The goal of premium financing is twofold. Business owners can alleviate the financial burden associated with paying a lump sum for their insurance premium, and insurance agents can reach a broader audience with specific insurance needs.
Our Financing Solutions
IPFS offers flexible premium financing with multiple benefits for our agencies and the business owners they insure. Benefits include: immediate commission collection, superior account receivable ratios, reduced billing expenses, enhanced service for your customers, increased annual income, and much more.
As a privately held premium financing company, and with over 45 years of experience, our customers receive an unrivaled level of professional care and service. Premium finance programs rely on a range of variables, including down payment amounts and the number of payments. For qualified insureds, we may be able to offer financing for fully earned policies, audits, bonds, and retrospective rated policies.
Sample terms for commercial policy financing might be:
25% down and 9 monthly payments or
15% down and 10 monthly payments

A Strategic Ally in Premium Financing
Insurance agents, agencies, and underwriters collaborate with IPFS to offer financing solutions to business owners seeking insurance coverage. As a privately held company, IPFS is able to provide custom solutions to fit the needs of our customers in ways other lenders cannot.
One way we provide a competitive edge is with our quick, easy approval process with competitive rates and terms.
Because the purchase of insurance premiums does not require financing, the cost of the desired coverage is the same whether your policyholder decides to finance the premium or not.
Loan length depends on several variables. Typical agreements use a nine- or ten-month installment.
We truly believe we have the best customers in the industry. We work hard to individually cater to specific needs for small, medium, and large companies including General Insurance Agents, Managing General Insurance Agents, Captives, and Carriers.
