Loan and mortgage

Hanging on to your most valuable assets

What would you do if redundancy, illness or injury made it impossible to meet loan repayments? What would happen if you died? In the worst case scenario, you or your family might have to sell something – like the house - to meet loan commitments.

If you have a mortgage, personal loan or credit card, it’s easy to protect your ability to repay.

There are many types of insurance that can help. Some pay a lump sum or a monthly amount that you can use for any purpose; others are strictly to cover loan repayments.
