A Word From Our Sponsor On The Benefits To Private Client Group Insurance

If you’ve been given the responsibility of finding insurance for a private client group, it’s important to know exactly what you’re investing in. There are quite a few benefits to insurance of any kind, but many times people just see it as something that they pump money into. Let’s look at a few of the benefits to having insurance in this situation.
The first way in which insurance can benefit your private client group is by the peace of mind insurance coverage brings. Those without coverage must constantly face the possibility that they could lose everything at any moment. If you have insurance, you can rest easy knowing that, should something happen, you’ll be covered. This can reduce a lot of unnecessary stress from your business proceedings and from your life in general.
Another benefit to having insurance comes from the coverage itself. Should something out of your control occur, you’ll have the help you need, financial and otherwise, to get back on your feet.
There are quite a few benefits to having private client group insurance; the things talked about above are just a few of the many things that you can stand to gain by making this investment. When it comes down to it, insurance can be so much of a help, it’s something that you can’t afford to invest in.

A Word From Our Sponsor On Addressing Unique Insurance Needs

Some insurance companies are hesitant to make a Property/Inland Marine Insurance product available to customers. The risk associated with these policies may simply be too high or maybe the company doesn’t have experience working with these lines of coverage. If you have customers that are interested in insuring property on or near inland bodies of water, then you should seek out an insurance carrier that can give you the support you need to serve these customers.

It’s fair to say that one of the best parts of working for an insurance company is satisfying the customers that come to you with difficult requests. Not all customers come to an insurance company looking for standard auto insurance policies or straightforward homeowner’s insurance policies. Sometimes a customer has some very specific needs in mind and can’t find the insurance product that’s right for them. Some of those clients are people who own property that’s near or adjacent to inland bodies of water. Lakes, bays, harbors, and reservoirs pose unique threats to property and the people who own those properties want to keep their interests safe. That’s why they are looking for a Property/Inland Marine Insurance policy and they want your insurance company to sell that policy to them.

Don’t let any of your clients go underserved. You shouldn’t have to turn away customers just because you don’t have the insurance product they really want. You can provide coverage from top rated carriers in the Property/Inland Marine Insurance policies you sell your customers.

Morning Buzz, April 18: The Cost of Renovating City Hall

Good morning. Today will be partly sunny with highs in the mid 60s. It’s not as perfect as Monday, but our taxes are filed (hopefully), which is cause enough for celebration.

Here’s what we’re reading this morning, starting with The Times’s N.Y./Region section:

Irving Fields, a 96-year-old who has been playing piano in New York since the 1920s, attributes his longevity to two-olive martinis, bedtime ice cream sundaes and his love of his job. “The real secret is that I love what I do, and the piano is my best friend,” said Mr. Fields, who performs six nights a week at Nino’s Tuscany in Midtown.

The city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a 600-property extension to the Park Slope Historic District on Tuesday, creating the largest unbroken stretch of protected buildings in the city.

A black and purple bunting hung from Engine 237 in Bushwick, Brooklyn, on Tuesday, honoring the life of Lt. Richard A. Nappi, who died Monday. “If they had a thousand of him, the city would be a great place,” said Ramesh Persaud, who lives near the firehouse.

On some city buses, riders must choose between door No. 1, 2 or 3.

A Web site that promised to connect people with much-needed jobs during the recession was actually a scheme to steal unemployed applicants’ identities, file bogus federal tax returns and collect tax refunds, prosecutors said on Tuesday.

After several mayoral candidates criticized Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s longstanding policy to close poorly performing schools, Mr. Bloomberg announced on Tuesday that the city would open 54 new schools in the fall — 24 charter schools and 30 regular public schools, many of which will fill spaces vacated by the schools he closed.

Intermediate School 318 in Brooklyn became the first middle school team to win the United States Chess Federation’s national high school championship.

Former State Senator Pedro Espada Jr. collected $256,195, the equivalent of 54 weeks of pay, for “unused vacation time,” an official from Mr. Espada’s taxpayer-financed Bronx nonprofit testified Tuesday at his embezzlement trial. [New York Post]

Assemblyman Rory I. Lancman has accused Assemblywoman Grace Meng’s campaign of planting a Jewish candidate in the Congressional race for New York’s Sixth District, to siphon votes away from his campaign. Ms. Meng denies the allegation, but her top campaign consultant, Michael Nussbaum, used a similar strategy to split votes in the past. [City & State]

A Brooklyn man who spent almost a year behind bars on charges that he raped an Orthodox Jewish woman — even though she recanted her accusation a day after making it — was released on Tuesday. [Daily News]

Five Minutes With Mike Wallace

Dear Diary:

With the recent passing of Mike Wallace, a story came to mind:

Metropolitan Diary

Reader Tales From the City

Seven years ago, I was rushing to an appointment at Lenox Hill Hospital. I was in the lobby waiting for the elevator; standing next to me was Mike Wallace.

When the elevator came, about eight people got on. My appointment was on a high floor, and, one by one, we stopped at each floor. Mr. Wallace was beside me.

When we stopped at the fifth floor, Joan Rivers was waiting for an elevator down. She called out: “Hi, Mike! How is everything going?” He replied: “Great, Joan. You look great.”

On the sixth floor, everyone except for Mr. Wallace and me got off. I turned to him and said, “Mr. Wallace, I have been watching you for years, and you’re terrific!” He replied, “I have been watching you for the last five minutes and you’re terrific!”

Mine was the next stop. I thanked him and went on my way with a smile on my face.
