Sam Kaufman, President, Agent Support Group

The first 60 days of 2021 have been very exciting and point to this being an exceptional year for ASG and many of our advisors.

Traditional Guaranteed Universal Life products have all but disappeared from the portfolios of many companies.   New forms of GUL are appearing in variable and indexed universal life products that offer clients both guaranteed premiums and death benefit in addition to cash value accumulation.  ASG is able to work with your broker dealer and still provide you the same underwriting and design expertise for variable life products  as we do on traditional life products.  Find out how competitive GVUL is before seeing your next client.

More companies start to limit products in New York.   The most recent company to withdraw many products from New York is John Hancock.   If you have a pending sale involving any John Hancock product other than term or Accumulation UL make certain that the application is submitted as soon as possible.   Don’t be surprised to see other companies follow John Hancock’s lead in New York.

Agent Support Group is also expanding its annuity portfolio with the addition  of a Fixed Indexed Annuity designed by Nationwide exclusively for Amerilife, our parent company. Peak 10 offers two exclusive index options from Alliance Bernstein and JP Morgan plus a guaranteed participation rate for ten years.  Give ASG a call and we will provide you additional information about this exciting product.

More exciting news is coming in coming months so stay tuned.
