Frost, Mercer Group Announcement

CINCINNATI, Ohio – May 17, 2010 – Frost Financial Services, Inc (Frost) is proud to announce the launch of a new company that will focus on helping credit unions to maximize cross-selling and non-interest income opportunities. Frost has entered into a partnership with industry veteran, David Mercer, to form a new agency called Frost, Mercer Group, LLC.
 
Frost, Mercer Group, LLC
will provide a suite of insurance-based services and products that will enhance credit union revenue growth and provide streamlined product delivery at the member level.  

“We look forward to working with Dave, to leverage his broad credit union experience to better serve the needs of credit unions in today’s tough economic environment,” said Phil Markwell, partner of Frost.  “Dave has a proven track record of helping credit unions utilize technology to streamline and maximize the sale of non-interest income products” he said.
 
The new company has adopted the slogan, “Where independents grow”, which refers not only to credit unions who are willing to take a fresh look at their non-interest income opportunities, but also to the services that Frost, Mercer Group, LLC will deliver to other independent agents in the country who serve the credit union community.
 
“The independent agents who work with credit unions in this country serve an important function,” stated Mercer.  “They work specifically for their credit union clients rather than for a specific insurance company. This allows the agent to structure product combinations that can best serve each credit union’s unique needs. Increased competition has resulted in superior deals for credit unions who demand improved financial performance from their insurance portfolio.”
 
Frost is a leading provider of GAP programs and menu-selling technology to the credit union movement. Frost currently serves more than 950 credit union clients nationwide and their VisualGAP web-based platform has led the market in new innovations for more than 10 years.  The VisualGAP web tool has allowed credit unions to streamline their cross-selling efforts and point of sale packaging of GAP, service contracts and credit insurance/debt cancellation.
 
David Mercer has worked with over 100 credit unions in the last 25 years to develop revenue growth strategies and solutions through the use of menu selling technology and insurance.

 

 

 

 

Win-Win Situation for Credit Union and Member

“We have partnered with Frost Financial Services to offer GAP to our members. This is definitely a win-win situation for the credit union as well as for our members. The credit union receives fee income from the GAP program and we have a member who is great example of how GAP protects our members.

A long-time credit union member purchased GAP on his 1999 Chevy truck, based on his Member Service Representative’s recommendation. When his truck was totaled, the member was “up-side-down” on his loan and would have been forced to pay $5,921 out-of-pocket after his auto insurance settlement.

Frost’s VisualGAP program is the best we’ve found. Once we have a chance to explain to members the benefits and low cost of GAP they are typically eager to purchase the program.”
