• Challenge: Your Life, Your Career, Your World

    Dear Friends,


    On behalf of Auchel World/Grand Prospects, we would like to wish everyone a very happy, safe and prosperous New Year!

    Another difficult but highly successful year 2016 is in the books. However, we only have a very short time to catch our breaths and take our rest as we prepare for our most challenging year 2017. Before we talk about year 2017, let’s review our accomplishments in year 2016. With everyone’s strong support, we were able to increase our domestic business by another 50%, more than doubling our business and once again becoming the top brokerage general agency with multiple carriers. Let’s give ourselves a big round of applause for another job well done!

    Just like previous years, we are witnessing many big changes in the industry. Insurance carriers exit the marketplace and new ones taking their place. Companies are rebranding or restructuring with so many lay offs. New rules and regulations such as California Assembly Bill 2884 have annuity carriers revising their products to meet California standards. Mr. Donald Trump is now President of the United States and his policies could greatly impact the entire financial and insurance services industry, including estate taxes and changes to the DOL fiduciary rule. Last but not least, in 2017 over 50 countries will begin using Common Reporting Standards (CRS). All these changes will affect the way we do business. As professionals, we must continually keep ourselves updated and make the necessary preparations to turn these challenges into opportunities!

    Even though there are so many changes in the industry right now, one thing that will never change is Auchel World/Grand Prospects’ vision and commitment to you, our valued clients, professionals and business partners. You are the most important VIPs to us and we are always doing our best to exceed your expectations with the best service experience and support you truly deserve. Our passion is to help you succeed with your business and you can always trust our slogan: “You do the sales, we do the rest!”

    Our business has grown a lot in 2016! In order to provide even better service to all of our clients and financial professionals, we expanded our headquarters in City of Industry and upgraded of offices in Irvine and Arcadia. In year 2017, the recovering market faces many challenging changes in year 2017 but also brings many chance opportunities for both clients and financial professionals in the financial markets. Yes, the New Year will be very challenging but we have so many great things to look forward to in year 2017!

    Again, we would like to wish everyone a Happy Rooster New Year and recognize everyone for all of your ongoing support and contributions. Our Kickoff Meeting is the first steps toward facing many challenges together in the New Year. Always remember that when there are challenges, there are always opportunities. Let’s get ready to Challenge: Your Life, Your Career and Your World in 2017! Thank you!
