About the Program
As wealth changes, insurance protection needs to change with it.  However, having an insurance strategy as part of a wealth management portfolio is often overlooked.  This course provides a high level overview of personal insurance and its unique risks for the affluent; it also examines the importance of an insurance audit and how preparing this analysis strengthens the relationship between clients and their advisors.  A special highlight on fiduciary responsibilities for trustees is included, along with specific information on vacant properties.
