Why Acumen is Different


The reason why Acumen is different is because we don’t just dabble in life insurance – it’s our specialty.

From superior client service to complete carrier and product independence to proactive underwriting, Acumen surpasses clients’ and advisors’ expectations when it comes to the design, placement, and servicing of life insurance.

Collaborating with Acumen

Who we are

Acumen insurance solutions specializes in the strategic use of life insurance for estate planning, business succession planning, and owner/executive benefit planning for both u.s.–based and foreign national clients. We review existing policies and custom design new policies to meet client’s specific needs while collaborating, ensuring that any proposed coverage changes fit within the framework of the client’s overall plan. We strive to exceed expectations but not only offering sound advice, but also providing top-notch customer service.

Why collaborating works

As specialists in our respective fields, we work hard at providing our clients with the best possible service. However, our client’s needs often extend beyond the realm of the services we can offer them on our own. An accountant gives tax advice, an attorney gives legal advice, a financial planner gives investment advice, and an insurance professional designs insurance products. Rarely, is one professional able to offer a high quality one-stop shop for clients. This reality places us all in the position of having to defer to the expertise of our colleagues who are equipped to serve our clients in the ways we cannot. By teaming up with like-minded firms, we make our clients happier through collaborating and, consequently, watch our practices grow. Acumen insurance solutions continues to expand as a result of forming referral relationships with key players in other fields and we would enjoy having the opportunity to grow with you as well.
