Investec, life insurance and you


Life insurance is a policy taken out against the risk of you losing your life.

You pay a monthly premium up until your death, and your dependents receive a final payout for the amount of your insurance. Insurance is a little risk option with an ensured payout amount.

Life insurance also has extra funeral, dread disease and critical illness cover and some even include income protection, retrenchment protection and business overheads benefits.

  • The amount of money you have available to create a sizeable investment. You will need a lot of money to make it worth your while.
  • Your personal needs and dependents your investment must cover.
  • What are the risks involved? A high return investment might have a risk attached to it, and in the end, you might lose more money than you invested.
  • How long is the term of investment? You might pass away before the investment time is complete, and your dependents might not receive what they expected.
  • The interest rate. The current interest rate will determine the growth of your investment or savings.
  • Taxability. In South Africa a lot of investments are taxable, this could also decrease the payout amount.
  • Your health. If your health is declining a life policy with disability and critical illness cover might be a better option than an investment.
  • How would you pay? Monthly or the full amount?
