Employing the affordability tools for life insurances: part 3
Giving every client the appropriate information and advice so that they make sensible financial decisions in relation to their life insurance package is paramount. Note: many of these strategies are not appropriately translatable to business (SME) advising. These would be the subject of a separate article.

Throughout this decision‐making, an adviser’s responsibility is to ensure that ad hoc, uninformed choices by the client of benefit design and/or coverage are avoided. All products have available tools for tweaking cost; and cost does not always equate directly with affordability.
