About Us

Who we are...

Terry Looyer Insurance is a family owned business. Terry has been an insurance adviser since 1983, when he first became an insurance agent for the Government Life Office (later known as Tower Health & Life ) and subsequently he joined Norwich Union Life Insurance. Then in 1997 Terry became an independent life insurance adviser 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 while Terry is out seeing clients. Terry and Karen have two adult children, one little doggy called Bella who rules the house and an ageing cat called Prince.

What we do...

Let’s face it, none of us expect a serious illness or disability, or to die prematurely. But we know it’s a possibility. So if the unexpected did happen, how would your business, you and your family cope? Our philosophy is simple – as much as possible, prepare for the worst case scenario. When the unexpected happens, the bills are the last thing you or your family want to worry about. At TLI we work with you to develop plans in case of the unexpected. Plans that might include continued family income in case of illness, injury  or death, to allow the family to continue their lives as much as possible as planned. Plans that may extinguish debt when you are unable to, so that the family is not burned by them. Plans do not always require insurance, but when it does we will recommend the product and insurer we believe will do the best job. 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.

Our Process...

We will work with you to prepare a risk plan that is tailored to your situation. The 6 steps we take are –

We start by getting to know you. What are the circumstances of your life, business or farm? What is your financial position and what are your aspirations and goals for your financial future?

From this information, we identify the risks, quantify the financial impacts and work out the solutions you need to minimise your risk exposure.

Your risk plan will explain why and how we have assessed your risks the way we have. It will highlight any gaps we see in your current risk management approach and make recommendations on actions to be taken to minimise risk. It will enable you to understand the financial risks needed to be insured and which policies are best suited to your needs.

Together we’ll review our recommendations and agree on an action plan and responsibilities.

This step may involve co-ordinating with other professional advisers to ensure legal agreements, estate planning and structures are appropriate. It may also require us putting in place your insurance cover or managing changes to your existing cover.

Once all done we then meet again at a frequency you determine to review your risk plan, to ensure it remains relevant to you.
