Policy Matters Newsletter

Policy Matters is a quarterly e-newsletter that arrives in the inbox of the fee-only financial advisors we work with.

The information contained in Policy Matters is not intended to make you an insurance expert; no one expects you to know all the ins and outs of the industry, just as they don’t expect us to interpret trends on the NASDAQ. The articles in Policy Matters provide updates to changes in the industry, insights into lesser known insurance solutions, facts and figures, and examples that come from actual clients.
