As a discerning individual, you understand the importance of safeguarding your home and family’s future. One critical aspect of this protection is choosing the right mortgage insurance. While your bank might offer a convenient insurance package along with your mortgage, it’s essential to understand why this might not be the most advantageous choice for you. This is where the expertise of a Financial Planner becomes invaluable.

The Shortcomings of Bank-Sold Mortgage Insurance

Superficial Assessment: Banks often use a limited set of questions to evaluate your eligibility for mortgage insurance, leading to potential issues with claim denials. This approach lacks the depth of understanding that a financial planner can provide about your unique health and financial situation.

Diminishing Returns: The coverage from bank-sold policies typically decreases as your mortgage balance lowers, but your premiums don’t. Essentially, you end up paying more for less coverage over time.

Restricted Payout Use: With bank-sold policies, any payout goes directly to the bank, solely for mortgage repayment. This lack of flexibility can be a significant constraint in your broader financial planning.

The Value of a Financial Planner's Insight

Comprehensive Evaluation: At Newton Financial, we conduct a thorough assessment of your needs, considering your overall financial health, family obligations, and future goals. This ensures that the insurance you choose aligns perfectly with your long-term financial strategy.

Tailored Insurance Solutions: We explore insurance options beyond what banks offer, including policies from various insurance companies that provide consistent coverage levels, flexibility in fund usage, and potentially more favorable terms.

Cost-Effective Options: While the cost of bank-sold and independent insurance policies can be similar, our financial planners help you find the most cost-effective solution with the best coverage, ensuring that your investment in insurance is optimized for your specific situation.


Choosing the right mortgage insurance is a decision that should not be taken lightly. At Newton Financial, we are committed to guiding you through this process, ensuring that you make an informed decision that protects your home and family while aligning with your overall financial plan.

Let us help you navigate the complexities of mortgage insurance and secure the coverage that best suits your life’s journey.
