What is Personal Insurance Advice and who should get it?
Personal insurance advice is professional advice given by a financial advisor or consultant before you take out insurance. An experienced insurance adviser can advise you on how you can save money, accumulate wealth, and plan for your retirement. This service ensures that you and your family are protected against financial hardship in the future.
Insurance advice gives you all the information you need to make an informed decision before committing to an insurance policy. An insurance adviser will assess your personal circumstances and make recommendations on the types and amounts of insurance policies that would be most beneficial to you and your family.
While many Australian insurance providers give their clients insurance advice, they are limited by the insurance polices that they offer and are motivated by upsells, so you may end up with polices you don’t need. By entrusting a qualified insurance adviser, you can create a personalised insurance plan that suits your personal circumstances and financial needs.

- Our financial advisors place your best interests first

Life insurance ensures your family can cover funeral expenses and any outstanding debt, as well as funding future costs that secure the living costs of your family.Find out more

Duty of Disclosure
Before you enter into a contract of insurance with an insurer, you have a duty under the Insurance Contracts Act 1984 (Cth) to disclose to the insurer every matter that you know or could reasonably be expected to know, is relevant to the insurers decision whether to accept the risk of insurance and, if so, on what terms.
You have the same duty to disclose those matters to the insurer before you renew, extend, vary or reinstate a contract of insurance. Your duty, however, does not require disclosure of a matter that:
- That diminishes the risk to be undertaken by us
- That is of common knowledge
- That your insurer knows, or in the ordinary course of business, ought to know or
- As to which compliance with your duty is waived by the insurer
Your duty of disclosure continues until the contract of life insurance has been accepted and the policy has been issued by the insurer. Please make sure you answer all applicable questions completely and truthfully.
If you do not disclose to your insurer every matter that you know or could reasonably be expected to know, that would be relevant to the insurers decision whether to accept the risk of the insurance and if so, on what terms, your insurer may void the contract, or void your cover within three years of entering into it, provided that your insurer would not have entered into that contract or accepted cover for you had full disclosure been made.
Where the insurer is entitled to void a contract of life insurance, the insurer may elect not to void it but apply either of the following options:
- Reduce the sum that you would have been insured for in accordance with a formula that takes into account the premium that would have been payable if you had disclosed all relevant matters to the insurer; or
- Vary the contract in such a way as to place the insurer in a position that the insurer would have been had you disclosed all relevant matters or not made misrepresentation.
Where your contract is in respect of death cover, the insurer may only apply the first of the two options and we must do so within three years of you entering into the contract or us providing cover to you.Contact us
