NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The "go-to tool" for explaining life insurance to a client is the sales illustration. The good news: every insurance company's illustration has the same mandated elements. The bad news: a client may be distracted or confused because the illustration format tends a focus more on disclosure and less on the client experience. "Can't this be simpler?" is a typical client request and the motivation behind First Financial Resources' (FFR) move to be the first and only life insurance producer group to provide each member office with InsMark's Power Producer Platinum Suite through an unprecedented arrangement.
The Platinum Suite gives a FFR member office access to all of the InsMark illustration tools, training videos, blogs and back office resources. With InsMark, an advisor uses an appealing, graphical format to explain life insurance to a client, regardless of the insurance company selected. With the potential for distractions from different formats minimized, an advisor and client can focus on life insurance related questions.
The InsMark Platinum Suite is the latest add to the "resource line-up" offered to FFR member offices. As FFR's Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jud Imhoff explains, "Technology is a tool. A client relationship is priceless. With the addition of the InsMark arrangement, we are giving our member offices the tools to help them explain life insurance in a more visually-appealing, client-friendly way and still provide all of the required disclosures."
As 2017 starts, FFR celebrates its 30th year as an organization serving its member advisors. CEO Imhoff offers this perspective, "We started FFR with a framework that puts our member advisors' needs first and accepts they want and need their independence to be successful with their clients. Today, we align our decisions on technology, services, carrier choices, training, education and support around that framework. It keeps us nimble and relevant. We look at sales success as a result of focusing on the advisor and client needs, not the goal."
