The Shank Group, LLC is built on a foundation of integrity and excellence. We believe in being good stewards of our finances and our legacy, and we have faithfully committed ourselves to helping others achieve security and peace of mind in their financial lives.

Our firm and the insurance professionals within the organization are dedicated to the highest standard of integrity. It is our commitment to maintain a duty of loyalty and care to our clients in everything we do. This is important when seeking counsel for your financial well-being and insurance needs because it means we commit to always looking out for your best interest.

The world of insurance is plagued with confusing advice, obscure concepts and terms, and an overall lack of transparency.

At The Shank Group, LLC, we believe in creating TRUST through TRANSPARENCY.

Working with an insurance professional who will act on your behalf can help to eliminate many of the problems associated with commission-oriented, product-focused salespeople. This allows you as the consumer to be in a better position to make an informed decision about what is truly the best approach to protect your family.
