LIMRA MythBusters: Separating Distribution Facts from Fiction

10/18/2018 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM
Webinar

Overview

Who Should Watch

This is a LIMRA member benefit webinar. Registration is open to home/corporate office employees of LIMRA member companies. Membership will be verified upon registration.

Highlights

You can't trust everything you hear. Some often-cited facts have been misinterpreted or taken out of context. Add to that the tendency to search for data that supports a preconceived belief, and it is easy to see how some facts have morphed into fiction over time. This webinar will set the record straight by examining some commonly held myths around the distribution of financial services.
