Testimonials From Bankers

Severn Savings Bank

As we approached renewal time for our insurance policies, our Board wanted to be sure we invested wisely in insurance and obtained adequate coverage.  In the past, we’ve always relied on our existing agents for insurance recommendations.  Having someone like Scott that knows the insurance needs of banks and doesn’t sell insurance directly was something we felt we needed.  His unbiased approach and expertise was something we lacked in the past.

We’ve been working with Scott for several months now on reviewing our existing policies, assisting with coverage limits, and negotiating with carriers.  His services have been extremely helpful and made the process much smoother than prior years.  I’m sure we’ll be working with Scott for years to come.

Your work for us is as important as any insurance policy we buy.

Bill SwalesBangor Savings Bank

Scott brought an understanding of community bank insurance that neither our bank nor our agent possessed.  As soon as we signed our contract, Scott became a member of our team and was only concerned with our best interest. I just wish we had contacted him sooner.

Premier Bank

Scott’s approach to our insurance review was very professional and timely. We discovered several areas in our policies that had significant gaps in coverage or no coverage at all. Scott’s knowledge of financial institution insurance coverage needs is the best I have ever encountered. His opinions and thoughts are unbiased, because he is not representing an insurance company or receiving any commissions. I believe his fee was more than recovered by our premium savings, though our goal was not the cost of our policies but the coverage within the policies. It was all about peace of mind.

I have been thoroughly impressed with Scott’s knowledge and understanding of the Insurance industry. Working with a consultant of Scott’s caliber certainly makes my job as CEO a lot easier, as it is nearly impossible to stay on top of all the changes in the industry. Knowing that we have the proper type and amount of insurance protection is very comforting. Scott has been very easy to work with and extremely responsive to all my questions and concerns.

Your involvement has been of great value as we work through complex insurance issues. The detailed support you provided helped us strike a better balance between coverage and premiums during our last renewal. I appreciate your responsiveness and the fact that you’re only a phone call away for insurance information and assistance.

We give Scott an A+++. He made sense of all the issues and his insight was invaluable.

Sherri EvansVP Finance, CFOTruChoice Federal Credit UnionPortland, ME

Hiring Scott to review the bank’s insurance policy quotes has proven to be a very good decision for the Bank. Scott is knowledgeable, thorough, and understood what we were trying to accomplish thru the evaluation process. Scott accomplished this on short notice and gave us his recommendation with detailed exhalations between the different proposals. On top of this he ended up negotiating a significant decrease in our premium.
