The Difference Between “International” and “Global” Insurance

As I see it, the cutting edge of the insurance industry – primarily the life insurance marketplace – has been “international” coverage. American consulting and brokerage expertise is needed by citizens and residents of other countries, who have a connection to the United States. This connection could be in the form of a business interest, property holdings, or family ties, for example. In special cases, the connection could simply be established by a temporary stay in this country to complete underwriting and paperwork requirements.

But what do you do when the potential client has no connections to the United States, but still needs the assistance of American insurance professionals? There are consultants, brokers, agencies, and companies with businesses based in our country, but with service platforms stretching to other continents. They can provide products to citizens and residents of other countries, competitively priced and providing tremendous value, and in full compliance with all applicable legal and regulatory provisions.

These global cases are the new frontier of our industry – again, in particular, the life insurance marketplace. They are the calling of the Global Insurance Portal.
