Why Investment & Insurance Programs?

Fee Income Opportunity Industry average profit margins for bank investment programs were 26 percent in 2010, according to a study conducted by consultant Ken Kehrer with Kehrer-LIMRA, a research firm specializing in bank distribution of investment and insurance products. By partnering with IBA Securities to develop a customized insurance and investment program, you’ll receive competitive commission payouts with tiered rates based on volume plus low operating expenses. IBA Securities works with you to develop and maintain a program that is cost effective and profitable.

Investment and Insurance Customers Are Desirable According to the MacroMonitor survey conducted by the Consumer Financial Decisions Group of Strategic Business Insights, 39% of households that have purchased an investment or insurance product from their financial institution have between $100,000 and $1 million in investable assets.

Missed Opportunity The MacroMonitor survey showed that more than 50% of U.S. households keep the majority of their savings and investments at a bank or credit union. But among these households, only 15% of them also have a brokerage or insurance relationship with that institution.

Increase Customer Loyalty Evidence has long suggested that the more banking products a household uses, the less likely they are to switch primary financial institutions. Per the MacroMonitor survey, customers who say they would not switch have purchased 50 percent more investment and insurance products where they bank, on average, than customers who would definitely think about switching. This suggests that the investments or insurance relationship has a larger impact on loyalty than the number or type of banking products used.

Customer Trust Already Exists Financial institutions have already developed trust with existing customers. Since trust is critically important in purchasing investments and insurance, banks and credit unions are missing the opportunity by not adding investment and insurance relationships with existing customers.
