A BOUTIQUE INSURANCE ADVISORY FIRM SINCE 1975
Specializing in Income Protection, Asset Preservation, and Wealth Transfer Solutions for the Affluent
WHAT WE DO
While providing sophisticated life insurance solutions has been our specialty for over four decades, we have continuously evolved in order to meet the needs of our clients and advisor partners.
In more recent years, our guidance has been sought to assist with solving other personal and business insurance-related issues. These requests have, in turn, prompted our expansion into other areas of risk management.
Today, we utilize our proprietary methods and analytics to help clients protect their income, preserve their assets, and transfer their wealth.
This is accomplished through the evaluation, structuring, acquisition, and management of insurance portfolios.
HOW WE DO IT
Contrary to popular belief, insurance policies are not commodities. In fact, companies issue policies with varying contract language, cost structures, and actuarial assumptions. These elements allow us to creatively design the insurance portfolio in a cost-efficient manner.
Our unique process stems from an analysts' perspective, is devoid of salesmanship, and adds value by employing four technical methods:
Risk Transfer – Shifting risk from client to carrier by capitalizing on product inconsistencies. Increased risk taken on by the carrier translates into better results for the client.
Arbitrage – Evolving industry dynamics create exploitable opportunities. Locating, and executing upon, these aberrant conditions is critical to success.
Synthetics – Combinations of policy characteristics can deliver atypical results. These bespoke configurations greatly enhance policy efficiency.
Modeling – Reverse-engineering pricing algorithms and internal policy components exposes potential performance enhancements. This greatly assists with the decision-making process.
Coupled with our proprietary analytics, these methods enable us to uncover product anomalies, mispricings, and discrepant underwriting - all of which enhance our clients' insurance holdings.
While not every solution requires the same deep dive, we are equipped to deliver the in-depth analysis and fact-based recommendations necessary to handle the most complex situations. It is this ability to peel the layers back one by one, to support our assertions, that sets our approach apart from others.
WHO WE ARE
The concept of simultaneously representing both client and carrier is a myth. Independent thought, and analysis, is essential to guiding clients through the decision-making process.
Since our founding, we have been a family owned and operated firm. We are not, nor have we ever been, beholden to any other organization. To us, the insurance companies act merely as a source of supply.
Our Principals possess more than 60 years of combined experience serving the needs of affluent clients and their advisors.
Aside from client management and administrative functions, we have also formed a consultative brain trust consisting of accomplished professionals in the actuarial, financial, scientific, medical, legal, and accounting fields. We collaborate with this talent pool to offer further insights, and ancillary services, to our clients.
In return, we provide our own thoughts on issues faced by these professionals. This free exchange of ideas keeps us on the cutting edge.
