ESI Story

ESI Story

"2020 is behind us.  Still, we live in a very volatile environment. For most of us it is less about physical conflicts across the pond and more about the challenges we face here at home: a secure retirement, our child’s college fund, a plan to maintain a good lifestyle.  We are here to support you in accomplishing this mission for your clients, as we have been since 1968. Working together, we believe that we can create confidence in the financial future for you and your clients."

- Ata Azarshahi, President and Chief Executive Officer 

ESI was founded in 1968, making us part of National Life Group’s rich history dating back to 1848. The National Life Group cause is simple: to do good in our communities and with the individual families we serve.

As the Broker-Dealer and Registered Investment Adviser for a mutual life insurance company, we have a unique view of the business and an understanding of how investments and fixed financial solutions work together. We also recognize the importance of flexibility in affiliation options and solutions. At ESI, we encourage you to dream big, and we respect that your clients are just that -your clients.

They all have goals and dreams, and they all have people they love. So, if you are passionate about helping people with their financial goals, we want to talk with you.
