The Missing Piece of Financial Planning – Property and Casualty™

Chubb’s recent research found that only 28% of advisors address their clients’ P&C insurance needs, even though 77% of successful individuals want their advisors to provide that support and nearly 40% would consider switching to an advisor who provided it.

Why would property and casualty exposures relate to comprehensive wealth management and estate planning? What good is perfect asset allocation, correctly structured life insurance and even a plan for “asset protection”, if an uncovered property or liability claim can wipe out several million dollars of assets? As clients gain wealth, their risks get more complex and they could easily outgrow their coverage or their broker.

Having Chubb, AIG, PURE or another top insurance company is the start of their protection, but it is not enough for the highly successful family. Custom designed programs are needed to protect the complex needs that success and wealth bring.

Fee-Only Property and Casualty Risk Management provides independent, unbiased, non-commission based analysis. Followed up by guidance, mitigation and assistance in implementation of recommendations to make sure the proper coverage is in effect. We can work with your clients current broker so they can continue their relationship.

Why a Lifestyle and Risk Analysis is critical

  1. Clients think, “I have Chubb, AIG, PURE; I have the best coverage available.” A standard policy from any of these companies generally will not properly protect a sophisticated client’s needs.
  2. Client’s needs and availability of coverage change over time. Without a regular, comprehensive analysis, coverage gaps develop.
  3. Since most clients have never had such a review, it proves your firm embraces a comprehensive concern for their financial well-being without someone selling coverage.
