Chartis Expands Personal Security Services for High Net Worth Clients
December 8, 2009
Chartis is offering expanded personal security services from its Private Client Group. The insurer has introduced two complimentary resources, emergency preparedness services and access to Insite Security, to supplement Private Client Group’s property and liability insurance offerings for high net worth individuals and families.
The new offerings, which are in addition to existing risk management services designed to reduce the likelihood and severity of property damage, as well as maximize safety, are designed for policyholders with complex exposures resulting from worldwide travel; private home staff; multiple residences; yacht ownership; or extensive collections of art, jewelry or cars.
Emergency preparedness services help reduce threats to family safety, security and personal wealth through activities such as evacuation and communication planning, home security assessments, personal liability assessments, and crisis management. Consultations, either by phone or in person, are conducted by Private Client Group’s specialists who have backgrounds in personal and corporate security. The consultations can cover lifestyle risks, such as how often one travels, who has access to the home and the safety of children away at school; strategies to handle an incidental house fire or community-wide emergency; and personalized emergency action plan development.
Policyholders may be referred to a network of third-party vendors to assist with plan implementation. A 24-hour emergency preparedness and response hotline is also provided.
Private Client Group also has partnered with Insite Security so that policyholders can receive a one-on-one, at-home consultation (followed by a report outlining potential vulnerabilities and customized solutions); proposals for long-term security; and ongoing security training for staff and family.
