There are many factors taken into account when determining one’s insurance rates. While wealthy people have more assets to protect, they still manage to spend less money on insurance policies, and there are several reasons why. Firstly, one of the major factors that plays a role in locking your insurance rate is your credit score. Insurance companies use your credit record as a way to predict the likelihood of you filing a claim on your insurance policy. People with higher credit scores are considered less risky clients, so they get lower rates on their policies, while people with lower credit scores receive higher rates. Wealthy people tend to have very good credit scores because of their assets, and for the same reason, they are also not likely to file small claims since they can afford paying those out of pocket.
Another reason why wealthy people spend less money on their insurance policies is their ability to network and use their business and personal connections to research the best options for insurance. They also have less time to compare policies on their own. As a result, many wealthy people use the services of independent agents who do the comparison between multiple insurance companies for them and find the best insurance rates for relevant policies. Non-wealthy people generally think they cannot afford the services of an independent insurance agent and choose policies of the insurance providers who advertise on radio and television, such as Farmer’s or State Farm.
