Alliant Broker Jacqueline Altschul Recognized as a 2019 Private Client Power Broker
Jacqueline Altschul, Account Executive Lead, Alliant Insurance Services
By building deep relationships with her clients and their families, Jacqueline Altschul adds value by often anticipating risk before they do.
While reviewing coverage for a billionaire client from Japan, she noticed he hadn’t appraised his art collection in five years.
A new appraisal was completed, revealing the collection was valued at $145 million, significantly more than the insured value of $37 million.
Another client who manages more than $3 billion in assets for private families and has worked with Altschul for 20 years said she is extremely knowledgeable in both business and personal lines. She helped his clients secure policies for high-value art, apartments, and jewelry, in addition to excess liability umbrellas.
“She understands all of the business and personal aspects. Corporations, LLC, sub chapter S, she does it all. She’ll get you the $10 million or the $25 million excess policies as well,” he said.
A personal assistant to a high net worth individual with extensive real estate holdings has been working with Altschul since 1998. She credits her growing knowledge in the insurance industry to the broker’s willingness to explain everything.
During annual reviews, Altschul never tries to upsell, even when that comes at the expense of a commission, she said. When a client recently purchased a waterfront property, Altschul was able to have the existing excess flood coverage grandfathered in and transferred to her client, a move that saved $100,000 in premiums.
