The Great Credit Deal Comparison

Let’s face it – credit has a bad reputation. When most of us think of short-term loans and credit cards, we think of high interest rates, huge monthly repayments and being stuck in an endless cycle of debt. But the truth is, having a credit facility can actually be really useful in managing your finances – as long as you know which product best suits your circumstances, and how to manage any resulting debt properly.


Collecting Personal Debt From Friends & Family

You may think of debt collectors as heavyset men with crowbars but the reality is that there may come a time where you are required to collect debt too. Maybe you lent your sister some cash to cover the cost of a new set of brake pads for her car? Maybe a friend needed to buy an engagement ring and you loaned him the money so he could marry the girl of his dreams?

Luckily, the team at Hippo.co.za is here to help. We went out and interviewed some of the brightest minds in the industry to get explanations on some financial and economic terms you may not understand.


Career Guidance for People with Disabilities

Life is full of unforeseen challenges and complications, which is why having Life Insurance can help you care for your family's future. But, what if you are unable to afford your monthly premiums in the event of a sudden disability that forced you to quit your current job?

Travelling around the world provides you with the opportunity to experience new cultures, see incredible sights, meet new people and, most importantly, sample new food! Yes, when you travel abroad not only do you feed your mind, but your stomach gets a healthy dose of adventure too.
