NAIFA Announces Partnership with InsurTech Express
November 13, 2019 by NAIFA
The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) named InsurTech Express to its list of supporters of its Limited & Extended Care Planning Center (LECP). The LECP is NAIFA’s initiative to bring together a variety of entities that offer products and services that showcase the continuum of options for limited, extended and long-term care needs. The announcement was made on the opening day of the NAILBA’s Annual Meeting held in Dallas, Texas.
InsurTech Express is the brainchild of Ken Leibow, CEO and Founder, who is a long-time member of NAILBA and subject matter expert in insurance technology. After many years of serving on technical committees for insurance associations, Leibow decided to establish InsurTech Express to serve as a resource for advisors who work in life insurance and annuities. “Our vision of InsurTech Express is an online network that provides educational information on solution platforms and tech trends that is easy-to-understand by advisors and that we promote technology solutions that focus on ease-of-use” explained Leibow. The online network is comprised of carriers, distributors, solution providers, associations and conferences. “The insurance and financial industry is only going to continue to become increasingly technology-driven and InsurTech Express will be there to help advisors transition to new ways of working.”
NAIFA chose InsurTech Express as a supporter of the LECP due to this forward-thinking, technology-driven viewpoint on insurance. “We wanted to help pair disruptive technology with proactive, positive analogue needs found within this generational extended and long term care challenge that we will all inevitably face,” explained Carroll Golden, Executive Director of NAIFA’s LECP. “We look to InsurTech Express to provide insight on how digital transformation is affecting the long-term care industry. We know that everything will change with the adoption of our InsurTech Express Blockchain, artificial intelligence and robotics, and we know Ken Leibow is a strong supporter of moving our niche industry forward.”
Leibow’s work and long-time active participation in NAILBA garnered him a NAILBA ID Twenty Award. The inaugural award showcases trailblazers in the industry and created an opportune time to announce the new partnership. “We applaud Ken on his award and prodigious work throughout the years to advance the concept of insurtech,” stated Kevin Mayeux, CEO of NAIFA. “We are delighted that we are all together at NAILBA to celebrate both Ken’s accomplishments and our new partnership.”
Founded in 1890, NAIFA is the oldest, largest and most prestigious association representing the interests of financial services professionals from every Congressional district in the United States. Our mission – to advocate for a positive legislative and regulatory environment, enhance business and professional skills, and promote the ethical conduct of its members – is the reason NAIFA has consistently and resoundingly stood up for financial services professionals and called upon members to grow their knowledge while following the highest ethical standards in the industry.
