Revealed – which companies the wealthy choose for insurance

The rich may have money to spare, but they’re human too and also need insurance. A new survey by market research firm Altiant lets us in the world of the affluent when it comes to their top insurance provider picks.

A total of 632 individuals from the UK and the US were interviewed for the poll, which categorised the respondents as either high net worth individuals (HNWI) or emerging HNWI. They are classified based on investable assets, with emerging HNWI having between US$250,000 and US$1 million; HNWI, more than US$1 million.
