Money, She Talked – a conversation on insurance cover; are you covered?

In this month’s Money, She Talked episode we are joined by an expert financial planner and one of her clients in conversation about why serious illness insurance is crucial at any life stage.

In this episode of Money, She Talked, Sally Beresford, a financial planning partner from Tilney’s Manchester office, tackles the often-difficult conversations about what happens if you die or become seriously ill? We live in a world where anything can happen, so it is important to consider your situation if the worst-case scenarios do happen.

Sally is joined by Alex Lee, a client and friend, to discuss her story and why her and her husband Ronnie were so thankful to have had those tough conversations sooner rather than later.
