Today Trōv, whose applications help people collect and benefit from the information about every thing they own, announced it has partnered with the U.S.’s leading national and independent insurance brokers to promote Trōv’s applications for improving asset protection. Hub International, Lockton and Willis are among the national brokers recommending Trōv to their clients, while scores of the most prominent independent brokers, including Brown and Brown Private Client Group, Costello and Sons, Fort Point, G.S. Levine, Lane McVicker and TDC have also announced their support for Trōv’s products and services.
Each Trōv user activates a private online digital locker where the information about their property and possessions is collected, regularly valued, and securely managed. With Trōv, agents and carriers gain greater visibility into what their policyholders own and are acquiring, and are kept informed about the changing values of the items they insure. These insights enable agents to more effectively manage risk for their clients, who depend on them to adequately insure against loss.
“Trōv provides us with an accurate assessment of what our clients really own today, and an immediate view of what they’re acquiring in the future,” said Jim Kane, president, Hub International Personal Insurance. “With access to up-to-date, qualified appraised values in the Trōv, we can tailor policies and serve our clients in ways never before possible.”
”At the core of our industry is the need to accurately maintain insurance-to-value, but changes to value have been opaque until now,” said Jim Schwarzkopf, principal of TDC Risk Management. “Trōv gives our clients a new way to actively manage the information about their possessions, so we can better protect them if they experience property loss or damage.”
Many of the world’s leading appraisers have been trained by the Company to use its Trōv Collect application to perform in-home data-collection of client possessions. With an activated Trōv, clients and their advisors gain a complete knowledge of what the client owns, where it’s located, and what it’s worth, ensuring the client’s possessions are always accounted for and adequately protected.
“Insurers have long relied on limited information about their clients’ possessions, which has led to inaccuracies and undue exposure,” said Scott Walchek, CEO of Trōv. “Since Trōv collects more information, regularly revalues insured possessions, and also enables information to be collected at point-of-sale, policyholders and brokers are connected and informed like never before.”
