Renter's Insurance Protects Your Assets
By Ellen Chang
NEW YORK (MainStreet)--Protecting your valuables and assets by purchasing renter's insurance could be a worthwhile investment and a way to minimize your risk financially.
Even apartment dwellers who have not amassed a large amount of furniture or expensive belongings should ensure they are protected against theft, accidents or other liabilities.
If the list of your current inventory of valuables is short and mostly limited to electronics such as your laptop, smart phone and TV or clothing, renter's insurance will protect you from any losses.Purchasing renter's insurance protects your belongings, because your landlord's insurance only covers the structure and liability exposure, said Bob Ketchum, East region product vice president for American Modern Insurance Group, based in Cincinnati. Not purchasing renter's insurance can you leave you exposed to a potential financial loss or setback, he said.
