Spotlight on Sheikh Sleem of KTX Financial

Getting life insurance; it's up there with going to the dentist—you know you need to do it, but few people ever look forward to it. Like a great dentist, a great life insurance broker can turn that vibe on its head. Meet Sheikh Sleem, one of those top life insurance brokers.

Now, it's easy for anyone to say they're good at what they do, but in the case of Sheikh Sleem others say it for him.

"We would like to thank you for helping us navigate through the process. I must be perfectly honest with you in saying, that we do not relish shopping for life insurance. You changed that for us. We placed our trust in you, and you did not fail us. You listened to our concerns, made suggestions along the way, and the end results were positive. We now have obtained life insurance coverage and the peace of mind that goes along with it.

You were professional, pleasant to deal with and your many years as an Insurance Advisor was invaluable to us. You mentioned that your number one goal is to have a happy customer. That statement is sometimes overused these days, but as we found out, in your case it was true.

We will be contacting you in the years too come, as our insurance needs change. In the meantime, we will not hesitate recommending you to our family and friends, in a true measure of the trust you have earned with us."
(I. and L. from Ottawa, Ontario)

Like the couple suggests, life insurance isn't exactly on anyone's top 10 list of fun things to do, but Sheikh takes the sting out of it all with an approach that too many people have forgotten about: excelling at customer service.

Sheikh Sleem, Principal Life & Health Insurance Broker at KTX Financial

It's safe to say that Sheikh is unlike any other life insurance broker you'll meet. With a B.A in Economics, an accounting background, and 35 years of experience in the life insurance business, Sheikh's financial acumen is second to none. Qualifications aside however, and it's the story of how Sheikh came to become one of the best life insurance brokers that sets him apart.

"I lost a friend who didn't have any life insurance," Sheikh explains when asked why he became a life insurance broker. "His family was devastated financially."

Having seen first hand what can happen to good people when there's no life insurance, Sheikh has taken this hard life lesson to heart and offers his clients his expertise when advising them on how much life insurance they should have, the type of life insurance policy that suits their financial needs and lifestyle, and which company fulfills both considerations best.

"I would like to express my gratitude for your assistance during my life insurance endeavours. Before speaking with you for the first time, I had spent a considerable amount of time contacting different agents and agencies for quotes and life insurance options. Even after spending countless hours researching and chasing around for information, I still had no clue how the process worked or how I was going to get the task accomplished. You, Mr. Sleem, were the only person that I spoke to who was not pressuring me into something I did not need or want. After speaking with you, it was obvious that you were incredibly knowledgeable and experienced in the subject. It was this knowledge and experience that directly translated into me receiving the exact life insurance coverage that I needed. Not only did you create a positive outcome, you created a very pleasurable journey.

Having said that, I will be recommending your services to my friends and family should they require anything life or health insurance related. I am very confident in referring you to loved ones because I know that they will be dealt with the utmost professionalism, courtesy, passion and respect.
" (Tony from Alberta)

As Tony points out, "You, Mr. Sleem, were the only person that I spoke to who was not pressuring me into something I did not need or want." As an affiliated brokerage of Kanetix Ltd., KTX Financial was set up with the client in mind. What this means is that Sheikh is salaried; there is no heavy sales tactic or pressure to buy, ideal for a life insurance broker whose focus is to deliver the best customer experience. There's no rush; it's not a race to get 'em in and get 'em out. Sheikh can take the time that often others can not, to learn about his client's needs, provide sage financial advice and be there as life happens; getting married, having children, changing jobs, buying a home, and retiring.

More than just term life insurance's life insurance comparison service features online quotes for Term Life Insurance. However, Sheikh is quick to point out that term life insurance doesn't always make sense for everyone; that there are other life insurance options available all of which he can help you get, including Whole Life Insurance, Critical Illness Insurance, and Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance. It's simply a matter of a phone call (either to's Customer Care at 1-888-854-2503 or to KTX Financial direct at 1-888-854-2503).

The following is the skinny on each:

Term Life Insurance

Term Life Insurance is the least expensive of them all. It provides life insurance protection for a specified length of time—its term. The most popular is Term 10, but you can also get coverage for 20 years (Term 20), 30 years (Term 30) or until you turn 100 (Term to 100). The premium on term insurance stays the same until the term period of the policy expires. Through you can get quotes for each online easily.

Whole Life Insurance

Whole Life Insurance is a type of permanent life insurance policy. It combines a lifetime of life insurance protection as well as a savings component that often comes with tax advantages. Whole Life Insurance policies guarantee the level of premiums you pay, the death benefit and the savings within the policy. To discuss Whole Life Insurance with Sheikh, call's Customer Care at 1-888-854-2503 or KTX Financial at 1-888-854-2503.

Critical Illness Insurance

Critical Illness Insurance is a unique product; it provides you with a lump sum payment to help with the cost of recovery should you become critically ill during the term of the policy. Because it's a policy that covers a specified term, the rate that you will pay is the same for the entire duration of your coverage. Critical illness insurance policies vary in the conditions covered but in general will cover the most common critical illnesses facing Canadians today including the big three: cancer, heart attack and stroke. Through you can get quotes for critical illness insurance online easily.

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance is often favoured by people who are having trouble finding affordable life insurance because of their age or health. There is typically no medical involved. To discuss Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance with Sheikh, call's Customer Care at 1-888-854-2503 or KTX Financial at 1-888-854-2503.

Thanks once again for all your help in getting this taken care of in a quick and professional manner. Your professional guidance has been greatly appreciated and your commitment to following up has been second to none. I will recommend your services to all my friends. (Kevin C.)

Actions speak louder than words

Talk is cheap, and saying that customer service is paramount is too easy nowadays. But, as Sheikh's own clients will tell you, his actions speak louder than words—proving his commitment to future and existing clients.

We want to thank you very much for the prompt and professional service we received from the time we filled out the web quote, all the way through the phases of the interview, medical and reception of the final policy. All our questions were answered, and it was a seamless process. Especially since I was out of town on business at the time of the medical, the willingness to arrange a medical examination in a different city was definitely above and beyond, and helpful. Thanks very much. (Stephen V.)

Thank you very much for making this such an easy and hassle free experience. As you know, we live on an island and getting to the mainland can be quite a chore. It was wonderful to be able to do this from the comfort of our home. We appreciate the time you took to explain everything and for arranging to have the nurse come out to the island. Thank goodness we found you and KTX on line... it was a pleasure doing business with you. That's something that we haven't experienced in a long time. (Peg & Frank)
