Unlike some competitors, we offer a plethora of training programs,

on-site mentoring and digital development to set you up for success.

ANK Education & Training

Access Plus

While the majority of the business our members write is through direct appointments, members can also submit accounts through the ANK Access Plus department. Members can quote and bind policies with almost every carrier that partners with ANK. This provides a member the ability to win accounts they may lose otherwise, but also provides an opportunity for a member to get direct appointments by demonstrating production. This is all done at a compensation split that is higher than the typical wholesale solution.

Examples of things they have repeatedly helped Members with include; 5 year performance projections based on your goals, Foundation training from Captive to IA, new hire training, on-site mentoring and consulting, etc. 

Digital Training
