Founded in 1851, MassMutual is a leading mutual life insurance company that is run for the benefit of its members and participating policyholders. The company has a long history of financial strength and strong performance and, although dividends are not guaranteed, MassMutual has paid dividends to eligible participating policyholders every year since the 1860s. With whole life insurance as its foundation, MassMutual also provides products to help meet the financial needs of clients, such as life insurance, disability income insurance, long term care insurance, retirement/401(k) plan services and annuities. In addition, the company’s strong and growing network of financial professionals help clients make good financial decisions for the long term.
The person hired will work with individuals and business owners with their insurance and investment planning by building a long-term relationship and a consultative partnership. A strategic marketing plan, to be approved by the Sales Manager, will be built within the first month to identify 400 prospects in Maricopa County and then narrowed down to the top 50 prospects in the next month. Typical forms of prospecting include networking, referrals, and community involvement. After securing a meeting, time is taken to learn about the potential client’s current financial situation and future objectives (i.e. expand practice, retain key employees, exit the business) and create client-centric solutions with a team of insurance, investment, tax and legal professionals in the local office to achieve the clients’ goals. You will revisit the client’s portfolio of products and services purchased, at least annually, to ensure the plans are on track with expectations. Associates are expected schedule 20 new appointments per week and accumulate 100 new clients in one year, representing 18% of the expected total growth of the local office. Typical measures implemented include retention strategies (key-person insurance), succession planning, employee benefit programs to attract great talent, executive compensation to reward decision makers, estate planning strategies to keep as much cash in the business and minimization of the impact of taxes for sustainability and growth of the organization. A consultative approach to working with prospective clients is essential to build trust, as is an ability to encourage movement on implementing ideas presented.
