Health insurance as important as investments

Medical, accident plans

"Health insurance is essential to help cover hospitalisation costs and medical expenses as we become more prone to illnesses as we age. A long-term care plan is advisable in the event that you are unable to take care of yourself due to sickness or disability. Finally, a personal accident plan will help

to protect you financially against any accident

and injuries."

MR MARC LANSONNEUR, DBS Bank managing director and head of
