  • We add to their menu of services, and help them differentiate themselves from their competition.
  • We help them enhance their client’s perception of value from the advisor and their role.
  • We hold “client confidentiality” as sacred and fundamental, never sharing information beyond “need to know” parties in our office or our insurance family, nor with others in the client’s own office or other relationships.
  • We are educational to them, helping them increase their working knowledge of what we do, so they may use this information for their purposes, and in working with us.
  • We help them protect themselves from a fiduciary standpoint, allowing them to competently address areas of intelligent risk management for their client’s asset and liability protection.
  • We increase their professional network of professionals by becoming a resource and a business partner.
  • We are a match for their philosophy, niche, and standards of quality and professionalism, since their affluent, high net worth clients are synonymous with our own.
  • We bring to them insurance product and market expertise, and strong relationships and clout with the top insurers in the high end market. Currently, Duble & O’Hearn is one of the 4 largest personal lines agents in the region with both Chubb and Fireman’s Fund.

  • We will keep them well-informed on our progress with their clients, so they are up-to-speed and not out of the loop. At the same time, we will allow and encourage minimum involvement by them on our service interactions, assuming this is their choice and desire.
