American Business and Underwriting Advocacy

With increasingly complex insurance cases, our extensive knowledge of financial and medical underwriting is critical in ensuring your client gets the best underwriting offer possible.  We specialize in jumbo and impaired risk cases, using our years of underwriting experience and carrier relationships to proactively position the insured in the most favorable light.  We have a proven record of negotiating the best underwriting offers for clients.
Because we believe the one last negotiable piece of life insurance is underwriting, we provide a confidential review of your medical records prior to formally applying for life insurance.  By doing this, we can assess the underwriting risk and address any concerns prior to submitting the case to a carrier, allowing us to determine which carriers will have the most favorable evaluation of the application.

Doug Cashman started underwriting more than 25 years working as a life insurance underwriter for both insurance carriers and brokerage groups.
