There is a bigger risk that they overlook. It is insuring against poverty. The chance of this event is 95%.
Here is a good way to insure against poverty:
a) Save 10% to 15% of your monthly salary
b) Invest in a low cost, diversified fund to earn a good return over the future
Many advisers do not recommend this approach. They introduce high cost products to consumers, as these products provide an attractive commission to the adviser. The consumer gets a poor return. They face a conflict of interest
I hope that more advisers will come forward to give the proper advice that are good for consumers. They can earn a fair rate of commission, but at least they know that they are acting fairly and honestly.
