PINNACLE INSURANCE & FINANCIAL SERVICES Pinnacle IFS is a Jacksonville, FL based Brokerage General Agency (BGA). It was founded by insurance industry veterans who recognized the changing landscape of insurance distribution. Virtually every insurance company has demutualized and eliminated their career agency system over the past three decades. That means insurance is now distributed by other financial professionals like Financial Advisors and Wealth Managers, who largely focus on investments and don’t have the necessary expertise to fully advise on insurance.

Pinnacle partners with these financial professionals (B2B) and also sells directly to individual (B2C) and businesses (B2B), from a totally independent, consultative perspective. Staffed with resources in all phases of Case Design, Advanced Markets, Case Management, Licensing/Contracting and Underwriting, Pinnacle and our 30+ insurance company partners present the best product solutions to meet a variety of insurance needs for: Family Risk Management, Wealth Transfer/Estate Planning, Business Planning, and Retirement Planning.
