Your insurance business, in fact, any business, can only reach its full potential by planning and implementing strategic initiatives with specific long and shot terms milestones.

- How it works:
- The business obtains the succession loan
- Loan proceeds are used by incoming ownership to repurchase the existing owner’s stock
- Equity is redistributed among succession owners
- Loans can be structured as a one-time event or a multiple-year transaction
- Are you a large agency? Check out our FREE Insurance Agency Exchange service where you can connect with insurance agency buyers and sellers in your area. We provide the marketplace where buyers and sellers meet!

- Business debt restructure loans can be used to:
- Pay off a bank lien or seller’s note
