What Life & Health insurance means for Matt and Rob Duytshoff

Brothers Matt and Rob Duytshoff have created an innovative business over the last four years trimming trees up to a height of 30 metres. When planning for their future they understood with the help of FMG, that in their line of work, if they become ill or injured they’d need Life & Health cover to keep the business going and look after their young families.


Why Matt and Rob got their Life & Health insurance through FMG

When starting their business, the brothers from Tauranga rang around a few insurance companies but FMG was the only insurer who actually understood what a shelter trimmer was, let alone the risks associated with using that kind of machinery.

Matt and Rob took out their business insurance with FMG first and then one of our trained Life & Health advisers Liz gave them a call to talk about making sure they had thought about insuring their most valuable business asset - them.

Both Matt and Rob have young families so if one were to become seriously ill or injured, or even die, the brothers thought it was important to make sure there was cover in place to keep the business running, but also make sure their families were looked after as well.

The cover they've put in place*

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.

Tick Icon Life insurance

If you were to die, your business responsibilities and debt still need to be managed. Life insurance can help your loved one manage things if you're gone, or if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness and given 12 months or less to live.
