  • The Ohlson Group, Inc Acquires Controlling Interest of SafeMoneyPlaces.com

    November 17, 2011 by Terri Gearlds

    November 15, 2011

    Carmel, IN –  Raymond J. Ohlson, CLU, CRC, President and CEO of The Ohlson Group, announces that SMP International, LLC, has acquired www.safemoneyplaces.com.    The Ohlson Group, a national insurance marketing and consulting firm, has majority ownership and management control of SMP International LLC.  Jack Marrion, founder of Safe Money Places, remains as a consultant with the company. “Jack Marrion and I have been friends for many years,” Ohlson explains.  “He developed an extremely educational, vibrant, and robust website for the consumer looking for ‘safe money’ information. We intend to continue in that same vein with Jack’s participation and consultation.  We are extremely excited about this venture!”  Marrion explains that he and Ohlson “share a common desire to inform consumers.”

    When compared with other financial sites available to consumers, the “new” safemoneyplaces.com differs greatly.  According to Ohlson, “This site is dedicated to safe money concepts and products only.  We will not be providing any investment, tax or legal advice.”

    Ohlson also believes they are creating an additional financial services distribution model. “We are creating a network of ‘Safe Money’ agents through The Ohlson Group. Many are comparing this to a ReMax™ or Century 21™ in the safe money insurance based business.”

    Given recent economic turmoil in America and around the world, consumers are more inclined to search for information on safe places to deploy their money.  Furthermore, independent financial professionals need the kind of training and back-up support Ohlson and his company have been known for throughout his career.  “We are extremely education-oriented in every area of our business,” Ohlson adds.  “As the average age of financial professionals continues to increase, younger agents especially need the training that both Jack and our seasoned pros can provide.  Today, consumers won’t settle for a brochure and a phone call.  They expect specific answers to their questions in a timely manner from someone they can trust.  By establishing this network of ‘safe money agents’ and our new website, consumers will have access to absolutely the best, most accurate information available anywhere in the country.”

    In addition to the Safe Money Places concept, Ohlson has added sections on “Risk Money Places” and Life Insurance because, as he explains, “American consumers need to see the big picture – they need to understand how to balance all of their needs and dreams with a carefully developed plan that fits their goals.  To make this happen, they need solid information.”

    If you are an independent agent, Ohlson urges you to visit www.safemoneyplaces.com and then contact him at 1-877-844-0900 to see if you can join the network of Safe Money Places agents.  “All of our associates will have access to a long list of services that will help them increase their bottom line while offering their clients better service.”  These services include, for example, training workshops and webinars, materials, direct mail pieces, national advertising, and more.
