Annuity Marketing That Works For You
At Kestler Financial Group, you’ll have one annuity marketing point of contact that keeps you up to date with products, new regulations, and new insurance carrier initiatives. And they’re not just desk jockeys.
A walk in your shoes
Even after our rigorous screening of new employees, we mandate ongoing training and encourage all of our wholesalers to participate in personal sales. They’ve stood in your shoes. Our wholesalers experience what a sales scenario feels like. You benefit from their experience by working with a marketing team that understands the world you work in.
Our marketing department consists of some of the brightest and most talented insurance wholesalers in the country. All of our internal wholesalers are insurance-licensed, participate in continuing education, take the exams for securities licensing, and ultimately acquire industry certifications.
Whether providing prospecting ideas, explaining a new product, or acting as a personal mentor, your wholesaler will become an integral part of your business.
Are You Chasing Paper To Get Paid?
How much time and money is chasing paper costing you? Industry wide, only 37% of the business submitted to insurance carriers by independent agents is considered clean and ready to process. Every case that bounces back to you costs you time that you won’t be utilizing to prospect and sell – eroding your bottom line.
You didn’t get into business to spend your time tracking down business that has fallen into a black hole.
We are your back office
Every policy you sell with Kestler Financial is expedited through the system by a team of case managers with an award-winning* custom database that manages the tedious details of management for you from the moment you submit your sale to us.
Each of your applications is sent to a specialized team member to review for errors, outdated documents, and missing information. Your case manager can tell you that 99.6% of the business submitted to insurance carriers from our office is considered to be clean.
Kestler Financial’s system is so efficient and accurate that specific insurance carriers require you to submit your business through Kestler Financial’s case management team.
