Pack Your Own Parachute
Coming from a background in banking and finance, Fredrick Hicks, manager of Asurea’s Raleigh life insurance office, has one message for his clients: “Be sure to pack your own parachute.” What Fredrick means by this is that you have to be prepared for all that life will bring, especially the curve balls. One of the easiest ways to prepare financially is to have a life insurance policy. Since 2008, Fredrick has been helping families pack their own parachutes, and this is exactly what motivates him every day. At the end of the day, he wants to know he made a difference in families’ lives, protecting them from financial worries through life insurance when the unthinkable happens.
When Fredrick is not helping others through life insurance, he can be found tending to his freshwater fish collection. He has 11 different tanks, the largest being 500 gallons that contains a 3-foot arowana! Arowanas are a large, predatory fresh-water fish that can be found in South America. They are excellent hunters and have even been seen jumping 6-feet out of the water to capture insects or small birds! Fred is a professional aquaculturist, which means that in addition to being an expert in life insurance, he is an expert in aquatic plants and animals. His tank set-up and fish breeding program is so impressive that the College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University brings their students to his home to study his fish.
