What Life & Health insurance meant for Rachel and Brian Leadley

Rachel and Brian Leadley have spent 30 years growing in the Canterbury region and know the strength of their operation is Brian’s ability to get on and get things done. So in the process of considering Life & Health cover they questioned ‘What would happen if Brian couldn’t operate a tool or work full time?’.

More than a decade later when Brian injured his hand, they were able to focus on recovery and get in people to get the job done, thanks to FMG helping them get the right Life & Health insurance in place.

Why Brian and Rachel got their Life & Health insurance through FMG

Life on the Leadley's farm is busy, with the operation largely owner-operated with one full time employee and bringing in the occasional contractor as needed.

Brian says while ACC provides a level of protection, the cover has its limits. If there was an accident, he felt they had income streams and work that needed to be covered over and above what ACC provided. This is why the Leadley’s took out Life & Health cover.

The Leadley's have been FMG clients for many years, so getting their Life & Health insurance through us also meant they knew they were talking with advisers who understood their farm, family and needs when considering what cover was right for them.

The cover that kicked in*

Tick Icon Rural key person cover

Provides an income if a key person on the farm cannot work due to an injury or illness. This income can be used to replace that person which allows the farm to keep operating.
