Sophie Riley is a Managing Advisor in AHT’s Private Client Department. Sophie works with clients and their advisors to customize personal insurance portfolios to meet families’ individual needs. Her expertise is in Property & Casualty Insurance – reviewing personal policies, such as Homeowners, Collections, Auto, Watercraft and Umbrella. A personal umbrella is the most important policy in a portfolio because it can protect a client’s assets, net worth, and future earning potential should they be found at-fault in a catastrophic loss.
Sophie has over ten years of specialized expertise in the Private Client Insurance marketplace and frequently attends carrier events to remain fluent in industry changes. She enjoys working as the advocate for her clients and prides herself in ensuring they are adequately protected in the event of a loss. Successful families face significant risks and require customized insurance solutions to meet their unique needs. AHT is appointed with all the premier carriers in the marketplace such as Chubb, PURE, AIG, Cincinnati, and Nationwide Private Client which gives us the ability to shop the marketplace on behalf of our clients.
In her personal time, Sophie enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She and her husband, Joe, live in Ballard and have two young children, Liv and Cade. They are passionate about traveling and look forward to lots of international adventures with their children. They spend a good deal of time on Orcas Island, where she was raised. Other passions include boating, hiking, kayaking, fine wine, and spas. She currently serves on the Seattle Aquarium Auxiliary Board as the Vice Chair and is passionate about marine conservation. Prior to moving to Seattle, Sophie graduated from Western Washington University (WWU) and was a board member for the Women’s Professional Network, an active member of Whatcom Young Professionals, and a mentor at Big Brothers / Big Sisters of Northwest Washington. During her time at university, she was lucky enough to study abroad with a small group of students in southeast Asia. This experience changed her perspective on the world, and she is forever grateful for the several months she spent there.
