About your Investment Professionals Account
IPI provides you the assurance you need to do business.
Investment Professionals, Inc. clears all securities transactions through Pershing, the largest correspondent clearing firm in the world. Securities accounts held in custody at Pershing receive unlimited account protection. Of this account protection, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) provides $500,000 of coverage, $100,000 of which may be in cash.
The account protection applies when an SIPC member firm fails, but does not protect against losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments.

Permanent Life Insurance
Whether it be protection for your loved ones, estate planning, providing for a spouse not covered by your pension, or charitable giving, most of us have a need for life insurance that will continue our entire life. We go to the marketplace to find the plan, price and guarantees that are best for you.
Long-term Care Insurance
With the escalating costs of home care, long-term care expenses, and nursing homes, planning now can provide you and your family with peace of mind. Long-term Care Insurance helps you protect your assets and maintain your financial security should you need long-term care. If you're in your 40's or 50's, now is the time to consider getting coverage as the annual premiums increase with age. Several options are available to you through Central Investment Services.
Term Life Insurance
Term-life insurance is an excellent way to make sure that your family won't face financial burden should you pass-away prematurely. Term-life provides you with coverage for a specific period of time (10 to 30 years). Premiums usually remain fixed for length of the contract. Benefits are paid if you die during the coverage period.
Life Insurance For Business Owners
For business owners who want to make sure your family is protected in the event of your premature death, we offer "keyman" insurance, "buy-sell" agreements and other policies that will provide you, your family and your business the protection you need.
For a complimentary review of your current policy, no obligation consultation from a fully licensed insurance agent call Marcus Anderson at 731-689-5043 or 731-610-1650.
