Broad footprint allows company to expand bank and credit union relationships

(East Hartford, CT) – Vantis Life Insurance Company announced today that it has been admitted to 49 states, recently adding New Mexico, Nebraska and Nevada.  Gaining admittance to the state of New York is now a focus for the Company, which distributes life insurance and annuity products through financial institutions. 

“Having access to 49 states is important to our overall business plan,” noted Craig Simms, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Vantis Life.  ”This expanded footprint allows us to expand existing bank and credit union relationships that have large regional and sometimes national footprints.  It also positions us well to accelerate discussions with larger prospective partners and introduce them to our exclusive online life insurance quote and e-application program.”

Vantis Life had been domiciled only in Connecticut until 2002, when it began its expansion program.  The Company now distributes its products through 25 bank partners in Connecticut and an additional 15 banks and credit unions in 30 states.
