After being declined by several insurance companies for his personal insurance coverages, a very prominent NFL player and his team of advisors contacted Momentous Sports Division for assistance. The insurance companies considered the player to be a “high risk” due to a combination of his high profile, lucrative contract and young age. In an effort to combat this assessment, our Personal Lines team worked diligently with the athlete and his financial advisors to create a presentation that would clearly demonstrate why the insurance company should insure this particular athlete. The presentation provided detailed insight on trends and statistics, and further empirical data related to high profile athletes. After we presented this to the insurance company, they reconsidered their original assessment of the risk and offered terms to the athlete, who is now our client.
A professional baseball contract for a Momentous client excluded certain high risk activities and hobbies. Our life and health department worked with the athlete to determine the high risk activities in which they participated, and offered a solution to cover those activities under a disability program, thereby closing the gap in the contract and protecting the athlete’s income.
A business manager called Momentous to see if we could improve on the insurance coverage being provided by another broker. The client was a young, top scoring NHL Player, who was having difficulty getting affordable auto insurance because he hadn’t been licensed long in the U.S. He previously had an international driver’s license. In record time, Momentous reviewed the insurance portfolio, consolidated the policies and broadened coverage by adding flood insurance and an umbrella policy. Finally, through negotiation with our insurance carrier, we saved the client around 20% in premium.
A Los Angeles based business manager had a client who was moving to England to play on a premier soccer team. After a complete financial analysis with the business manager, the experts at Momentous noted that the player’s contract overseas was not guaranteed and would only pay up to one year for a career ending disability. Momentous was able to secure a policy that paid an additional tax free benefit of $225,000 in the event of a career ending injury. The policy also had an additional accidental death rider for $625,000.
We specialize in assisting people who are busy and need to get insurance in effect quickly. By using our strength in the industry, we can help get insurance in place for our clients whether they are traded to Boston or San Francisco.
No, your homeowners insurance would not protect you. However, Momentous has access to some specialty programs for sports camp insurance that offer coverage for the camp itself and accident protection for the participants.
We have been able to provide insurance to those drivers with multiple points on their driving record. In many states where it is mandatory to carry auto insurance, we have been successful with getting this coverage in effect, including coverage for high performance vehicles.
