How the Horton Group is Paid
Fiscal checks and balances
"We encourage clients to evaluate us with the same level of scrutiny that they would give an attorney, accountant or other trusted advisor."
- Glenn Horton, CEO and Chairman, The Horton Group
The Horton Group welcomes fiscal checks and balances
What is the financial condition of the insurance broker with whom you work? Would the company let you examine their financials? Your insurance broker plays a critical role in the stability and security of your business, so partner with a firm that understands and appreciates that responsibility.
While The Horton Group is privately-held, we behave in many respects like a publicly-traded company. Though the process is not required by any regulatory agency, an outside firm audits The Horton Group's financial statements annually. Also, Horton's financial data is readily available for review by both clients and employees.
Privately owned, yet governed by an independent board
The Horton Group's board of directors is comprised of people who built large public companies. They provide a level of governance that is not common among privately-held businesses. The result is a strong, growing company that has taken a number of steps to ensure that no one can compromise The Horton Group's high standards of professionalism.
Perspectives on Corporate Governance and Disclosure...
"The premiums Horton customers pay are held in a fiduciary trust account. The board of directors has put the appropriate safeguards in place to ensure this money is not spent improperly. The governance structure of The Horton Group demonstrates to clients that they are working with a company committed to longevity."
- Bob Lipsig, Principal, RLJ Private Investment Co. and Director, The Horton Group Accountability
"Managing risk management and employee benefit programs is a significant responsibility, any mis-step on the part of a broker can potentially cripple a company. The Horton Group has implemented extraordinary procedures to ensure the financial security of their clients."
- Stan Neimark, Director, The Horton Group Openness
"Some business owners hold all of the information to themselves. In contrast, we share company information with employees, clients and suppliers, and we encourage open feedback."
- Glenn Horton, President and CEO, The Horton Group
