As you are aware, the DOL Fiduciary Rule has disrupted the entire industry and the way we do business will be changed forever. How is your company prepared what the future holds?

Discover the future of annuity distribution and how IMOs, BGAs, and carriers can ensure they survive despite the rule.  Don’t be casualty because you decided to sit back and “hope” everything works out.  Now is the time to prepare to thrive in the new wave of opportunities.

Join us for the year’s most important webinar about the future of annuity distribution on Thursday, April 21st at 1:00pm. Kim O’Brien and our special guests, Maria Ferrante-Schepis, Callie Currin, Richard Weber and InsuranceNewsNet publisher Paul Feldman will discuss:

  • The new world of compliance, legislation, and regulation – beyond the DOL
  • How commissions and your agents will be affected
  • How the DOL will impact your business strategy and model
  • Hidden opportunities for sales and growth

Our expert panelists will discuss the changes, strategies and opportunities in a post-DOL world. If you’re and agent or advisor we created a special webinar just for you: “Is There a Future for Insurance Agents Under the DOL Rule?
