Sponsored by Naked - The new way to insure your stuff

Your ability to earn an income is possibly one of your most valuable assets. Whether you're self-employed or a full-time employee, you need to be able to work in order to earn money, to survive. Not being able to earn money will affect you and your family in a terrible way.

My guest in this episode is Monre Steyn, CFP and Risk & Investment Strategist. Monre is the founder of Quadrant Wealth, an independent wealth management firm.

Monre sheds some light on this rather complex kind of insurance, and as he mentions, it really is best to chat to a professional to understand what you need, and what the options are. Also, different insurers cover illnesses differently and even categorise things independently. Thus, comparing insurance providers, products, and options, is vital!
