Who is Your IMO?
Your business as an independent agent, registered rep, OSJ, or broker-dealer is all about relationships. After your clients, your most important business relationship is with your Insurance Marketing Organization (IMO). After all, in this relationship YOU are the customer.
Kestler Financial Group was founded by producers just like you.
Marketing organizations owned by insurance companies, by definition, are not independent. Those organizations have incentives to push products owned by their parent company. KFG is family-owned, independent, and offers products that are right for our customer—you—and your customers.
Your IMO should provide 24-hour access to pending applications, product training, materials, and compliance technology. Make sure that the IMO’s website is more than a pretty presence on the web and that the company is large enough to sustain keeping pace with the latest developments. KFG has pioneered award-winning, custom agent-support technology.
Kestler is very professional and knowledgeable. I look forward to working with and writing a lot of business with Kestler this year and many years to come.
You didn’t get into business to spend your time tracking down business that has fallen into a black hole. From the time you submit an application until you get paid, your IMO should be the one tracking your business through the system and updating you on its progress. Remember, you’re the customer. We built Kestler with you, the producer, in mind.
Does your IMO know what regulations are barreling down the road to affect your business? KFG officers occupy leadership roles in the industry’s most influential organizations. You’ll have industry insights long before the competition.
Since 1997, innovation, technology, and determination have set Kestler Financial apart from its competitors. Specializing in life insurance, annuities, long term care, and securities KFG has become widely known as a knowledgeable and experienced resource for independent agents seeking the very best products in these fields. KFG is also a proud member of The Annexus Group, a marketing alliance dedicated to the design and promotion of innovative and revolutionary financial products.
Unique to only a handful of IMO’s, Kestler Financial is intimately involved in both the securities and fixed sides of the industry. Having owned and operated a broker/dealer in the past we fully understand the unique value proposition that Kestler offers. Currently KFG operates the largest Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction (OSJ) for Centaurus Financial a registered broker/ dealer and member of FINRA and SIPC. Through Centaurus Financial, our registered reps can offer stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and other registered products to retail clients.
