Wescom Financial Services and Simplicity Life have formed a strategic partnership to enhance, expand, and provide more insurance sales support for Wescom Financial Services Advisors and Member Services Representatives. Wescom Financial Services went through an extensive RFP and search process in the latter half of 2018 to determine which industry partner would best support their ever-expanding investment program.
Through this search, Wescom Financial Services has selected Simplicity Life to be their exclusive third party provider of fixed and index annuities.
“Aligning with Simplicity Life will allow the Wescom Financial Services Advisors and Member Services Representatives to leverage the industry leading platform Simplicity Life has built for the financial institution channel over the past twenty years. Simplicity Life will provide onsite wholesaling support, in person and virtual training, support of marketing and outreach to existing and new Wescom Financial Services account holders in addition to back-office support in streamlining the sales process,” said Jonathon Allen, President, Wescom Financial Services.
“Wescom is a highly respected program in the institutional space, and very unique in that the Credit Union owns its own Broker Dealer. The platform program that Wescom has cultivated over the past two decades is second to none, and the advisors are all top performers. Wescom’s culture of service and excellence fits well with the Simplicity Life service model and we feel fortunate to be involved with such an exceptional organization,” said Heidi Williams, Vice President, Simplicity Life
