Income Protection ensures that you and your loved ones are able to continue to earn an income if you are
unable to work due to an illness or injury.
A tailored policy is designed to continue to provide you with income while you are unable to work, and is flexible in that it can be for a short term while you recover, or up to the age of retirement should your illness or injury be permanent.
Essentially, Income Protection ensures that you are able to continue to pay the mortgage, monthly bills, and any other regular expenses, thus allowing you and your family to maintain the same or a similar standard of living.
Whole of life insurance is life insurance which is guaranteed to remain in force for the insured's entire
lifetime, provided the required premiums are paid.
Where a Term Life Policy only pays out up to a certain age threshold, or for a specific portion of your life, a Whole of Life policy will pay out a guaranteed cash lump sum when you die, at whatever age that may be.
Even if you are now retired and have no mortgage to pay off, you may still want to provide financial security to those left behind after your death. Whole of Life insurance is very often used to cover any potential inheritance tax exposure on behalf of the future beneficiaries of your estate. Ensuring that what you have left behind can be passed on in full without any worry of inheritance taxes.
Life Insurance helps to provide financial protection to your loved ones if you were to pass away unexpectedly or
become chronically ill. Your family would be paid a cash lump sum which they could use to cover expenses like
funeral costs, mortgage or vehicle repayments, schooling and university fees, and help to provide financial
stability and lifestyle security for your loved ones even after you have gone.
If you have a partner, children or any other dependents that rely on your income, then life insurance is the right choice for you. Many people choose to take out life cover at key life moments, like having a baby, getting married, buying your first house or nearing retirement.
A death in the family is always really tough, and what often makes these situations even harder, is when the family left behind cannot cope financially after the loss. Make the right choice, speak to one of our agents and insure your life today.
Private Health Insurance (PMI) provides policy holders with access to the highest-quality of private medical facilities,
treatments, and specialist doctors when you need them most. This ensures that you can receive the care you need immediately,
without the long waiting periods, and also helps fund the cost of early diagnosis tests and the treatment of acute conditions.
Edgemont offers PMI cover from most of the nations health insurers. We believe firmly in prevention being better than cure, so we are very focussed on Health & Wellness policies. This also puts an equal focus on encouraging better all round health, by helping you make healthier choices day to day.
In the event of your death or sudden critical illness, a Family Income Benefit policy pays out a monthly sum of money to beneficialries for
a selected period of time. This serves to remove any immediate short term financial burden caused, and ensures regular income continues.
This policy will allow bills to be paid and prevent unneccesary financial strain during an already difficult time for family and loved ones.
Statistics show that 1 in 3 people in the UK will been diagnosed with a critical illness between the ages of 40 and 70. The average
age of a claimant is 49 for men and only 46 for women.
This means that if you don’t have cover in place then you could be at risk financially should you ever be diagnosed with a serious illness. How would you and your family cope financially if you were suddenly diagnosed with a critical illness?
Critical Illness cover pays out a cash lump sum if you are diagnosed with a specified critical illness during the term of the policy. Such a pay-out would relieve you from the worry of how you would afford your monthly outgoings and support your family during a stressful time, allowing you to concentrate on what matters most – your health.
Most critical illness policies now come with children’s cover at no extra cost to you, which means that children up to the age of 21 are covered for 50% of the value of the policy up to a maximum value of £25 000, with some insurers also offer additional children’s cover of cronic conditions.
Are you involved in a business with multiple shareholders? If one of the shareholders were to pass away, could the business afford to
buy back those shares to pay out any beneficiaries of the deceased’s estate? If a shareholders was to pass away, would their beneficiaries
be inheriting their shares instead? What would this mean for your business?
Shareholder Protection provides both financial and contractual protection to the shareholders of a business in the event of a death or severe illness.
The Shareholder Protection insurance policy ensures that the life of each shareholder is insured to the value of their shares in the business.
The agreement ensures that in the event of a shareholder passing away or becoming chronically ill, their shares are bought out in full by the remaining shareholders, all without causing any additional financial distress to both the business and loved ones.
Group Life cover is purchased by companies to provide various benefits to their staff, such as Life Cover, Critical & Serious illness cover,
and Income Protection. The larger the group being insured, the more cost effective the policy, with large businesses often able to secure free
policy underwriting from the insurer as well.
HAVING AN EMPLOYEE BENEFITS PACKAGE IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO STAND OUT IN A CROWD.
THE DEATH OF A LOVED ONE CAN HAVE DEVASTATING EFFECTS, BOTH EMOTIONALLY AND FINANCIALLY.
Key Person Insurance pays a cash lump sum into the business to replace the loss of profits that could result if a director or
important key employee were to become critically ill or pass away.
The pay-out could be used as a monetary buffer while another staff member learns the crucial job role, or to recruit someone into the business who has a similar level of expertise and can help return the business's stability and profitability.
Group Health cover is purchased by companies to provide numerous immediate health and lifestyle benefits to their staff. Look after your staff
and they will look after your business. The larger the group being insured, the more cost effective the policy, with large businesses often
able to secure free policy underwriting from the insurer as well.
Some of the key advantages for staff & employers are:
• No Waiting Lists
• Fast Diagnostic Tests
• Choice of Hospital
• Drugs & Treatment
• Hospital Quality & Cleanliness
• Virtual GP Consultations
Relevant Life policies are a tax efficient way for the SME to have ‘Death-in-Service” policies in place for their staff.
The Company owns the policies taken out on each staff member, and it provides a sum assured amount that becomes payable to a trust
and the benefit of beneficiaries. This is only for Life cover, and does not cover Critical illness or Income Protection.
A Relevant Life policy can be more cost effective for businesses than other Group Cover packages, and is often used as an effective staff retention tool.
Liability or Business Loan Protection is a policy which ensures that if a company owner were to die or become critically ill, there would be enough
money paid to the business to enable a business loan or mortgage to be paid off. This insurance provides greater peace of mind, particularly
where a loan has been made on a personal guarantee and which could negatively impact your family’s inheritance if you passed away before
the loan was repaid.
This policy can also be used by the company to repay any Shareholders loans that may be in place, without putting any undue strain on the business and the remaining shareholders.

I am happy with the service and insights that Andrew and his team from Edgemont Financial Services have provided me. Our regular 'check-ins' provide me with confidence that our finances are in good hands and that our best interests are always top of mind.
Why I decided to switch to Edgemont? To be honest, I've had a few bumps in the road with my previous insurance brokers, however, that seems to be in the past ever since Andrew & Chantal took over my account. I have received nothing but the highest level of service from the entire team. They pride themselves on being clear, concise, knowledgeable, empathetic and transparent; from a customer's perspective, that is all I could ask for, and that is exactly what I got.
