McGriff partners with Truist to make its personal insurance digital marketplace available to mortgage clients

Nov. 16, 2022

McGriff, one of the leading full-service retail insurance brokers in the U.S., is partnering with Truist Mortgage to offer its new online personal insurance marketplace—McGriff powered by Covered—to the company’s mortgage clients as part of a one-stop home financing experience.

Starting immediately, Truist clients applying for a mortgage can shop for home insurance at the same time, reducing the stress of dealing with multiple transactions that can make the home purchasing process such a challenge. With McGriff powered by Covered, information entered into a loan application can be used simultaneously to generate insurance quotes from several of the nation’s top carriers.

“Given that they go hand-in-hand, it’s just common sense to combine the mortgage and home insurance purchasing process,” said Renee Keen, chief executive officer for Small Business and Personal Insurance at McGriff. “It’s part of our philosophy to make the insurance shopping experience as easy as possible for any customer in any situation.”

“We know homebuying is one of the largest and most stressful purchases our clients make during their life,” added Todd Chamberlain, executive vice president and head of Truist Mortgage. “Our partnership with McGriff powered by Covered is an important step in our vision to simplify a complex process, giving our clients tools to easily shop for insurance coverage.”

Through a simple, seamless interface within the Truist Mortgage Online application experience, mortgage clients can:

  • Review home insurance quote options that include property coverages and cost
  • Search and link their existing home insurance policy to compare quote options for potential savings
  • Upload or link proof of an existing insurance policy, if applicable
  • Talk to an experienced, licensed agent by phone, email, or even schedule a call time to review their insurance needs

The simple-to-use insurance platform doesn’t stop with just home insurance. Clients have access to multiple insurance solutions—auto, umbrella, flood, and many more—when connecting with a McGriff advisor.

“We’re excited about what the future holds for the personal insurance shopper,” said Keen. “McGriff powered by Covered strikes an ideal balance between touch and technology.”
