Excerpt from Independent Agent
As families expand the definition of “vacation,” market opportunities are multiplying to insure companies that provide outdoor adventure, recreation and hospitality. “There is such a diverse spectrum of operations out there for the outdoor enthusiast,” says Steve Gulini, vice president, marketing at McNeil & Co. and AdvenSure program manager.
And as new recreational businesses and the accompanying risks have evolved, the AdvenSure program from McNeil & Co. has evolved with them. The program specifically addresses risks standard markets won’t cover: Whether the operation involves hunting, fishing, outdoor guides and more, McNeil understands the risks from first-hand experience.
If you are new to selling this market, the AdvenSure program offers agents support in the way of in-house claims and e-learning, a free online training platform clients can access to learn about risk management topics such as first aid and back-country preparedness.
And even if you don’t live an area known for outdoor activities, you might be surprised at the hidden opportunities. “You think of businesses like these in the mountain states, but there are dude ranches in New York, and we are proud to insure them,” Gulini says. “With AdvenSure, every class of business is available in virtually every state.”
