Distributors launches YouTube Channel

CINCINNATI – July 6, 2016 – Equipping financial representatives with a new digital resource, W&S Financial Group Distributors, Inc., wholesale distributor of annuities and life insurance from Western & Southern Financial Group (Western & Southern) member companies, has launched a YouTube channel. “Financial representatives are eager to build client understanding of today’s abundance of information,” said Mark E. Caner, president, W&S Financial Group Distributors. “Because the brain processes visual information more efficiently than text, we believe these videos provide a valuable tool to help financial representatives enhance client understanding of key planning concepts.”

W&S Financial Group Distributors’ YouTube channel advances the company’s mission – helping Americans invest, protect and manage risk for their retirement and legacy – while also highlighting the strength of Western & Southern. The channel includes:

  • Three retirement-oriented videos about Social Security strategies and single premium immediate annuities
  • Two legacy-oriented videos about insurance for the living and insurance for new parents, and
  • Four videos about Western & Southern highlighting the company’s financial strength, its corporate philanthropy and the Western & Southern Open

New content will be added regularly to the channel, including three videos featuring Western & Southern spokesperson Cris Collinsworth discussing life insurance and retirement income concepts.
