FIRST Insurance Funding

FIRST Insurance Funding (FIRST) is one of the largest premium finance companies in North America, offering property and casualty insurance premium financing to insurance agents and brokers. The company offers even more than premium financing. FIRST is committed to developing custom financing programs that provide a full package of financial services designed for each individual agency.

Premium financing allows businesses to use a short-term loan to cover the cost of insurance premiums, and then spread out the payments, in order to better balance cash flow. With more than 25 years in the premium financing industry, FIRST understands what goes into running an agency and how to serve independent, middle-market insurance agents and brokers with a wide range of financial tools and solutions. FIRST has built a reputation for superior service, innovation and flexibility.

FIRST is Wintrust’s original, oldest and largest niche-lending business. Through that relationship, FIRST can offer additional agency lending options and financial tools. FIRST sets itself apart from competitors by nurturing entrepreneurship, innovation and agency growth and being a true partner to the clients it serves.
