Is life insurance an investment and how it works

At the start of your career, you are focused on getting the assets that support your status and lifestyle as an emerging professional – for example, buying a car or a property. While you may often overlook it, you are your most important asset at this point in your life.

When you take out life cover, you are protecting your long-term income earning potential and legacy. If you are a professional working at a reputable firm, you may be sufficiently covered by your employer. However, there are other elements you need to consider, including whether you are perhaps over insured.
