Turnkey Insurance Management Platform for RIAs
As other advisory channels adopt the fiduciary, fee-based business model, registered investment advisors (RIAs) have to expand their services to remain competitive. An essential part of this is the ability to offer insurance products. DPL Financial Partners has developed a Turnkey Insurance Management Platform to empower fee-only advisors to deliver enhanced client value and better compete with commission-free insurance. DPL’s comprehensive platform changes the dynamics of insurance so it can be integrated into client portfolios and financial plans by fiduciary advisors. The platform includes 30+ commission-free products from 18 leading carriers that advisors can manage and bill on. Advisors are further supported by educational materials, expert advice and interactive modeling tools that address the unique fiduciary, client reporting and billing requirements of the RIA market.
