Life Insurance

Your family will thank you for thinking of them first.

Why should you consider life insurance?

Your ability to protect your loved ones outlives you – and now is a great time (because of the state of the market) to get financial support set up without breaking the bank.

There are some great deals to be had in the Life Insurance sector of the UAE. In a sector due for 10% growth by 2019, bargains are there to be had from vendors who have an excellent range of products with whole of life add ons.

A great advantage of life insurance is that it can pay out to your family before any Probate process is finished – which means family members won’t go without whilst they wait to access what you’ve left them in your Will (and maybe Trusts).

Watch out, though! Life insurance must be set up correctly in accordance with your other legal arrangements for your estate in order for it to provide timely benefits. So speak to one of our advisers today and see how careful planning can robustly provide for your family after you’re gone without impacting on your present needs.

Don't just take our word for it

I have to admit I was a little …

“I have to admit I was a little skeptical when someone called me out of the blue to offer these services. However, from my very first conversation with Ian Leigh he put my mind at rest. The process was quite long because of pension regulations in the UK, but I understood that this would be the case as it was explained to me that this would probably happen. My husband and I met with Ian in our home and reviewed our options, there was absolutely no hard sell. I was an IFA in the UK so had a good understanding of our pensions and Ian was able to provide advice and help on overseas pension options. Would I recommend Ian and Holborn Assets to my friends, most definitely. Thanks for everything you have done to help us in this complicated world of pensions your service was excellent.”

Extremely happy and satisfied.

“From the first contact, we were treated with respect and curtesy. Our contact, Ian Leigh had a wealth of knowledge and walked is through everything in detail and in layman' terms. Ian was fast at responding to our queries and ensured things were chased up with his other colleagues at the same speed. We are glad that our contact was Ian and we would recommend both him and the Company to anyone else.”
