First FinancialÂ?s New Online Trading Service Empowers Individual Investors

Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) August 10, 2004

First Financial Design, Inc. has launched a new online trading service that allows customers to be personally involved in their stock market transactions without compromising on quality or safety.

The service offers online trading for as low as $ 9.95 per trade. A unique aspect of the new service is the way it provides individual investors with access to a wealth of information and tools usually available only to professional traders and market makers. Clients can also opt for First FinancialÂ?s personalized execution of their trades.

First FinancialÂ?s online trading software provides individual investors with access to sophisticated risk management and program trading tools, including a unique Â?Trailing StopÂ? feature, which works like an intelligent and dynamic Stop Loss order.

Â?Say you buy a stock at $ 25 and want to limit your risk to a 50-cent loss,Â? explains McCulley. Â?Instead of placing a Stop Order at $ 24.50, you can place a Trailing Stop of 50 cents. If the stock falls by 50 cents in your absence, an order to sell is sent automatically,Â? he says. Â?On the other hand, if your stock rallies to $ 30, your Trailing Stop automatically gets reset to $ 29.50. If the stock starts to fall from the $ 30 level, the market order to sell is sent automatically when the price reaches $ 29.50. So, your gain is maintained even if you are not at your computer!Â?

The new online trading service supplements a wide array of services under the First Financial umbrella. With over $ 50 million under management, First Financial specializes in retirement, tax and estate planning.

With its latest offering, First Financial brings its unique brand of local, personalized service to the world of online trading. Â?Since we understand that one financial decision can effectively change a dozen more, we leave no stone unturned in identifying potential problems for our clients and creating the right solutions for them,Â? says McCulley.

By becoming one of the first financial planning companies to offer online trading services, First Financial continues its tradition of being several steps ahead of the competition. Another recent addition is a new insurance division, providing life, health and long-term health care cover and annuities.

First Financial utilizes the services of an in-house insurance specialist, Janie Meyers, as well as those of customer-care executive Jan Smith. The company also has on tap a wide network of expert planners, attorneys and CPAs to help solve specialized problems for its clients.

About First Financial Design, Inc.

InsureMe Provides Tips for Online Insurance Shopping

Denver, Colo. (PRWEB) April 25, 2006

According to a recent Forrester Research study, over 28 percent of households use the Internet during the insurance shopping process. With that number on the rise, InsureMe, a leading online insurance shopping service, is highlighting Web shopping tips for consumers wishing to take care of their insurance needs online.

While premium affordability still remains on the forefront for insurance shoppers, the InsureMe company stresses the importance of considering site security, customer service ratings and financial solidity when shopping online for insurance.

Because insurance plans and requirements vary from state to state, the company recommends researching coverage options by visiting the state Department of Insurance (DOI) online, or browsing InsureMe’s informational state articles. The articles are available at

Once consumers know what kind of coverage they need, they can visit one of the many sites on the Web that allows shoppers to obtain and compare free insurance quotes. But not all sites are created equal, according to InsureMe President, Tim McTavish.

“Consumers should always verify a Web site’s security measures by looking for a ‘seal of approval’ or clickable logo from a security technology company,” states McTavish. “Highly-regarded companies are often approved by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and will display the BBB logo on their homepage.”

Consumers should also investigate insurance companies and agents by checking customer service ratings and financial solidity through rating companies like A.M. Best and Weiss Ratings before buying a policy.

“Many consumers underestimate the value of good customer service and proven financial strength,” says McTavish. “The most affordable insurance in the state won’t do much good if you can’t contact your agent or the company can’t pay your claim.”

As with all forms of online shopping, InsureMe advocates consumer education as the best line of defense. By verifying the security and the legitimacy of the insurance-related sites and companies, consumers can find the right insurance for the right price.

About InsureMe:

InsureMe, an Englewood, Colorado-based company, links agents nationwide with consumers shopping for insurance. The company’s professional network consists of both independent local insurance agents and representatives from national insurance partners.

