Private Client Group

Private Client Group:

The Private Client division of Galt Insurance Group is staffed with advisors who have an extensive level of experience and understanding of how insurance is utilized as the bedrock of a client’s financial plan.  We aim to manage our client’s risk not only with insurance products, but also using risk reduction methods to maximize your premium dollars spent.  We do not believe in a one size fits all approach to risk management.  It is our goal to fully understand the exposures you and your family face and then build a program that not only works for you today but is one that will evolve with your ever-changing life.


Galt Insurance Mission:

Our mission at Galt Insurance Group is to provide peace of mind through insurance products that will best protect your most important assets.  We accomplish this by working exclusively with top tier insurance companies to match clients with carriers that best meet their needs.  We proudly serve our customers with accurate, timely and friendly service by a knowledgeable staff with a complete and current understanding of the evolving, and sometimes volatile, insurance market.
