Help your clients grasp the importance of financial protection in just a few seconds.

Risk Reality Calculator

A revolutionary tool to change how your clients think about protection

With client apathy towards financial protection one of the main challenges for the protection industry, many advisers regardless of their experience, will probably have heard...

"I've got more important things to worry about... It won't happen to me... I don't want to think about it... It's confusing... I'll get round to it later... I don't see why I really need it".

But if your clients don't understand their risks, they'll struggle to understand the need for protection. They'll simply hope that it won't happen to them and move on.

With the LV= Risk Reality Calculator in just a few seconds 'risk' becomes very personal, immediate and real - swiftly helping people to appreciate the everyday risks they face in life. And as an adviser, you can use your client's risk results to explore the type and level of protection they really need.


What is the LV= Risk Reality Calculator?

and the probability of any of these life events happening before a chosen retirement age.
