FIRST Insurance Funding (FIRST) is one of the largest premium finance companies in North America, but the company offers so much more than just premium financing. FIRST is committed to developing custom financing programs that provide a full package of financial services designed for each individual agency.
Premium financing allows businesses to use a loan to cover the cost of insurance premiums, and then spread out the payments, in order to better balance cash flow. But, with more than 25 years in the premium financing industry, FIRST understands what goes in to running an agency and how to serve independent, middle-market insurance agents and brokers with a wide range of financial tools and solutions. FIRST has built a reputation for superior service, innovation and flexibility.
FIRST is Wintrust’s original, oldest and largest niche-lending business. Through that relationship, FIRST can offer additional agency lending options and financial tools. FIRST sets itself apart from competitors by nurturing entrepreneurship, innovation and agency growth and being a true partner to the clients it serves.
FIRST Insurance Funding Life Division (FIRST Life) and FIRST Insurance Funding of Canada (FIRST Canada) are also part of the FIRST family. FIRST Life is the largest traditional life insurance premium finance lender in North America. The division’s lending program enables high-net-worth clients and corporations to obtain life insurance while retaining assets for other investment opportunities.
