Background philosophy

Global Institutional Solutions provides high-touch, personal services for the benefit of insurance carriers and financial institutions.

These problems are normally time-consuming, costly, and highly frustrating.

About Us
Our pledge

We'll consider any comments or suggestions you share. We're known for being good listeners. Frankly, listening is the only way we know to identify and assess your needs. And after all, helping folks solve perplexing problems is our mission. Our product development team is well-known for creating cuttingedge solutions that benefit of our partner-institutions. These institutions have relied on our timeliness and innovation to service their policyholders, depositors, and members for over a decade. Ten years of listening taught many valuable lessons. Yet, one stands above all others: People facing complicated and stressful problems embrace personal advocacy assistance. Certainly, the experience is more palatable when the advocate is courteous and empathetic. But there is also a strong sense of empowerment: The customer is confident that a highly experienced specialist, well-versed in the required problem solving process, stands shoulder-to-shoulder with them throughout resolution. This relationship is most successful if access to the advocate is unlimited and without annoying time constraints. Competitors argue that our customer philosophy is old-school. But when personal advocacy is supercharged with modern, problem-solving technologies, our customers benefit from extraordinary effectiveness.
