Money Marketing Wired – Planning without Protection

WIRED15_003_MM_HOMEPAGE IMAGE_1920x1080 SeptUpdate

MM Wired: Thursday 24 September, 10am.

The protection market has a big problem – consumers and businesses think they do not need cover. But is the bigger issue the number of advisers who believe protection is not worth selling?

Topics to discuss:

  • Are advisers snobbish about selling protection? If so, how can these attitudes be turned around?
  • Can advisers carry out financial planning effectively without putting protection in place?
    Investment-linked protection is the bridge between investments and protection – but why is there so little take-up?
  • Introducing protection to business planning – what are the challenges and how could these be overcome? How can advisers better communicate the risks of going without cover to business owners?
