Personal Insurance Concierge for Executive Teams

In the event of an accident, lawsuit, or other personal damage, an uncovered risk could not only cause significant financial loss, but also create an enormous distraction from one’s work and personal life.

Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and risk management, teams with its clients to define, design, and deliver innovative personal insurance solutions that help them protect their future and thrive. Through Marsh’s Private Client Services, clients now have access to the Personal Insurance Concierge program created specifically for the executive team who need a resource to help address their unique personal insurance needs. This concierge-style service helps analyze, transfer, and manage risks relating to your personal exposures—e.g., homes, automobiles, valuables, fine art, and yachts—all through a single point of contact.

Through a comprehensive consultation and review process, a Marsh Personal Risk Advisor helps colleagues identify the risks you face in your personal lives and creates a tailored insurance program to help protect you in the event of a loss. The Advisor is available to the executive team throughout the year to help keep your insurance program in tune with your needs.

Additionally, not only do participants receive the benefit of having access to coverage from an insurance carrier that specializes in the needs associated with an affluent lifestyle and high-value protection that is often required, you also have the benefit of working with Marsh, an insurance broker who acts as your advocate through the entire process—from review to marketing to placement to claims.

Working with Marsh as a resource to simplify your life and minimize your time commitment to managing your personal risk program is an important step that will help you enjoy your lifestyle without distraction.

Case Study

Situation

The client owns two residences; three automobiles; jewellery and other valuables; employs a domestic housekeeper; and has a group umbrella policy. One of the residences is a lake house, which their youth group uses along with their jet ski.

Analysis

During the initial review, Marsh identified a number of concerns with the client’s insurance coverage, including:

  • Gaps in coverage of more than $500,000.
  • Insufficient jewellery coverage.

Outcome

Marsh addressed these issues in the following ways:

  • Developed a comprehensive insurance program that removed the gaps in liability coverage, eliminating potentially large out-of-pocket expenses and meeting the umbrella liability requirements.
  • Arranged a valuable articles insurance policy to protect the jewellery and take advantage of a package discount.
  • Worked with the client’s attorney to create a liability waiver for use of the jet ski by the youth group.
