The Financial Planning Association announced Tuesday that it has partnered with CalSurance to offer FPA members access to stable, low-premium, A-rated errors and omissions (E&O) insurance.
The partnership agreement between FPA and CalSurance, which is offered through Brown & Brown Program Insurance Services, Inc., doing business as CalSurance Associates, will provide life agents and RIAs with exclusive access to E&O insurance through their FPA membership, including what FPA says includes special plans and discounted pricing not available to other advisors.
“FPA members seeking E&O coverage will save hundreds — potentially thousands — through this new partnership,” FPA says.
FPA Executive Director and CEO Lauren Schadle said in a statement that E&O insurance “has always been viewed as too expensive by many in the financial planning profession. This program will give our members an opportunity to protect themselves and their businesses.”
Joshua Wels, vice president of marketingand operations at Brown & Brown Program Insurance Services, added in the statement that “while there are a variety of carriers providing professional liability insurance for large firms (over $500M in AUM), there are few affordable options including the features the growing advisor is looking for.”
