Relationship Standards

Responsible Service

We take the point position as client advocates - negotiating in your favor, and watching your back. Through the power of partnership you can link not only to our own people and technology, but to the people and technology of our financial institutions strategic partners.

Practical Knowledge and Experience

We also apply the power of partnership to continually expand resources so you can respond effectively when today's solutions encounter tomorrow's changes - in your family, your business, your financial environment.

Resources assure the quality of our work

Institutional Relationships

Our product resource relationships support your buying power with highly regarded, well-managed, and financially sound financial services institutions.

Dedicated Resources

Dedicated Resource Units are in place with all core carriers to give our firm a direct voice in product and services development and immediate response to our clients' needs.

Decision Tools

Proprietary decision tools like the Life Insurance Design Questionnaire prioritize objectives and identify a manageable range of clearly explained product solutions.

Underwriting Advantages

We provide underwriting advocacy to negotiate favorable pricing offers based upon unique client situations rather than statistical models.

Collaboration Leverages Your Advisor Team

Your first requirement should be advisors who listen to you and understand how you think - family-centered, entrepreneurial, practical, compassionate. Invite them to challenge you - to ask the questions no one else asks. Require them to communicate to you without professional jargon, shoptalk, or obscure acronyms.

Make sure they have deep experience in their own fields of knowledge, as well as access to a broad range of resources outside their fields. Combining the resources of our partners and your advisors, your team can provide you...
