We’re almost there…fingers crossed !!!

Hopefully we’re in the last week of the full lockdown now…  fingers crossed.

Some of you will return to work soon and some of you still have uncertainty over your jobs.

It’s important to remind you that I am here to help, which is why I’m reaching out to you.

All the major insurers have announced some type of premium holiday, if you need it.

Just email me back and we can talk through your options.

Sometimes just hearing a reassuring voice can be helpful, even if your circumstances aren’t clear yet.

I’d love to hear from you please. So, send me an email to say you’re okay, or you’d like to chat.

On the good news side of things…

…in the first 2 weeks of lockdown I spent most of my time reassuring people that ‘all was not lost’ with their KiwiSavers.  Quite a few even realised this was a good time to invest more.

This advice was proven correct, because since the funds hit bottom on 23rd March most Growth type funds have rebounded around 17% in just 3 weeks!!!

So remember: your KiwiSaver funds go up and down in value ALL the time and that this is actually a good thing due to ‘Dollar Cost Averaging’ and my petrol prices analogy!

Best wishes, and see you on the other side of this

In 1985, after 7 years in the banking industry in NZ & London, Mike Bennett joined the Life Insurance Industry as an adviser. In 2001 he started “Acorn Insurance & Investment Ltd” with the key principle; “to satisfy the insurance and investment needs of New Zealanders with the best products and service possible”. To achieve the guiding principle of “best products and service” the “Acorn” uses various industry research tools to identify the best products and prices to meet our client’s needs. Acorn has agencies with most of New Zealand’s major insurance companies which means we are free to use whichever products best meet our client’s needs. Believing that if we get it right for our clients we will achieve win-win solutions. We also recognise that nearly all insurance solutions are a compromise between the benefits you’d like to have versus the premiums you’re prepared to pay – with this in mind we WON’T be trying to sell you more insurance than you need or want !!
