Investments do rise and do fall in value and we strongly advise that professional advice is taken before investing your money
What is your money worth to you? Let me explain what I mean with a bit more detail.
I was sitting around a friend’s house with our respective families, laughing and joking, you get the scene…then the remark - ‘that dog costs me £50 pm in dog insurance’ and as my friend is mathematically minded, he tells me - 'that’s £600 p.a. and after 10 years £6000!'.
For many people their pet is an important member of the family, in fact 45% of households have a pet (statista.com) and they want to ‘share the love’ by making sure that they can provide for them if their pet became unwell.
Now, if you turn this love around 180 degrees and look at the pet’s owner and their family, it may surprise you to know that we often see that the main 'bread winner' whom all the family’s future and security is dependent upon… for food, education, home, holidays, retirement etc is largely either not insured or underinsured!
So why is the family pet so important? And the breadwinner not??
After all, if YOU had a money tree at the bottom of your garden YOU would protect it, wouldn’t you?
How would you cope if something happened to your ‘money tree’?
My message here is simple, if you love your family as much as your pet, ‘share the love’ and make sure that they have a future even if you are not around to share it.
SMAssociates are passionate in helping our clients to have a better future based on maximising their savings and investments, be it to pay for private education, retirement or other life events. However, we believe that most people also want to provide for loved ones if they ‘don’t make it!’.
Don’t underestimate what the price of a Starbucks coffee a day can make to your family’s future let alone your family Pet.
