PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and Chubb Personal Insurance have awarded the first Certified Advisor of Personal Insurance (CAPI) designations to 37 agents and brokers.
Created by Wharton and Chubb in 2014, the CAPI program helps agents and brokers serve as trusted advisers to high-net-worth clients. Following 12 months of study, program participants must complete a project to demonstrate their mastery of the curriculum.
"The agents who have completed the CAPI program have developed a full understanding of high-net-worth clients, including their financial affairs, family governance and philanthropic activities," said Stacey Silipo, director of strategic partnerships for Chubb Personal Insurance. "By being more knowledgeable about all the financial dynamics in high-net-worth families, these agents are in a better position to help clients manage their most significant risk exposures."
CAPI's curriculum consists of six modules related to the high-net-worth mindset, custom insurance solutions, building client relationships, selling, excelling in the high-net-worth arena and sustaining excellence. Courses, which are taught by Wharton faculty, Chubb subject matter experts and other professionals, include "Understanding the Total Family Balance Sheet," "Collections," (art, jewelry, antiques, wine, etc.), "Family Security," "Relational Agility" and "Building Your Personal Brand." Classes are held on Wharton's campus in Philadelphia, at Chubb Personal Insurance's headquarters in Whitehouse Station, NJ, and online.
The agents and brokers in CAPI's first graduating class work for a variety of organizations, ranging from major global and regional brokerages to small-town, family-owned independent agencies across the United States. A list of the CAPI graduates is available at: http://www.chubb.com/personal/content/resources/capi/capi_graduates.html
