How can I HELP YOU
Whether you have existing insurance covers or not; it is important to review these if your circumstances have changed in regard to income levels, premiums increases, home ownership, family or employment changes.
I would love to give you the opportunity to sit downwith me to review your current insurance portfolio. This would be a total obligation free consultation to reach a solution that best meets your current and future needs.
I specialise in making policies affordable and sustainable over time through “levelled” options to lock in premium prices at today’s rates and to avoid the problem of escalating and non-sustainable premiums.

My Personalised Process
Before I formally met with you, I like to have some idea of what types of insurance cover you may have; eg life $500,000, trauma $100,000 etc and your date of birth.
I use this basic data to work out some projections of what your current premiums are likely to rise to over the next 10-15 or 20 years. This is a very useful discussion starter for when me meet as it will help focus your thinking around long term affordability & sustainability.
At this point we make an appointment to meet which could be at your home or workplace or other location that suits
At our Initial meeting, I gather some basic info about you and your family, your work and what you might see as your insurance risks. This allows me to fine tune my future recommendations and considerations.
I will take some time to go through my premium projections with you and explain in more detail what are the key differences between “stepped” and “levelled” premiums.
We will discuss possible insurance options and covers for you and the possible ways that they could be structured.
We set another time for me to return with a full statement of advice, including a range of quotes
As a broker, I can compare premium costs across a number of providers on your behalf. It is my job to be able to get you the best deal, that most suits your specific needs, both now and into the future.
My statement of advice will include my analysis of your situation and risks, as well as taking into account your thoughts. It will include a range of quoted prices, which we can use to fine-tune your thinking.
Once you have agreed to the types and structures of cover you need; we can proceed to application.

Ensuring Long-Term affordability
Matt James | Managing Director @ NCBIZ
Mark makes Life Insurance easy. I hadn’t truly appreciated the impact on my current cover as I aged. Mark clearly showed the exponential increase in premiums that would have meant reducing my cover to a level that would eventually become worthless, ie my cover would have to be reduced to match affordability. As an alternative, Mark showed the result of levelling my premium to fix my cover for life. A small cost increase now but then fixed for life. I now have excellent cover at a sustainable cost. Mark has saved me a small foutune by mitigating future premium increases.
Mark truly cares and takes the time to clearly understand his client’s needs- we are all unique and he ensures the right package is built to meet your own situation.
I cannot recomment Mark more highly.
