I am an insurance broker specializing in personal insurance. I understand the marketplace and know which insurers are writing policies that match the needs of mid affluent and affluent clientele. As the third largest brokerage worldwide, access to the number of insurers is nearly unlimited. Primarily the companies I represent, who are writing policies in California, are ACE/Chubb, Cincinnati, Nationwide, PURE, Safeco and Travelers. My goal is to be an asset to financial advisors, providing expert analysis of their clients’ personal insurance. My review and recommendations allow a financial advisor to know if the personal insurance of their clients is adequate, in terms of both product and pricing. In addition, knowing if there are gaps in coverage, especially in regards to the insured value of the home, valuables that need protecting, the peril of earthquake and a proper umbrella limit.

First Eagles is a value-oriented manager. With the merge of THL, we now offer private credit and other income-oriented vehicles. First Eagle’s Global Value team has adopted the value investment philosophy first developed by Benjamin Graham and later refined by Warren Buffett. The key principle is the purchase of shares in what we believe to be well-positioned, well-managed and well-capitalized companies when they are trading at a discount to the team’s estimate of their intrinsic value – a discount known as a “margin of safety.” The team’s focus is our bottom-up, fundamental, benchmark agnostic approach to equity investing.
