How do I know if I’m a high net worth individual who needs specialist insurance?
When you work hard to be successful, you often don’t fully appreciate the wealth you’ve amassed.
Having worked extensively in this sector since 1976, Nowell & Richards are well positioned to understand and advise on your insurance requirements.
Even some of the most successful corporate business leaders, professional sportspeople, business owners and highly-successful entrepreneurs do not know that as a high net worth individual they may require specialist tailored insurance.
So how do you know if your insurance is fit for purpose and suitable to your lifestyle?
Who is a high net worth individual?
In order to be considered as a HNWI, your assets – excluding your primary home and its contents – must be worth around £755,000.
Surprisingly, most of the HNWIs we represent had no idea how much their assets were worth when we first spoke to them about the importance of protecting them with specialist insurance.
In most cases, it’s because they’ve accumulated wealth or assets over a long period of time and it’s easy to under-estimate the values of property and possessions.
The media also promotes insurance as a commodity which should be chosen by comparing quotes and special offers, rather than the professional application and provision of suitable cover.
How do you know if you’re a HNWI?
Having provided HNWIs with tailored insurance solutions for decades, there are a number of signs which can be used to identify people who we feel we can help the most.
In most cases, a HNWI has one or more of the following assets:
- House worth £650k and up – depending on where they live
- Second home or holiday home
- 3 or more prestige cars in household
- £250k of contents – including clothes
- £50k of jewellery (or higher)
- Art which is worth £50k-plus
