INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - Insurance agency owners interested in learning about different ways to structure and finance their agency succession plan should attend the "Capital Options & Succession Planning" session at the Target Markets TMPAA Summit, being held October 21-23 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Presenter Todd Gray, CFO of Oak Street Funding (, will cover succession options available to agency owners, detailing the pros and cons of each. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of which option best fits their needs. The presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, October 23 at 11 am.

"Agency owners are confused about how to plan for a succession and many think the only options are to sell the agency or do nothing," said Gray. "In reality, there are many options open to agency owners who either want to sell or perpetuate their businesses, and the process doesn't have to be complicated. This is an important issue to address."

Oak Street Funding, the nation's leading lender for insurance professionals, will have a team focused exclusively on strategic markets at the summit. In addition to exhibiting, they will take confidential, one-on-one appointments to discuss funding needs and options. To schedule a one-on-one appointment with Oak Street Funding at the conference, contact Chief Marketing Officer Carissa Newton at or 317-428-3834.
