NEW YORK – November 18, 2022 – NFP, a leading property and casualty broker, benefits consultant, wealth manager and retirement advisor, today announced a joint venture with Fieldtech, LLC (Fieldtech), a digital life and individual disability insurance platform that delivers the first cloud-based operating system for institutional and career agency distribution channels. The platform features an operating system (OS) that provides standardization of workflows and data science capabilities for the benefit of all parties involved in life and individual disability insurance transactions.
“Our joint venture with Fieldtech reflects our commitment to innovations that enhance both the distribution of insurance products and the experience for clients and industry professionals,” said Mike Goldman, president and COO of NFP. “With our collective expertise, including our insight on where improvements are needed most, we are helping to empower institutional and career agency stakeholders to modernize the way life insurance products are bought and sold.”
To reshape the captive agent of the future in a way that better aligns with the dynamic needs of life insurance buyers and the experience clients want, Fieldtech OS offers:
- Streamlined collaboration and automated workflows to allow advisors to focus on client service while enabling leading back-office support
- Automated processes with licensing and compliance built into workflows to supercharge client service and case management teams
- Robust business intelligence and reporting tools to help agency leadership gain key insight into business, make informed decisions, and mentor producers through complex cases
“Leadership is about never settling for the status quo, and this joint venture with Fieldtech is another component of our continuous efforts to transform the insurance industry,” said Mike James, NFP’s chief sales officer. “Our deep footprint, expertise and relationships strengthen our shared vision for growing Fieldtech’s impact for institutional and career agency systems and the clients they serve.”

The duo is actively growing their team of ten, with plans to double headcount in the next 12 months.
