BREAKOUT SESSION: Astonishing the Client with Your Personal Lines Knowledge with Jeff Odom, AAI, AIAM, CISR, Insurance Analyst
A recent study found that 60 percent of policyholders had no idea what their home or auto policy fully covers. Because there is no guidance for proper coverage, most people are only buying it because they are required to either by law or by their financial institution. In this session, Jeff Odom will discuss personal lines coverages that the client may not know they have as well as coverages they thought they had. Sponsored by Florida Peninsula Insurance Company/Edison Insurance.
