A Chartered Life Underwriter® (CLU®) and member the Million Dollar Round Table, he maintains the highest standards of professional competence and gives the best possible advice to clients by seeking to maintain and improve professional knowledge, skills and competence.

While designing financial plans for clients of Ian and Jonathan at Ian C Moyer Insurance Agency, Keifer built and maintained a number of financial calculators and illustrators for various individual concepts. Keifer wanted to save the time of cobbling together results from these calculators with other third party software, whose output formats often-times did not match. So, the team sought to create their own full-suite financial planning solution within an industry-standard application, Excel, and so Cascades was born. Cascades has been developed, enhanced and streamlined into the professional-quality solution offered today.
HiveLink are a small group of former Microsoft developers and engineering/industry consultants. They had been working together to solve their own IP-protection and client/web automation problems. They developed their solution into HiveLink and now allow anyone to use the service from their home or office. Our Cascades solution uses HiveLink as a secure and rapid way to allow brokers to remotely calculate their data and send and receive it from within Excel.
