What is
Our Company
  V                 ision of Shared Success ~
                         It is about:
At LTC Financial Partners, we have a vision of shared success that is
unique in the long term care industry. All of our partners have a genuine
professional and financial interest in helping our clients obtain the long
term care products that best meet their needs, as well as helping both
individual members and the organization as a whole succeed.

Foundation for our Vision ~
The foundation for our vision is built on the concept of partnership –
a partnership that acts as a catalyst; building trust and synergy, growing in
strength as a result of the commitment and skill of the elite group of long
term care insurance producers who make up LTC Financial Partners.

Pillars of Strength that Help us Realize our Vision ~
The winning combination created by our commitment to partnership
facilitates a company culture that supports our three “Pillars of Strength” –
Enhanced Business Opportunity, Shared Profit and Appreciation for all,
and a Shared Commitment and Accountability among the partners.
These pillars of strength act in mutually beneficial ways, continually
boosting productivity and confidence among the partners. Productivity
and confidence equate to increased sales. Increased sales equate to an
increase in the value of the Partnership and each individual partner’s
equity stake. The more our equity grows, the greater the reward in
future years for our hard work today.

At LTC Financial Partners, our vision involves:
   u   Providing the best possible coverage for
       our clients;
   u   Innovating change in the long term
       care insurance industry; and
   u   Embracing our individual and
       collective accountability for growing
       the equity of the partnership.

Benefit from
Shared Profit &
S                         hared Profit & Appreciation ~
                          It is about:
The key to this Partnership is setting individual goals and then
utilizing the full potential of the Partnership to help meet those
goals. The rewards are many, but significant among them is
shared profit and appreciation.

Renewals & Dividends ~

    u   For the experienced LTC producer, renewals are vested immediately.

    u   Paid out over $1,000,000 in dividends in March 2007, March 2008
        and in March 2009.*

    u   If annual income from equity reaches $2.00 per share, it would
        exceed producer renewal income.

    u   Your total potential dividend income from equity could match or
        exceed your renewal income over the long run.

    u   Shared profit and appreciation complement the renewal stream you
        have always known. However, the model used by this partnership
        is designed to potentially double or triple your financial reward.

Does the idea of supplementing your
renewal stream (which inevitably will go
down) with a revenue stream that we
expect to go up through the rest of your
working years and beyond sound intriguing
to you?

Read on!

* Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
  S                   hared Profit & Appreciation ~
                      It is about:

Passive Income Potential ~

This is a fundamental consideration for all Partners. We represent the finest
Long Term Care Specialists in America. Specialists who have worked hard
and deserve to benefit from that hard work by being a part of something
that has the potential to continue well into retirement.

Thinking Beyond Renewals ~

Income based on renewals has been the key income area for most of us.
But our financial success will experience an inevitable decline if renew-
als are the only funding stream we consider. Equity provides an important
financial growth opportunity that can complement renewal revenues. As
a matter of fact, we expect that for many producers their equity income
could eventually surpass their renewals.

Increase in Sales ~

By setting high sales goals and meeting them, the producer has the
opportunity to increase shares in the overall equity stake. Most insurance
companies reward hard work and successful goal achievement with a pat
on the back. LTC Financial Partners rewards it with an increased stake in
the company!

Earning Share Grants ~

Today, every partner who places over $60,000 in a year receives 20 share
grants per $1,000 placed premium until all currently authorized shares have
been issued. The more production, the greater number of shares, the greater
the equity stake in the company.
However, this attractive offering won’t last forever. As we build our busi-
ness and cash dividends materialize and grow, future new producers may
receive fewer shares.

You need to
act now to
your equity

Security ~

While no one can predict the future, there are some projections that show
dramatic increases in per share value in as little as five years, putting you
well on the road to financial independence.*

Does the concept of Shared Profit & Appreciation – basically working
hard now, increasing your wealth, securing your financial future, and
allowing you to live your dreams – sound appealing to you?

