Take the purchase of E&O insurance seriously – it is one of the most important business decisions a professional will make.

Agents have difficulties in mastering the nuances of annuities. Stockbrokers and insurance representatives in banks have jumped onto the annuity bandwagon because their clients want to know about the products, but annuities differ in many ways from the purchase of a stock or a bank CD.

This course seeks to explain the inner workings of annuities in simple language and simple applications.
