IMSA Certification Enhances HighQuest Partners’ Corporate Governance Offerings (4.25.2005)

HighQuest Partners is pleased to announce that the Insurance Marketplace Standards Association (IMSA) has approved Mr. Thomas Bartlett, CLU, FLMI, as an IMSA Independent Assessor. Tom Bartlett is HighQuest’s Corporate Governance and Compliance Practice Director.

IMSA is an independent organization which promotes high ethical standards in the sale, and service of individually sold life insurance, annuity and long-term care products. For an insurance company to be IMSA certified, the company has to undergo a rigorous assessment of their market conduct practices by an independent third party assessor.

To be approved by IMSA as an independent assessor requires substantial experience in a legal, consulting, auditing, regulatory or internal operating capacity within the life insurance industry. In the US, there are only 44 approved IMSA assessors.

“Tom’s approval as an IMSA Independent Assessor is a great accomplishment for him personally and for HighQuest Partners’ intent to help our clients navigate the difficult waters of achieving IMSA certification at the corporate level. I am confident that our Corporate Governance and Compliance Practice will prove even more useful to leading insurance companies as they seek enhanced ethical standards of conduct in their daily business. Tom’s background and experience at a major insurer in managing the internal IMSA self-assessment will be a reliable and comforting asset to companies undergoing the rigorous IMSA assessment; we all look forward to providing this valuable service to our clients in the near future.” said Greg Mellinger, HighQuest’s CEO and Managing Partner.

Mr. Bartlett is in our New York office and can be reached at 212-682-6500 x302.
