Premium Financing for Agents
The Insurance Industry's Solution to Premium Financing
With over 40 years in the insurance premium finance industry, Imperial PFS provides a level of Customer service that promotes excellence.

As a strategic premium financing partner, we are able to provide custom technological integrations into existing platforms for insurance firms and agents. Our creative service offerings include numerous program options designed to benefit both insurance agencies and general agents. IPFS’ size and independence provides financial strength and flexibility to handle all of your accounts, ranging from large, complex relationships to smaller, more routine engagements. In 2020, we financed more than 609,000 loans across North America, totaling more than $12 billion in premiums in the US alone.
Technology and Custom Integrations
In the 1970s we relied primarily on a computer and a printer. Business was more two-dimensional in those days, however the market has evolved. With today’s technological options, we are able to provide a vastly greater service to our customers in a multi-dimensional digital world. New technology is an aspect of business which has opened a door of possibility. Insurance agencies throughout the U.S. market utilize software that is as unique as they are. When creating custom integration platforms, we knew we had to cater to all agents’ needs. Through our IPFS Connect mobile app, the ipfs.com website, and in-house custom integrations, we have built a suite of services centered around confidence. Read more below:
