SECURITAS HEALTH “One of the best aspects of health care reform is it starts to emphasize prevention.” These are the words of Anne Wojcicki, CEO and co-founder of the personal genomics company, 23andMe. In past years, we have seen the power of having a healthy workforce through proactive and preventative health measures. Securitas Health Consultants will ensure that members make adequate financial provision for themselves and their financial dependents to cover day-to-day medical expenses and hospitalisation due to injuries or illness. We strive to encourage clients to focus on preventative health measures for sustained vitality and longevity. Our Guiding Principles: - Better Health Choose a medical aid designed with you in mind, backed by years of experience and centred on promoting better health for you and your family. - Better Experience Find simple tools and resources that make it easier to choose a plan, manage your benefits and understand your coverage so you and your family can get the care you need to live healthier and happier. - Better Cost Control Choose from a wide range of medical aid option prices and take advantage of helpful cost-estimating tools to guide you in finding coverage and care that fits your financial picture.

SECURITAS TRUSTS & ESTATES Your last will and testament is one of your most valuable documents. It gives you the ability to distribute your estate, choose your heirs, appoint guardianship, and give your most precious belongings to your chosen people. But itâ€™s important to keep in mind that a last will is a part of an estate plan, not an entire estate plan. Securitas Trusts and Estates are experts at assisting you to plan your estate for the future of your loved ones after you have passed away. We will assist in setting up your last will and testament, as well as prepare a comprehensive estate plan tailored to your specific situation. As the executor of the deceased estate, we take the hands of your loved ones after your passing and allow them to work through their loss while we ensure that the estate is seamlessly finalised. Our services include: Assisting with the drafting of your last will and testament Creating a comprehensive estate and succession plan Acting as executors of your deceased estate

SECURITAS EMPLOYEE BENEFITS Once you have great employees on board, how do you keep them from jumping ship? One way is by offering a good benefits package. Many small-business owners mistakenly believe they cannot afford to offer benefits. But while going without benefits may boost your bottom line in the short run, that penny-wise philosophy could strangle your businessâ€™s chances for long-term prosperity. Securitas Employee Benefits provides professional consulting services to employers and their employees to ensure that they enjoy the best group risk advice and service the industry has to offer. We can assist in providing: - Group Death Benefits for both your employees and their spouses - Group Disability Benefits for both your employees and their spouses - Group Funeral Cover - Group Income Protectors - Group Retirement Benefits

TRUSTS & ESTATES TESTIMONIAL Finalising the estate of a loved one is one of the most difficult things I ever had to do. From the start Alta made this easy with her great empathy.

Thanks Alta for being so professional and yet caring through the process! Mrs. Veronica Duncan
