High Net Worth, Personal Lines

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., May 26th, 2015 — AUI has created a new vertical within the Personal Lines Division to focus on the High Net Worth property and casualty personal insurance needs of its 30,000 agency partners. Reliance Risk Solutions (RRS) allows AUI to expand beyond their existing Personal Lines portfolio and place coverage for accounts that are unique, unusual, or require a high capacity. Reliance Risk Solutions is managed by Paul Kountz; who most recently managed five states for Fireman’s Fund and previously held a similar role at AIG. “Reliance Risk Solutions is uniquely positioned in the market by affording agents a consultative experience that not only draws upon the depth of knowledge of each placement specialist, but also leverages the technological resources that AUI has been known to provide. This value proposition provides our agency partners a critical advantage in attracting and retaining high net worth clients.” said Tagge Stroom, Direct of Personal Lines and Xpress Services.
