Don't just protect your financial future, profit from it

Insurance.

The mere mention of the word is often enough to trigger a boredom-induced coma. But how about insurance where you get to share in the profits? That's a little more interesting.

The reality is that any responsible financial strategy includes good-quality life insurance, income protection, and total and permanent disability insurance. So why not consider obtaining these products from an organisation focused solely on benefiting its members?

PPS Mutual is a new provider in the Australian market that does exactly that. Profits get returned to the people purchasing its products as bonuses.

What's more, PPS Mutual products are only available to a select number of professions, including general practitioners, medical specialists, dentists and dental specialists. That means the products have been specifically tailored to meet the needs of professionals.

If PPS Mutual sounds familiar, it may be through a colleague who has worked in South Africa where they have enjoyed great success amongst the medical fraternity for over 75 years. PPS Mutual is South Africa's largest mutual financial services company, with assets in excess of $3 billion. In the last 10 years alone it has assigned $2.2 billion in profit-share to its members.

Medical Financial Planning is fortunate enough to be part of a small, select group of advisors that have been accredited by PPS Mutual to give advice on their products.

As with any financial decision it's important to look at each individual's specific circumstances to determine if a particular product is the right fit. It's also important to note that Medical Financial Planning will always consider a broad range of products to ensure our clients receive the most appropriate option for them.

For many doctors and dentists, the PPS Mutual products may offer a genuinely compelling alternative to the traditional insurance providers.

Once you've learnt more about PPS Mutual's products you might even find yourself dropping the word "insurance" into conversations with your colleagues. Just make sure you follow up quickly with the interesting part before they pass out...
