Key Quotes:

  • “We got into corporate financial planning strategies, retirement plans, defined benefit plans, deferred comp, you name it, executive benefits. And in the process of doing this and doing some planning for some, some prospects and clients, we saw captive insurance companies cropping up, more and more it was becoming something either business owners had, or they wanted to see or wanted to learn more about.” – Jarid Beck
  • “We like to do things in phases, you know, hey, let’s phase one, phase two, phase three, and let’s tackle it over, you know, over a period of months or years, and then you know, have a smooth glide path, then you get down the road and you’re like now we’ve got a program that does everything we want” – Jarid Beck
