Insurance, Part of a Healthy Lifestyle

Part of a healthy lifestyle involves eliminating risks, whether medical or financial, from your environment.

The Republic of Panama is one place in the world where tornados and hurricanes are not part of the weather concerns and rarely do earthquakes strike. Living here reduces weather damage and injury.

Often people move into this environment and think there will also be no concerns about medical issues or property damage, but like anywhere else, insurance is a very necessary part of a healthy lifestyle here in Panama.

Hernando Vasquez recognizes that expats, as well as individuals who are considering making Panama their next home, need special assistance. He realizes that this particular group may have common needs, but they also each have individual needs and lifestyles. There is no one tropical lifestyle!

Hernando works with several insurance companies to put together a package to meet the needs of young retirees, older retirees, expats who are working in Panama or other parts of the world, and others in complex situations.
There is one special trait about this insurance executive—he cares about his clients, and he is available to both the Panama City area and the West Beach area as far as Rio Hato. When trouble strikes, he knows what to do.

Recently, an expat had her purse taken from her car. Although the robbery happened in late afternoon, with processing and much paperwork, she finally left the Police Stations at about 1:30 am. Without her phone that had all her numbers in it, including her husband’s, she was unable to contact anyone. The Panama phone book was of no help because it does not include cell numbers.

Fortunately, one number was available to her, that of Hernando Vasquez, written on her car insurance policy. Although late at night, Hernando not only answered his phone, but knew several mutual friends whom he called to finally get the husband’s number. This demonstrates an independent broker of the highest quality.

Hernando prides himself in providing clients with personalized service. “If one of our clients is in an accident, we have pictures taken at the scene, we fill out the claim form and personally deliver it to the insurance company. When the check is issued, we will pick it up and bring it to the client.” (Story continues with contact information)