With the hustle and bustle of every day life, people are too busy with their daily activities to run around from insurance company to insurance company searching for that perfect policy or getting Colorado Insurance Quotes that would fit into their budget. Not only would this be a time consuming venture, but it would be simple pointless if the individual had no idea what type of automobile insurance policy they were really looking for. This is not the best way to shop for automobile insurance, but there is a much better way to do this. In fact, there are several price comparison websites that are now available to help individual who are looking to not only compare Colorado Insurance Quotes, but to also compare the policies as well. These price comparison websites give individuals the opportunity to compare these policies side-by-side, which enable them to get a much better view at what insurance company is giving them the best offer. The need to travel around town to each insurance company is no longer necessary since individuals have the ability to get their Colorado Insurance Quotes from the privacy of their own home or office. Locating an insurance company within your local area through one of these pricing comparison sites will not be that difficult. This is especially true if you select an insurance company who is rather well known. Too many times, individuals take the cheap way out and go with an insurance company who offers them cheap premiums. The major problem with this is that if these insurance companies are not well known, then they may also not be legitimate. There are many individuals who run scams in the most particular ways and this is only one of them. People will pay for their premiums with credit cards to a company that does not exist, while not only risking their safety for identity theft, but also losing their money paying on insurance premiums that do not exist. When using a pricing comparison website be sure the information the website is getting is accurate by checking them out first. You can also check out the insurance companies with the Better Business Bureau at their on-line website. Getting an on-line Colorado Insurance Quote does not have to a hassle if the individual takes precautions and knows what they are doing. Just because an insurance company is offering the best price on an insurance premium does not necessary make it the best price. When searching for Colorado Insurance Quotes while having a child to add to your policy can be quite nerve racking. A child under the age of twenty-four is going to make your premiums be higher than they normal would, because this happens to be the age group that have the most car accidents. As a parent, that definitely does not make you feel comfortable, but it does explain the higher premium cost. Colorado Insurance Rates will vary depending on the discounts that an individual may qualify for. For instance, if an individual lives in an area that have a low percentage of crime rate, then they might possible qualify for a discount since their neighborhood would be considered safe and there would be a lot less fewer costs for the insurance company. Individuals need to see what discounts they qualify for prior to purchasing their automobile insurance. For more information visit:

At we know that getting a quality Colorado Insurance Quote can mean the difference of getting a good or bad deal on Colorado Insurance. Which is why we here at Colorado Insurance Quote have teamed up with major insurance carriers and agents that will offer consumers up to five competitive Colorado Insurance Quotes.

InsureMe Offers Tips for Online Health Insurance Shopping

Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 21, 2006

With the nation’s uninsured at an estimated 45 million adults, InsureMe, the leading online insurance shopping service, is offering tips for using the Web to find health insurance that’s both affordable and provides sufficient coverage.

Before applying for health insurance quotes, InsureMe recommends looking into the types of health plans that are available, as well as identifying the coverages that the consumer needs from a policy, such as coverage for pre-existing or chronic conditions.

“Knowing what you need from the outset will help you find the right policy—and quicken the insurance shopping process,” says InsureMe president and former insurance agent, Tim McTavish.

Shoppers can find the health insurance information they need by visiting the InsureMe Insurance Resource Center, which contains health insurance information as it pertains to each state.

Comparing multiple policies and plan prices is also central to finding the right insurance; online insurance shopping services like now allow consumers to apply online and receive free health insurance quotes from local insurance agents. And while price is foremost on the minds of many shoppers, the company also encourages people to pay careful attention to plan coverages before selecting a policy.

“Shoppers should always make sure that a policy protects them from major medical expenses like surgery and emergency care,” adds McTavish. “Medical debt still accounts for about half of all personal bankruptcies in this country.”

While coverage of major medical expenses should be top priority when it comes to shopping for health insurance, shoppers should also identify their personal medical needs and evaluate policy coverages accordingly.

Among coverages to look for, consumers should see if a policy covers:

    Inpatient hospital services

    Office and physician visits

    Preventative care and check-ups

    Maternity and infant care

    Medical tests and x-rays

    Prescription drugs

    Mental health services

    Substance abuse treatment

    Speech and physical therapy

    Pre-existing conditions of plan members

Once a consumer has decided on a policy, it’s important to ask the agent about a “free look period.” Free look periods allow consumers to return the policy and receive a full refund if the policy doesn’t meet expectations. Depending on the state, free look periods extend from 10 to 30 days after the policy has been signed.

In addition to the Insurance Resource Center, insurance shoppers can find more information about health insurance and insurance-related topics at the InsureMe Insurance Blog, which is updated daily with insurance news and shopping tips.

About InsureMe:

InsureMe, an Englewood, Colorado-based company, links agents nationwide with consumers shopping for insurance. InsureMe desires an open dialog with customers and hosts several blogs to encourage a free flow of information about the industry and the InsureMe company. InsureMe has helped millions of consumers find insurance coverage, while providing thousands of insurance agents with leads nationwide. For more information, visit or

What actually happens is that the customer’s information is sold as a ‘lead’ to up to eight insurance sales agents and the onslaught of calls and emails begins.”

Because was committed to providing the best possible customer-centered experience, they teamed up with ComparisonMarket (CM), the largest online auto insurance agency in the United States. This partnership allows to provide fast, accurate, unbiased, bindable auto insurance quotes from top carriers within about 45 seconds. It effectively gives a staff of licensed agents in 47 states who can write policies, provide 24/7 customer service, offer phone support, and access to real-time quotes from over 13 national carriers, such as Progressive, Esurance, AIG and The Hartford.
