Long-Standing Agency Joins Global Network of Independent Employee Benefits Advisory Firms

United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the nation’s leading independent employee benefits advisory organization, is pleased to welcome Winter-Dent & Company as its newest Partner Firm. Based in Jefferson City, Missouri, their core philosophy is to strive from day one to become a client's most trusted advisor regardless of whether that client is a business, a family, or an individual.  With its origins dating back to 1912, Winter-Dent & Company has specialized service divisions in insurance and risk, bonds, employee benefits, and financial services. While one of the largest regional agencies, their core philosophy of “serving the client first” and “never forgetting their roots” distinguishes them in their service areas and in the industry as a whole.

Jim Neuner, Vice President, Employee Benefits & Financial Services at Winter-Dent & Company said, “We are excited to partner with UBA.  At Winter Dent & Company, our clients are the purpose of our work and by partnering with UBA, we will be able to enhance the services and products that we provide to our clients.”

To further help differentiate themselves from the competition, Winter-Dent & Company developed sophisticated cost reduction strategies that go far above and beyond the basic "comprehensive insurance coverage at a competitive premium" insurance placement.  Known as the “Winter-Dent Difference,” many of their long-term clients will speak to the fact that these cost reduction strategies have helped them dramatically reduce their cost of insurance over the years they’ve been together, as well as their out-of-pocket cost of retained losses, loss of productivity and regulatory burden. Cost reduction begins with a well-designed coverage program and a quality insurance placement. Winter-Dent & Company has invested in a service structure specifically designed to engage with their clients and lower their total cost of risk, including insurance premiums, over time.

“Winter-Dent & Company is truly an excellent addition to UBA.  Not only is their experience beneficial to our organization, but their corporate philosophies of serving the client first and reducing total cost of insurance puts them on par with the other Partner Firms that make UBA such an outstanding organization,” said UBA CEO Les McPhearson.  “I look forward to the collaborative efforts they will be able to share with our Partners so that all our agencies grow in this ever-changing landscape of insurance.”

As the newest Partner Firm of UBA, Winter-Dent & Company joins a network of employee benefits advisory firms that serve employers of all sizes across the United States, Canada, and Europe. As a combined group, UBA’s annual employee benefit revenues rank it among the top five employee benefit advisory organizations in the U.S.
