Stephen Wescombe

Financial Adviser

On the 18th of April 2009 Marty broke his leg very badly and was unable to return to full time work until January 2011. Without the key person benefit insurance policy we are quite sure we would have lost our home as we would not have been able to live and pay the mortgage. We are incredibly glad that we got great advice and guidance from Stephen about this cover, and that it was there when we needed it most.
