Dangerous Sports

Be adventurous, enjoy life, but don't risk your future

All life is a risk of some kind. Whenever you engage in any action where the outcome is uncertain, you are taking a risk.

You take a small risk when you drive to work or walk across the street. You take a risk whenever you venture into the unknown, where the possibilities and probabilities cannot be determined to an exact degree.

From the time you get up in the morning until you go to bed at night, and even when you are sleeping, you are facing risk to some degree.

The issue, then, is not whether or not you take risks. The issue is how skilful you are and, therefore, how confident you are in taking the risks in the knowledge that you and your dependants are financially secure during and after this activity.

With dangerous sports, you not only need to measure the risk of your pastime, you need to apply a similar degree of skill to your own personal financial protection and that of your dependants.

Holborn's advisers understand risk and are trained to help you strike a happy balance between acting impetuously, without thought, and not acting at all.

We believe you should be able to carry out a potentially dangerous sport or pastime in the full knowledge that it is you that takes the risk and not your family or your own future financial independence.

Common dangerous sports that we cover include: Aviation (not the passenger type), Hot air ballooning, motor sports, rock climbing, diving, parachuting, pot holing and caving.
