From Our CEO’s Desk
Besides our webinars and case studies, our CEO has written various articles and the Insuritas model has been written about in various papers.
It’s Time for Banks to Put an Insurance ‘Aisle’ In Their Stores
“The only financial product that 100% of our customers purchase every year, year in and year out, is insurance – our goal at Bancorp South Insurance is to have a permanent insurance aisle in our stores, so our customers know they will never have to leave our bank to insure themselves, their families and their businesses.”
Insuritas CEO Jeff Chesky explains his vision of an insurance aisle in every bank and credit union.
GoogleCompare Had Steve Jobs Rolling Over – LeadGen to Continue Collapse
“A new generation of Agents and Agency is emerging – reimagined to reflect what the customer actually wants, even though, in the iconic words of Steve Jobs – ‘they didn’t know it’.”
Insuritas CEO Jeff Chesky writes on the failures of LeadGen models and how we as members of the insurance industry can do better. When insurance carriers encourage these LeadGen models, they put our brands at risk by taking advantage of our customers’ data.
The Uberization of Insurance
“A new generation of agents, fulfilled in their work as risk managers and customer advocates, operating in a seamless, frictionless eco-system in service to the customer.”
Insuritas CEO Jeff Chesky writes about how as UBER has re-imagined the taxi cab industry to provide customers with a seamless comfortable ride, insurance agents must do the same for their customers. Over 5000 consumers and small business owners ask our agents for help each month, with no cost of customer acquisition or application preparation. Due to the underwriting packets prepared by our partners, our agents can solely focus on providing great customer service.
Non-Interest Income: Banks Find It In the Insurance Aisle
“Innovative bank executives are proving that when their customers visit the bank online to pay bills or check balances, the bank can offer them additional value-added products and services while also driving non-interest income.”
Insuritas CEO Jeff Chesky writes in BankNews about fee income, value-added fee income, the banking industry’s new market for insurance companies, and case studies from Insuritas – how we do it better. Wells Fargo CEO John Stump explained that “Wells is one of the largest originators of mortgages and used-car loans and those borrowers all need insurance”. That is exactly the reason we partner with banks to create their own aisle.
Explaining Insuritas’s Model
