“Insurance strategies are a critical component when offering holistic financial advice,” said CAIS Founder and CEO Matt Brown. “Insurance can be complex, and most advisors seek a specialist. Schechter’s track record of servicing advisors is unmatched,” Brown continued.
Advisors will have access to:
- Education and advice on actionable insurance strategies
