What can you guys tell me about Thrivent Financial? Anything would be very appreciated. Thanks
Absolutely don't do it. The business model of softening up congregations and then calling on them makes me sick to my stomach. Also, they have a very limited product line on the investment side.
Just like anything else that someone slaps "Christian" in front of and tries to sell (music, movies, prophylactics, whatever). If you need that sort of differentiator to peddle your product, you obviously aren't competitive in the real market.
I don't mean to be a jerk about it, but I did interview with them extensively when I first made a career change and the more I found out the less I liked them. If you have strong beliefs you don't need to work with a faith based organization to prove it or promote it.
Everyone gets an annuity, regardless of age, income, etc....They have a fairly loyal book, being religion specific and all!
My former assistant's husband was a Lutheran minister. She absolutely agreed with Ron.
RUN! Brand yourself with a more reputable firm and keep the freedom to do what's in your clients best interest.
Merged from Lutherine Brotherhood. Of the dozen or so accounts I've seen, they all have been variable annuities. Most of those same clients bought a LTC policy as well. All I've seen is proprietary products.
