Remembering Back When – Repossessing in the 60’s

….A long, long time ago

Guest Editorial

In looking at our industry as it is today I began to compare it to what it was like some 50 years ago.  The changes are huge and so I thought maybe it might be interesting to reminisce by putting those changes in an article.  Some of the “old timers” (I mean really, really old timers) will relate to those times and those who were not there back then may enjoy reading about them.  This article is all factual and is based completely from my personal experiences when I came into the industry in the 1960’s.

Allied Finance Adjusters Secures Individual $1M Fidelity Protection Policies for its Members!

Attention Financial Institutions and Recovery Agencies Owners

Allied Finance Adjusters has secured individual $1,000,000 Fidelity Protection Policies for its members!

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Many of you may already know that all the collateral recovery trade associations have lost their group Bond protection insurance policies. The Texas Department of Insurance was the first State to review the “bond” coverage that the trade associations had all purchased (from the same carrier, amazingly).  After the Texas review, other states joined in and began their own reviews of the group bond coverage. After months of looking at the group policies and the way they had historically been handled, the regulators decided that allowing the associations to pay the fidelity bond coverage premium for the entire group of its members was, by state law, an unlicensed “selling” of insurance.  The regulators also took issue with calling it “bond” coverage rather than “fidelity protection” coverage! So, in order to avoid any conflict or sanction by the state regulators, Allied Finance Adjusters went to work and negotiated a compliant program with its new carrier, The Hanover Insurance Group.
