The Power of Professional Independence


Within the insurance and financial services world, there are two categories of agents: Captive and Independent:

 

 

  • Captive Agents are employees and limited to offering products approved by their employer.  They are trained how to make those products seem like the best there is, whether true or not.
  • Independent Agents have no such limitation and are free to recommend products offered by anyone without regard to artificially pre-determined offerings and recommendations.  BUT, most Independent advisors operate with little or no formal advanced training about how products work or where specific products perform optimally.  They may have the ability to make ideal recommendations but too often lack the skill and knowledge to do so.

 

 

Only an Independent Agent who is also a Skilled Professional can truly make recommendations that are both unbiased and insightful. At AIN, we take great pride in the fact that we are Top Level Skilled Independent Professionals with access to companies and products reserved only for the best of the best.
