PHILADELPHIA, December 20, 2019 - Scott Taylor Jefferson, an insurance broker at Clarke & Sampson, Inc., was awarded the prestigious Certified Advisor of Personal Insurance (CAPI) designation from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and Chubb.

Created by Wharton and Chubb in 2014, the CAPI program helps agents and brokers serve as trusted advisers to successful clients. Following 12 months of study, program participants must complete a capstone project to demonstrate their mastery of the curriculum. To date, there are 213 insurance professionals who hold the prestigious designation.

“Agents and brokers who have successfully completed the CAPI program have examplified a full mastery of the financial dynamics and risk management challenges facing successful clients,” said Mary Parsons, Executive Vice President, Sales and Distribution Leader, Chubb Personal Risk Services. “By being more knowledgble about the financial dynamics affecting successful individuals and families, CAPI agents and brokers are in a greater position to help them manage their most significant risk exposures.”

CAPI’s curriculum consists of six modules related to the financially-successful mindset, custom insurance solutions, building client relationships, selling, excelling in the high-net-worth arena, and sustaining excellence. Courses, which are taught by Wharton faculty, Chubb subject matter experts and other professionals, include “Understanding the Total Family Balance Sheet,” “Collections” (art, jewelry, antiques, wine, etc.), “Insurance Concerns and Special Needs,” “Building Relationships,” and “Trust Based Selling.” Classes are held on Wharton’s campus in Philadelphia and online.

The agents and brokers in the CAPI’s fifth graduating class work for a variety of organizations, ranging from major global and regional brokerages to small-town, family-owned independent agencies across the United States and in Canada.
