Australian Global Life Solutions (AGLS)

Founded in 2015, Australian Global Life Solutions is a specialist personal risk business and we provide informed, insightful and tailored risk insurance advice that's designed to protect your assets and income. We work on the principle that we need to take the time to understand what really matters to our clients in order to provide advice that's relevant and tailored to each individual.

We understand the value of relationships and our commitment is that we'll continue to be here to advise you as your life journey unfolds. From flying solo to marriage, kids and mortgage; in sickness and in health we'll help you to protect what's important to you. And if you need to make a claim, we'll help you through that process and deal with the insurance companies on your behalf.

Before we start thinking about what risk management strategies could be right for you, we'll talk to you about.

  • Your current situation - things like your income, debt, expenses, obligations and family.
  • Your ideals - we'll talk about what's important to you, and we'll ask a lot of "what if?" questions.

We specialise just in personal risk products so we don't get distracted with other, more general forms of insurance. Even if you already have cover it costs nothing to get an alternative quote - one that may cost you less and be better suited to your situation.
