I read an incredibly interesting article this weekend about longevity and wanted to share some really interesting facts that I pulled from the article, facts that you probably didn't know: By 2055 there will be more people over the age of 60 than people under the age of 15. Sub-Sahara Africa is the only place across the globe that still has high levels of child bearing. In the next 1...

piece written on the 17th September 2015 by  
Last week we investigated income protection and this week I need to tell you about some of the new products that are available to you. As you know, I've been working with Momentum to create some education around critical illness cover and income protection, and although the education side is important it's a bit pointless ...

INVESTIGATING INCOME PROTECTION


Investing & Money
piece written on the 10th September 2015 by  
Over the past several weeks I've been working with Momentum to create awareness about critical illness cover and income protection. I've even written about the difference between them and this week I would like to cover income protection a little bit more because it's something that I personally buy into. I've been told that there are two primary reasons why people don't protect their income, the first is that it'...

piece written on the 6th September 2015 by  
We've recently launched a new online tool at iMod Digital called Alert Alfred. The premise is really simple, you add your websites to Alert Alfred and if you website ever goes offline you receive an email notification so that you can address the problem. On top of that, when it's back up you'll receive another notification telling you as such. It's just a handy tool, which is free, that keeps you posted because when...

MARKET CHAOS!


Investing & Money
piece written on the 25th August 2015 by  
Yesterday was one of those days where you just saw RED! The markets really were scary and investors around the world were jumping up and down trying to figure out what's going on. It's always worrying when we see such weakness, but folding to the weakness is normally what gets us in trouble. Of course that's easier said than done, but reflect upon previous situations to try and find some kind of grounding. I think ri...

E-TOLLS AND INSURANCE?


Investing & Money
piece written on the 24th August 2015 by  
As a Capetonian, I haven't had to worry too much about E-Tolls. Sure, I've followed the news, I've heard people moaning and I've travelled to Gauteng a few times. I'm fortunate in that it doesn't affect me too much. But I must say, I was interested to read an article the other day on the topic of E-Tolls and insurance. I'm no expert at insurance, in fact, I'm far from that but I cover a lot of topics to do with fi...
