Would you prefer to Estimate or Empower your life?

Walter Jopp, CEO – Zurich Middle East

Precaution and protection have become an inherent part of our daily existence as we try to cope with and rise above the effects of pandemic. But safety alone isn’t enough to thrive in the new world. We need to take the next steps to empower ourselves so we can fulfil the dreams and ambitions we had for ourselves and our loved ones before the crisis began - or attain our updated life goals. As we move into summer, there’s no better time to reflect on how protection can help you secure your future rather than speculate over it.

1WHAT PEACE OF MIND CAN DO

Life insurance brings satisfaction that your family will be looked after should you become seriously ill or pass away unexpectedly. The very notion that their life pursuits will be unaffected gives a great deal of mental and emotional comfort, empowering you to make better decisions, focus better on your plans and feel more confident about the future.

2LEVERAGE THE FINANCIAL FREEDOM

In a world of increasing economic uncertainty, financial protection can be liberating. It enables your family to maintain their current standard of living as well as pursue their personal aspirations freely. While the pandemic has augmented our consideration for financial security, we must not neglect its value across all times as health threats remain prevalent.

3STAND RESOLUTE ACROSS ALL TIMES

The pandemic has resulted in a need for preparedness without procrastination. It has taught us not to undermine potential risks we could face in life, be it health or financial, nor predict when they can occur. And this readiness is something that life insurance easily provides. The need to act early is emphasised by life insurers as well, as you stand to get more protection at a lower rate if you apply when you’re younger and in good health.

4GET CLOSER TO THE ONES YOU LOVE

Having confidence that you can secure their tomorrows, gives you the clarity and energy to understand and nurture the hopes of your beloved ones. Be it for the your child’s career choice, the education they desire or the retirement your spouse might want to have, life insurance gives you that boost as the primary earner that you can guide and support their wishes, fostering stronger relationships within the family.

5FOCUS ON YOU

In the midst of trying to protect your loved ones and their future needs, we often forget about ourselves. But with less to worry about, there’s more time to think about your personal pursuits and dreams. Protection relieves your mind so you can efficiently help your loved ones while insisting on looking after yourself. Be it a long-awaited indulgence, some much needed relaxation, or a longer-term plan, you can now comfortably focus on yourself and your life as well.
