INDIANAPOLIS — (Jan. 21, 2020) — Chris Novotney, director of Personal Insurance at MJ Insurance, 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.
Novotney is among a distinguished group of only 39 agents this year to receive the certification after completing a one-year intensive educational program focused on understanding the lifestyle, 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.
“We are extremely proud that Chris has received the prestigious CAPI designation,” said President and COO of MJ Insurance, Jon Loftin. “This accomplishment proves his incredible dedication to the insurance industry as well as his ongoing commitment to serving families and individuals who have a unique set of exposures created by their assets and lifestyle.”
CAPI program 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 2019. 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.
“Because the 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.
