I’m an insurance broker specializing in personal insurance. I have a deep understanding of the insurers and the products in the marketplace that meet the needs of mid affluent and affluent clientele. I represent many reputable companies, such as AIG, ACE/CHUBB, Cincinnati, Encompass, Nationwide, PURE, Safeco and Travelers. I currently partner with several wealth management firms. My goal is to be an asset to a financial advisor, providing personal insurance expert analysis. My review and recommendations allow the financial advisor to know if the personal insurance of their clients is in good shape in terms of product and pricing. Also, if there are gaps in coverage, especially in regards to the umbrella limit and the insured value of the home.
