Introducing Herman Roodt of Mutual Financial Services.
After arriving in New Zealand during September 1998, Herman continued his career in the insurance industry. First with the Guardian, and since February 1999 as an Independent Broker in Auckland, as the need to provide a more comprehensive service to his clients necessitated this.
Herman originates from Tzaneen, South Africa, where he was involved in the banking industry as well as involved in viability studies of agricultural projects for the likes of the Development Bank of SA, and thereafter in the insurance industry with Old Mutual for close on 10 years. He was also production manager for many years.
Herman is experienced in the following fields:
- International Investments
- Life insurance
- Disability insurance
- Income Protection
- Endowment insurance
- Study provision
- Short Term insurance (Fire & General Insurance – domestic as well as commercial)
- Health Insurance
- Unit trusts
- Mortgage Finance
- Drawing up of Wills & Trusts
He has since extended this New Zealand wide. As Herman’s network is quite extensive, he can also assist with various non-insurance related activities.
Herman can now offer life insurance to people still in their country of origin on their way to New Zealand. This will give them the opportunity to replace their existing insurance before surrendering / cancelling theirs in their country of origin. This way they never need to be without cover!! (Certain criteria applies)
As mortality rates are much lower than elsewhere (e.g. Lower Aids occurrence) the premium for life cover is very favourable. The insurance industry is ever changing and is different to that which we were accustomed to, so it is important to revisit everyone’s portfolios and their Wills on a regular basis. Non – New Zealand Wills are not valid in New Zealand. Herman can help them to review this free of charge as an extension of his service.
Herman also represents 8 life insurance and various short term insurance (Fire & General) companies in New Zealand, and can be of assistance to advise you on your existing South African insurance policies as he is constantly in contact with his South African representatives.
