INSURANCE PARTNER

Did you know most triathletes are either not insured or under-insured for crashes on the bike when racing, training or commuting, despite thinking otherwise? Most Super Funds and Personal Insurance companies won’t take the risk of insuring participants that use a bike in races or anything that may even resemble them. When you need it most, don’t find yourself under-insured or not insured at all. KOM Financial Advice was formed to address the unique Income Protection (IP) and Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) issues cyclists and triathletes face. We’re here to help!
