An organized family office often focuses on protecting the wealth and assets for the next generation. Multi-generational family wealth and successful family-owned businesses naturally create unique risk management needs and family office insurance coverage needs. A family’s office insurance exposure includes the family’s office insurance risk, the family’s business insurance coverage and the family’s personal insurance exposure. They all inevitably become entangled. This vast amount of exposure and risk takes expertise and understanding to help the family create the best balance of exposure and insurance coverage for the family, business and staff.
The challenge most family offices find is that most large national insurance brokers might have some experience handling family offices, but they are either too expensive, too unresponsive, or might offer great premiums at the commercial insurance level but are ineffective for the personal insurance. They are typically not designed to handle both. Direct insurance agents are less capable of helping with the family office’s insurance because they do not underwrite certain exposures. They traditionally do not have access to markets to underwrite the breadth of insurance coverages like Independent Directorship Liability, Kidnap & Ransom Insurance, Family Office Fiduciary Liability Insurance, International Risk, Family Oil & Gas Risks, Family Umbrella limits (easily up to $100,000,000) and Programs, or Employee Dishonesty Insurance, to name just a few. Most independent insurance agents might be able to access the markets needed to cover the insurance risks for the family office, but they have no experience helping with family office insurance & risk management programs.
