of life assurance.
Term assurance provides coverage for a predefined lenght of time, whereas whole of life assurance will provide a lump sum payment whenever death occurs. Both forms of protection require that the premiums be kept up to date throughout the ongoing term of the policy.
Critical Illness Cover
Critical illness cover, also known as critical illness insurance, is a long-term insurance policy which covers serious illnesses listed within a policy. If you get one of these illnesses, a critical illness policy will pay out a tax-free, one-off payment. This can help pay for your mortgage, rent, debts, or alterations to your home, such as wheelchair access, should you need it.
Critical illness insurance will pay out if you get one of the specific medical conditions or injuries listed in the policy.
But be aware that not all conditions are covered and policy will also state how serious the condition must be.
Examples of critical illnesses that might be covered include:
It only pays out once and then the policy ends.
Some policies will make a smaller payment for less severe conditions, or if one of your children has one of the specified conditions.
Having the physical ability to simply go to work and earn a living is by far one of the most valuable assets an individual or family has in life. Failure to protect this precious skill could potentially see a family’s lifestyle pause overnight.
This is where Income protection insurance (sometimes known as permanent health insurance) comes in. Described as a long-term insurance policy designed to help you if you can't work because you're ill or injured. It ensures you continue to receive a regular income until you retire or are able to return to work giving you and your family that essential coverage to maintain your current lifestyle should the unexpected happen.
Business life insurance can support your business financially if something happens to your staff, your partners or more importantly you. Setting up a policy is about making sure your company is prepared – which is the best any business can do. And just as there are lots of different types of life insurance, there are various types of business life insurance you should consider. Here are five key types of cover to think about;
Key Person Insurance
This is aimed at protecting your company against losing the one person it simply couldn’t be without. Think about how your business would function without your key performer if they became ill and couldn’t work for some considerable time. How would you cope? Key person insurance might be the answer.
Relevent Life Cover
If you’re a small business with fewer than five employees, life cover can offer an alternative to group life insurance schemes and can be a very tax efficient way of offering death in service benefits – which can give staff and their families’ real value and peace of mind. It can be a valuable addition, or a starting point, for any benefits package while helping to retain your best people or recruit new talent.
Business Protection Insurance
Business protection insurance, sometimes called business loan protection, can cover various types of debt – from director’s loans, commercial loans and mortgages, to venture capital loans, overdrafts, credit cards and even personal guarantees. Unlike most life insurance pay-outs, when it comes to business protection insurance a claim can be paid to a business instead of a family member.
If you run your business with a partner or have shareholders, what would happen if you suddenly lost them? When someone passes away, their assets usually go to their dependants – that would include any shares in your business. And what the dependants want may not be what your business needs. For example, they may prefer to receive a lump sum, but you may not have the capital to honour this. That could mean you have to sell on shares, which could reduce your control of the business.
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up payments
on your mortgage. The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation
can change at any time. The value of any tax reliefs depends on individual circumstances.
There's so much more to financial protection than simply arranging a life insurance policy – you should think carefully about the preservation of your wealth to allow for smooth handover of any assets to future generations.
Failure to create an adequate wealth and estate planning may see your wealth become susceptible to other parties which could potentially erode its value and core use. However this doesn't have to be the case. As a Partner Practice of St. James's Place Wealth Management, Harry Robinson Wealth Management can assist you with a personalised wealth strategy that can help you pass on any estate benefits to your loved ones as originally intended.

Making a Gift to your family whilst you’re alive can be a cost effective strategy to reduce the value of your estate for Inheritance Tax purposes that benefit your loved ones immediately.
