Premium Finance

Successful investors and businesses understand the wealth-creating power of leverage. For clients with an established need for life insurance, premium financing can allow them to take advantage of leverage to potentially reduce out-of-pocket costs and preserve capital for more lucrative investments.

Schechter has built a team of bankers, product analysts, lawyers and underwriters who specialize in the ideation, construction, acquisition and implementation of premium financing programs. Top insurance advisors from around the country are partnering with Schechter to bring the right solutions to the right clients.

Perhaps most important to the success of these strategies is the ongoing management of the program. Schechter's review and service teams are committed to providing our Strategic Partners and their clients with annual loan and policy management for decades to come
