I’d like to share something that has been a game changer for me in my business.   I have spent the last 2 years refocusing my business.  The most impactful change I made was pursuing and making Employee Group Benefits a focus.  By far the greatest tool I found in learning the Group Business was joining the CGIB. I had been introduced to the group about 18 months ago and have been involved ever since.  The monthly breakfast meetings use an open forum style which allows brokers/insurers/TPA’s etc. to discuss opportunities/challenges, you name it.  There are also several seminars a year on different topics pertaining to group and they always have top notch speakers.

The revenue generated from the group business in two years equates to 5-6 years of mutual fund asset gathering to achieve the same result… with fewer client relationship to manage.  Additionally, I now have a captive audience to speak to about wealth management and personal insurance.  It’s worked out well for me and it could for you too.
