Orland Park, IL, January 6th, 2020 — Kenneth Sidlowski of The Horton Group in Orland Park, Illinois has been awarded a Certified Advisor of Personal Insurance (CAPI) designation from the Aresty Institute of Executive Education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and Chubb.
Kenneth Sidlowski is among a group of only 39 agents this year to receive the certification after completing a one-year intensive educational program on understanding the lifestyle and risk management and insurance needs of successful individuals and families. Created by Wharton and Chubb in 2014, the CAPI program is the first of its kind to focus on a specific client segment in the personal insurance marketplace.
“Because risk management and insurance needs of successful individuals and families can be complex, agents who have completed the CAPI program have demonstrated the highest level of skill and proficiency required to understand their successful clients’ holistic wealth management needs and to counsel them on how to protect their lifestyles,” said Mary Parsons, Executive Vice President, Sales and Distribution Leader, Chubb Personal Risk Services.
“We are extremely proud that Ken has received the prestigious CAPI designation,” said Dan Horton, Chief Executive Officer of The Horton Group. “This shows his incredible dedication to the insurance industry as well as his ongoing commitment to serving successful individual and families, who have a unique set of property and liability exposures created by their assets and lifestyle.”
Courses are taught by Wharton faculty, Chubb subject matter experts and other wealth management professionals. Agents received instruction on the Wharton campus at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and through virtual classes, webcasts, reading assignments and other online activities throughout 2018. Participants also have ongoing access to fellow class members and program alumni, and upon graduation, must maintain their certification by completing annual continuing education requirements facilitated by Wharton.
