16 Role: To Help People Insurance is a wonderful and much needed product. Insurance, at its core, is a pooling of community risks. It is a formalized way for people to come together and help each other. When we pay life insurance premiums, we are putting our money together, not just to help ourselves but also to help other families. When someone else dies, his family benefits because a payment can be made from this pool of premiums and the investment income that arises from it. When we die, our claim is paid to our family, from the same pool. People, in more informal ways, have done this for centuries. When someone dies, those remaining help the family. This may appear very basic, but insurance is much more powerful than just survivor benefits. Both individuals and businesses depend on the insurance product to provide essential services and protect them from financial disaster. Source: Ethics & Health Benefit Law Update – #1007525  2010

19 I will work hard to assess each client's individual needs. I will always try to keep the client's best interest in mind. I will clearly explain each financial strategy or product. I will take the time to set expectations with each client concerning how often they wish to be contacted. I will keep clients informed and updated on their accounts regardless of their account / billing level I will keep my promise to provide ongoing service to help my clients meet their long-term goals. I will treat clients the way I want to be treated. I know that the only winning business strategy is to give clients the best service and show that I care. Source: Axa Advisors, LLC
