Many people lump “risk management” together with insurance, for good reason. Transferring risk to a third party through insurance can be a cost-effective, powerful tool. But insurance can also be oversold, costly, and ineffective. In fact, because insurance is almost always sold, people who feel like they are being sold often pull back, concerned about conflicts of interest and the intrinsic merits of the proposed insurance. Often these questions and concerns are not fully resolved, leaving lingering uncertainty. Sometimes these questions will save someone from a costly, unnecessary mistake. Other times they might deprive the person of what might be a good insurance solution for their situation.
Independent Advocates for Clients
As independent advocates for buyers, Mallery Financial takes an approach that is 180 degrees from conventional practice. Our approach is to advocate on behalf of clients and their best interests, emphasizing transparency, objective analysis, and client-centered recommendations. It sounds strange to have to say that, but in a world of commission-based salespeople trying to close deals at any cost, we believe you might find it refreshing to know that we are a firm you can turn to for objective, independent, non-sales-focused advice.
A Model for Every Need
You can choose the compensation arrangement – commission or fee – based on your needs and preferences.
Independent Insurance Brokering
Traditional insurance brokering is often appropriate for average needs for families and businesses with straightforward protection needs. Because we have no ties to any one company and no vested interest in “soft compensation” in the forms of perks for recommending one company over another, we are free to research the broad insurance marketplace to find the policy that fits your needs, cost-effectively.
Fee-Based Insurance Consulting
A fee-based approach may be more appropriate for high net worth families, businesses with complex needs, and the allied professionals who serve them (attorneys, CPAs, bankers, etc.). More information about our fee-based insurance consulting services can be found here.
