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

Published: 09 Jun 2021 Updated: 13 Jun 2022

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.
