Private Life Insurance

Life insurance helps you to protect your family's finances after your death. The cover can be short-term or lifelong depending on your needs, and lets you rest easy knowing that your family will be looked after when you're gone.


Life insurance is a policy that pays a lump sum to your loved ones if you should die during the policy term. It allows your family to pay any outstanding bills, meet any mortgage payments, and maintain their standard of living.

The amount of cover you receive, whether it is a shared or individual policy, and the duration of your cover are all up to you. Howden Puri specialise in tailoring insurance to your exact needs, and our brokers will help you understand your options and choose the policy that best suits you.

We work with the best local Life insurance companies, as well as renowned international companies. 

Policy highlights

There are 2 main categories of Life insurance plans; term and permanent. Term offers you protection for a set period that you choose - whether that's one year or 30.