If so, read on. We’ve got some numbers for you to consider.

* The financial projections in this booklet include possible future results and accordingly are what the
SEC has defined as forward-looking statements. Projections and estimates are based upon assump-
tions concerning facts and events over which we will have no control. If any of these assumptions are
incorrect or incomplete, our actual operating results may differ significantly from the projections and
  S                   hared Equity ~ Doing the Math:

From the Individual Producer Perspective ~

The equity in your home works for you. Your equity in the Partnership can
work for you exponentially. Here’s a hypothetical illustration of how it
might work...
  u $1,000 Placed Premium = 20 share grants.
  u If you place $250,000 for 4 years = $1,000,000 book of business.
  u You end up with 20 thousand share grants.

From the Full Partnership Perspective ~ Our target

Our target in five years is to have 400 Partners on average placing
$150,000 per year, which would mean that the full Partnership would
place a total of $60,000,000 per year in annualized premium. You could
be one of those partners!

Potential For Profit For the Partnership ~

And that’s not all. Our profit will continue to grow as the Partnership
continues to place business.

   u   After all expenses (renewals to producing partners, 1st year
       commissions, etc.) profit could be greater than $20,000,000.
   u   Potential 1st year annualized production of
       $60,000,000 @ 10% projected profit contribution = $ 6,000,000
   u   Potential Renewals on
       $200,000,000 book of business @
       7% projected profit contribution                     = $14,000,000
                                Total Potential Profit >       $20,000,000

If distributed, a potential profit of $20,000,000 divided by the number of
shares issued (13,330,000) = approximately $1.50 per share.
Profit to You ~

At year five, your original 20,000 share grants could now show an estimated
profit per share of $1.50 for a total annual dividend of $30,000 payout plus
your renewals at approximately $50,000 (based on a 6% renewal rate and a
conservative lapse rate). That would mean a total deferred income of $80,000!
Even better, in ten years if we achieved our potential to get to a $2.00 dividend
would return $40,000 in annual dividends. At this point, your renewals will
probably be $45,000 or less. So, even though your renewals will naturally go
down, your total deferred compensation could go up. Why? Deferred compen-
sation goes up as a direct result of the shared equity in the Partnership that you
are helping to build.

Shared Equity ~

One of the best ways to achieve personal wealth is through the creation of
equitable assets. At LTC Financial Partners, we have begun the approach where
dividends are being distributed. We prefer to have an approach where even as
your renewals from existing business go down, your annual dividend from the
equity in the LLC has the opportunity to go up.

We prefer to have our money work for us.

S                  hared Commitment &
                   Accountability ~ It is about:
Teamwork ~
If you join this Partnership, you join a team. We use a team focus to help
us achieve our goals. Specific strategies include:

   u   Coaches and Mentors ~ One of our fundamental beliefs is that we
       are all coaches and mentors with significant strengths to share, to
       help us achieve our ultimate goals of meeting the needs of our
       clients and creating opportunity to build increased individual and
       collective wealth.

   u   Setting Realistic Targets – and then raising the bar ~ Members of
       this Partnership share a commitment to setting realistic targets,
       meeting those targets and then raising the bar to higher achievable
       levels. We believe every one of our full time producers should see
       a minimum of 15 qualified consumer appointments per week.

   u   Capitalizing on the evolving long term care insurance market ~
       At LTC Financial Partners, we believe in a balance and commitment
       of effort between activities that drive our business and developing
       new markets. We invest at least ten hours a week in business-to-
       business opportunities that we know will pay off in the future.
       There is a clear understanding that if we are behaving in a way that
       shows our commitment to achieving our goals, we will be successful.
       Partners recognize that it is in everyone’s
       interest to help other partners with
       goal achievement. We are a team.

At LTC Financial Partners, we operate in a
culture that actively promotes the concept
of shared success. After all, if we share
success, we share financial reward.
