- Aging Baby Boomers: The area in which the Company will operate has a significant population of baby boomers. This generation is rapidly approaching their retirement age, and has a great deal of disposable or discretionary income. After experiencing a life of great financial prosperity, these are often married couples or empty nesters. They seek to ensure that their own nest eggs will support the lifestyle they want to live after they stop working, and that their wealth will be preserved appropriately for future generations of family members. These customers typically have extensive networks of individuals in similar economic circumstances, and as such will be an excellent source of referrals.

By offering a convenient location, effective advertising, and a strong product mix, the Company will draw in a significant crowd of professionals with rising earning power, who wisely seek to manage their money for the future.
- Young parents: There is a growing population of young parents with small children in the Company’s immediately surrounding area. These people will seek solutions to provide for the future economic well-being of their new families, purchasing services such as life insurance.
