McKinney-Green Insurance was founded in 1920 and remains the oldest business still active in Franklin, TN. Some of the most prominent names in Franklin’s history have been associated with our agency such as Walter Roberts, Winder McGavock, Newt Cannon, Hugh Channell, and John Green. For nearly 100 years, we were a “generalist” insurance agency, but we have since evolved into a boutique risk advisory firm. We have a single focus on protecting affluent and high-net-worth individuals/families from unfortunate events, lawsuits, and unscrupulous people. We are one of only a handful of firms across the country and the only agency in Tennessee entirely devoted to this niche of insurance.
We are small because relationships matter. We serve less than 300 clients compared to our typical competitor serving the mainstream marketplace and averaging over 3000 clients! Our size allows us to develop close relationships with each client as trusted advisors, paying attention to the smallest of details and staying on top of the changes in our clients’ lives. We often work together with our client’s financial advisor, CPA, estate attorney, and other trusted advisors in order for us all to provide the best advice. Wealthy individuals and celebrities trust our expertise and advice while comfortably knowing confidentiality is paramount.
We believe knowledge is power. There is no substitute for rigorous continuing education courses, extensive studying, and focusing on a specific niche within insurance. While the majority of insurance “professionals” have only 4 days of insurance licensing school, we have devoted a significant amount of time and money to insurance education. Less than 1% of insurance professionals can match our education credentials.
Unlike a captive or direct insurance agency where the agent is employed by the insurance company and only offers its own products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. We work on our client’s side of the table, not the insurance company. We represent clients in accessing and negotiating with each of the 5 “Blue Chip” insurance companies that specialize in the high-net-worth space.
Most insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is. We do not sell insurance, but rather we help our clients choose the right insurance to buy. If an insurance company is not dealing fair with our clients, we fight for our clients and can leverage thousands of dollars in premiums to ensure fairness.
Here is a quick comparison of the differences between an independent agency like us, and the various other types of companies that are out there:
