About Premium Financing
The goal of premium financing is to alleviate a financial burden for business owners and to provide insurance agencies a catalyst to reach a broader audience with a specific need.
Our Financing Solutions
Imperial PFS offers flexible premium finance lending with multiple benefits for our agency partners and insureds (business owners). As a privately held commercial financing company, and with over 40 years of experience, our Customers get a professional level of care that is unrivaled. Premium finance programs are reliant upon a number of variables, including down payment amounts and the number of payments.
Sample terms for commercial policy financing might be:
- 25% down and nine monthly payments or
- 15% down and 10 monthly payments
We may also be able to offer financing for fully earned policies, audits, bonds, and retrospective rated policies to qualified insureds.
If you are an insurance agent, general agent or insurance company representative, please check out the benefits you can gain by partnering with Imperial PFS.
We have additional information for business owners interested in how a premium finance loan can bring benefits to your business.
A Strategic Partner in Premium Financing
Insurance agents, agencies, and underwriters partner with Imperial PFS to offer financing solutions to business owners seeking insurance coverage. In essence, IPFS becomes the insurance agency’s strategic premium finance partner. As a privately held company, we are able to provide custom solutions to fit the needs of our Customers in ways other lenders can't.
One way we provide a competitive edge is with our quick, easy approval process. As the business agrees on insurance coverage through the agency, a quote is submitted to the premium finance company. Once the terms and payment options are provided to the agency, a premium finance agreement is written. The length of the loan is dependent on several variables, however most of our agreements use a nine or 10 month installment.
Because the purchase of insurance premiums does not require financing, the cost of your desired coverage is the same whether you decide to finance the premium or not.
As we mentioned above, the IPFS approval process is fairly straight forward. One of our goals is to provide a beneficial service to insurance agents in effort to give business owners the commercial insurance coverage they need. After financing over 609,000 loans in 2020 alone, we are confident we can find a solution for you.
