Old Mutual has a portfolio of personal insurance and risk cover products that includes short-term insurance, education planning, retirement planning, medical cover, investment and savings, estate planning, life cover, and various types of risk cover, like dread disease, retrenchment and disability cover. We`ll concentrate on the insurance side of these for the purposes of this review.

The Allsure insurance package is the cornerstone of the company`s short-term insurance. It`s truly a comprehensive personal insurance offering, containing all the different types of cover that you need - and you also have the option of paying a monthly or a yearly premium. The advantage of the latter is that it allows you to take advantage of discounted premiums. Extended cover and optional cover add-ons are available in addition to the core package. There are also business and corporate insurance products available.

The core package of Allsure is cover for the following: buildings and household contents, personal accident and all-risk cover, motor vehicle cover (including motorcycles, caravans, trailers and pleasure vehicles), personal computer cover, legal costs cover and bereavement. You have the option of taking General All Risk cover or Specified All Risk Cover (where you can specify certain valuable items for insurance and replacement purposes).

Life cover is offered in the form of cover against financial loss that is caused by disablity or death - so it`s a combination lifestyle protection product. There are two main packages on offer - the Life Plan Range, that includes the options of taking life only cover, life and disability cover, or accidental death and disability cover. Then there`s a new product being advertised: Greenlight Life Cover. This is a standard disability and life financial protection plan.

On the business insurance side there are packages that allow you to take risk cover against the loss or incapacity of important people in a business, as well as general business insurance and insurance for specific professionals (such as medical and retail).

For corporate insurance purposes the company will administer retirement funds and group life insurance.

You can`t go wrong when you choose this stalwart of the insurance industry. It`s solid, dependable and reliable.
