INSURANCE SOLUTIONS

Safeguarding your clients and their assets

Preparing for the unexpected is one of the most important aspects of financial services, but can also be one of the most complex. Determining how much coverage your client needs to protect their loved ones in their absence, supplement income needs in the event of a disability, or protect a business, requires specialized knowledge. It also relies on an in-depth and comprehensive understanding of the client’s financial picture to help ensure that the coverage you select is not only adequate for their needs, but represents the best cost-for-value.

Annuities

We offer a range of annuities, including: fixed-rate deferred and immediate, variable deferred and immediate, and index annuities – with nearly 10 different carriers.

Life insurance

Give your clients the confidence of knowing that their family will be taken care of in the event that something should happen to them. We offer whole, universal and variable universal life, second-to-die fixed and variable universal life, and single premium variable universal life options.

Long-term care

No one should have to worry about affording care for themselves or a loved one. We offer comprehensive policies, nursing home policies, home and community-care policies, and shared-benefit policies.

Disability insurance

Give your clients peace of mind with personal income protection, disability overhead, and disability buyout.
