Our reach and connections - your advantage

When you've celebrated 20+ years in the Australian Financial Services market, have been awarded and recognised as a key person of influence to the industry, you get to meet the right people.

We continually look to develop better ways to help our clients, friends and supporters navigate through the complex system that is life insurance.

Whether that's through organising preferential treatment for speedier telephone interviews, expediting claims or simply cutting through red tape by continually advocating for our clients best interests; our experience proves connections matter.

An important issue that the average consumer never gets to know about

( If you like the detail this next section is for you; otherwise, feel free to skip this paragraph)

Did you know that financial advisers are only allowed to make recommendations for their clients from an approved list of product suppliers?  The bigger the list the wider the range of available suppliers, the more work is required to keep up with changes (and the more expensive the professional indemnity insurance premiums become for the adviser's business).

That's one of the main reasons why most advisors only work from a restricted products list. Advisers who are employed by a bank or industry super fund are equally restricted to only selling their own brand of products (but we're sure their marketing department would try and disagree).

  • The financial advisers behind unusualrisks.com.au have an unrestricted product list so our client can be confident they have access to every solution on the market without restriction.

Why is this important to understand? You want the best don't you?

Watch our Consumer Insights video by our senior adviser Drew Browne explaining the importance of having a financial adviser who has access to an open approved product list, and the ramifications of being stuck with an adviser who is restricted to a limited approved product list.

An interesting and unashamedly controversial look at one of the untalked about realities in financial advice - the key to knowing if your adviser is really able to give you the best financial advice.

Whatever your situation, we can help you

  • Single

    Age is no indicator of relationship status or financial responsibility.

    • You can be young and starting out or older and established; and both enjoying living the single life.
    • You might be single, single again, sometimes single, single with kids, single with pets or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to being single in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    And it's your single life, so live it your way.

  • Partnered

    Sharing life and love with someone can be twice as exciting.

    • You might be partnered, partnered with pets, officially de facto, officially married (yay!), splitting expenses but sharing life, or joining incomes and combining financial lives too.
    • You might be together but living apart, working towards a future with kids, thinking about fostering, adopting, IVF or surrogacy; or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to being partnered in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    There's no right or wrong way to live a purposeful life, just what works for you both.

  • Parenting

    For today's LBGTI families, there are no accidental families.

    • You might be parenting and single with kids, parenting solo with kids, parenting and partnered with kids, (yours, theirs and ours), dual parents with kids, co-parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, or even adoptive parents of kids with additional needs (just beautiful!).
    • You might be a lesbian co-parenting couple or super involved Guncles or Aunties. You might not even identify with the broader LGBTI community but find yourself a parent in a same-sex relationship, or perhaps something a little more complicated.

    When it comes to parenting in the LGBTI community, there's really no such thing as average.

    However you're doing it, Love makes a family.
