TLI stands for Terry Looyer Insurance. Terry has been an insurance adviser since 1983. He first joined the Government Life Office (later known as Tower Health & Life ) as an insurance agent and then later joined Norwich Union Life Insurance. In 1997 Terry became an independent life insurance broker and hasn't looked back since.

Prior to entering the insurance industry, Terry's expertise was in electronics and computers, an area he still has a keen interest in. His other interests include skiing and flying, although these days he spends more time flying models than the real ones. Terry is married to Karen who helps with the back office work and often answers the phone. They have two adult children, one little doggy called Molly and an ageing cat called Griffin.



Our philosophy is simple - as much as possible, prepare for the worst scenario. When the unexpected happens, be it serious disability, a long-term illness or untimely death, the bills are the last thing you want to worry about. It is our goal to make sure that you and your family are looked after financially. We use quality products to maximise the success of claims and to achieve or surpass expected outcomes when things go wrong.

Our service offers complete personalised client care - from first meeting, tailoring your plan, implementing your plan to ongoing support and reviews. And should the unexpected happen, we'll be there to.
