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.

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.
