FIRST Insurance Funding, a Wintrust company, is the newest company to join the Big “I" Agents Council for Technology (ACT). FIRST Insurance Funding provides premium finance services and payment solutions for independent insurance agencies' commercial clients.
“Being a trusted advisor is a key element of the independent agency channel and streamlined payment and premium financing options allow agents to provide a personalized customer service touch while focusing their valuable time on building relationships with clients," says Chris Cline, ACT executive director. “We're glad to bring FIRST Insurance Funding into the ACT fold and are looking forward to learning from their experienced voice in this space."
FIRST Insurance Funding has been providing premium financing services in North America for more than 30 years, with more than $12 billion in loans financed annually. Backed by Wintrust, a $50+ billion financial holding company, FIRST Insurance Funding's loan process can be integrated with any agency management system or online platform, giving agencies the ability to provide seamless, secure billing and payment options.
"In this era of customers' high expectations around service, it's imperative that agencies can offer their insureds the ease and options they want and need," says Mark Steenberg, CEO of FIRST Insurance Funding. “We truly understand how to serve independent insurance agents and their clients through a plethora of payment and financing tools. We're excited to join ACT and work toward our shared goal of empowering agents to serve their clients."
