We are an interconnected network of life and senior market health insurance distributors and financial services providers, focused on helping you help your business and your customers.
Everyone’s got a story to tell. Including us.
LTC Global was founded in 2002 by a team of Long Term Care insurance veterans and actuarial experts. The goal was — and still is — to provide strategic management and financial resources to agencies and agents in the life and health insurance and reinsurance industry. What started as a consultancy quickly grew to acquiring and managing agencies directly.
Following successful capital raising efforts, LTC Global began providing capital resources — specifically, purchasing renewal commission assets for cash — to insurance agents and agencies, realizing that this can often be the best way to help serve the market.
LTC Global acquired Kanawha's long term care marketing division in Fort Myers, Florida. The Fort Myers team has become the hub of agent support operations for all LTC Global companies.
LTC Global acquired several more insurance agencies throughout the country, including United Insurance Group Agency, Inc. (UIG), a national distributor of Medicare and other senior health insurance products.
We entered the life insurance distribution business by acquiring Pacific Southwest Financial & Insurance Services, Inc., a Capitas agency that specializes in life insurance solutions for high net worth clients. Since that time, we have acquired three more Capitas agencies and have grown the business to approximately $30 million in target premium per year.
We began to support internal call centers that distribute medicare insurance products and have now become a leading distributor of Medicare insurance products. We have since expanded our offerings to include executive benefits and BOLI as well as disability income insurance.
We are the largest distributor of Long Term Care insurance and rank among the market leaders in the life and health insurance distribution market.
We have top contracts with the leading life and health insurance carriers and can offer top compensation to our agents and brokers. UIG operates one of the few existing career Medicare agencies.
We use a multi-channel approach to generating leads for our agents and brokers. Our call center sets appointments for our career Medicare agents.
Our worksite team handles cases on a national basis for many Fortune 500 employers.
We provide cash — up front — through renewal commission purchases, commission heaping and other financing arrangements. We can help you grow, expand, or take your business in a different direction with the cash you need now.
LTC Global management includes some of the most respected names in the life and health insurance industry. We are committed to ensuring that we treat every agent with integrity and respect with the aim of getting you what you need when you need it.
