Why would I recommend doing Business with ANTEX? Being that Final Expense is the vast majority of my business, the Moody Group offers unique options such as 401K’s that other IMO’s don’t have to expand my company. The Corporate Management is a quick phone call away from my questions & make you feel welcomed.

ANTEX is part of American National which makes the financial strength & stability part of what I sell my clients.
