August 2019 Newsletter
This month, we announced a new partnership with Radius Bank, our first federally chartered bank partner. We’re passionate about making it easy for people to get the coverage they need wherever they are. Thanks to Radius Bank, life insurance through Ladder is now accessible from the Radius Bank mobile app and website.
In other news, Ladder was named a winner of Real Simple’s 2019 Smart Money Awards in the insurance category. The awards looked at the best new financial tools and were assessed by a panel of experts, including HerMoney founder Jean Chatzky and author of The Latte Factor David Bach.
Next up – are you a financial advisor or know someone who is? The Ladder for Advisors program was recognized as an “interesting new channel” for advisors in a new episode of the Financial Advisor Success podcast by host Michael Kitces featuring Douglas Boneparth, author of The Millennial Money Fix and President of Bone Fide Wealth. Listen in as Kitces and Boneparth discuss their thoughts on Ladder.
Lastly, our CEO Jamie Hale was featured in award-winning financial planner Jason Pereira’s Fintech Impact podcast. In the episode, Jamie explains how we address pain points in the industry, how we handle underwriting, and how we are working to make life insurance more accessible in the workplace space.
