Affluent Market Opportunity

Large, growing, untapped, and loyal

The personal lines market for affluent and high net worth customers is as large as $30 billion in premium, and it's growing.

The funny thing is: up to 70 percent of high net worth clients remain with direct writers, who provide standard coverage that may be inadequate for their needs. A huge opportunity exists to reach and educate these clients about the advantages of working with an independent agent or broker.

The best news is that, once you find them, high net worth clients appreciate quality coverage and the advice you provide. They’re loyal. They understand value, not just price. And, of course, they have more to insure.  All of this means you have a better chance of adding value to your agency operation.
