Mortgage Protection Plus

A new roof over your head? Cover your home loan at the same time

A nest, a castle, a crash pad or a retreat? A new home represents something different to everyone. And for nearly all of us, it will become one of our most significant assets and a long term commitment. Even if you are refinancing or topping up your current mortgage, there’s a fair amount of stress, involved in taking on the responsibility. Plus we all know that, sometimes the unforeseen or unexpected can happen in our lives, and it is good to have some peace of mind.
