Mini PFA - May 2019
Back in May, Verite and Lion Street had the privilege of Symetra sponsoring a mini PFA. The event was held at the Sun Trust Park in Atlanta. Following a presentation from Michael Seltzer on premium finance, Matt Levesque of Symetra spoke about the benefits of financing the Symetrica IUL product. After the presentations were completed the group adjourned to a private suite to enjoy cocktails, dinner and a great Atlanta Brave’s baseball game. Representing Lion Street were David Herrick, Brian Bonafant and Chris Dunham. Thank you to Symetra for putting a great day together.
