NATSD and PolicyFlex Announce Agreement

National Advisors Trust of South Dakota to act as administrative trustee for PolicyFlex's Term Extension program.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- National Advisors Trust of South Dakota (NATSD), a leading professional trust company providing comprehensive trust and trustee services to independent investment advisors, and PolicyFlex LLC, a firm dedicated to providing innovative insurance solutions, announced an agreement whereby NATSD is acting as administrative trustee for PolicyFlex's Term Extension program. The Term Extension program (patent pending) enables individuals over the age of 60, who have term life insurance, to extend their coverage affordably instead of letting the policies lapse at the end of the term. 

"We are delighted to work together with PolicyFlex to expand the scope of creative financial solutions for older Americans and support the program with trustee services from NATSD," said John Abbuhl, Senior Sales Executive of NATSD. "The Term Extension program is valuable in helping retirees maximize their estate and legacy. As such, it's highly relevant to our advisors' clients at a time when retirement planning is so challenging." 

PolicyFlex's Term Extension program costs significantly less than other available options, and the existing carrier remains the same. Available for people age 60 and older for policies with a face amount of $500,000 to $3,000,000, the program provides for fixed level payments, no health exam for approval, no financial requirements and no upfront fees.

According to Martin Levion, Managing Partner of PolicyFlex, "This is an ideal fit for our program given NATSD's excellent reputation, national presence, and strong management team. The firm's advanced operational platform and high level of automation enable us to offer Term Extension efficiently and cost-effectively to retiring baby boomers."

"PolicyFlex is an important new client relationship for NATSD as we continue to progress in achieving our strategic objectives for the first year of operation," commented Jim Combs, CEO of National Advisors Holdings, Inc. "We are pleased to provide PolicyFlex access to our network of over 150 independent RIAs and their clients who can benefit from the Term Extension program."

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management.
