Another First for Independent Financial Concepts Group and the Insurance Industry

Toronto, On (PRWEB) August 01, 2013

Another first for IFCG and the insurance industry!

IFCG…..always looking to put the clients interest first by supporting the Independent Advisor with tools, knowledge and expertise to assist their clients to make the best informed decision for their insurance and financial needs.

With today’s ever changing climate of product design, complexity and structure, it is often difficult to analyze products based upon illustrations, client bonuses, fees, loads and contract wording etc. IFCG felt, by having a professional Actuary in-house to support IFCG and advisors in analyzing products which will allow you to present thorough, accountable, sound recommendations and products based on your client’s needs which have been analyzed & reviewed by a professional Actuary would provide beneficial comfort and confidence the recommendation put forth to your clients is sound.

IFCG is therefore, extremely pleased to announce Catherine MacRae, FSA, FCIA will be consulting with IFCG effective September 2013. Catherine brings to IFCG and its Advisors a wealth of experience and expertise in the Actuarial field.

Stay tuned and watch for a new product/service - IFCG Certified
