Worried about your insurance plan?

Worried about your insurance plan? Then talk to AdviceFirst Auckland Financial advisor Ken Holmes.


There comes a time, usually in our late forties, when the newspaper becomes hard to read and we are forced to spend some money with the optometrist. The frames and lenses we buy are our insurance that we can continue to read.

In 1957 Ken first ignited his lifetime love of reading at Haumoana Primary School. His teachers Mrs. King and Miss Howard along with the headmaster Mr. Frank Bacon provided the wisdom and encouragement that established in him a passion that eventually lead him to staying awake all night in front of a large open fire reading the likes of Hemingway, Steinbeck and Upton Sinclair.

As Ken's reading has changed his love of books continues.

Now, however, he needs the insurance of a good pair of reading glasses to enjoy the content. In the same way, we and our families will need the security of insurance if we wish to continue to enjoy what we have taken for granted in our life.

When we were young we were infallible and foolproof and we were young and dumb enough to find a fix, a solution to almost any catastrophe. But as we get older our ability to find answers to ever-increasing difficulties in financial security, provide for an expanding family and to put in place a funded net to protect our hard-earned assets and abilities can sometimes seem beyond the capabilities we demonstrated in our youthful innocence.

This is why we have access to and should put in place an insurance portfolio. Sure, Ken has read his share of Hemingway and Steinbeck however he has also studied risk strategy and read the right stuff on how a person should plan for financial security. A wise person should talk with Ken and learn the secrets behind building a successful plan for them and their family – who knows you may both share a love for literature!
