Our History

The Teekell family has provided life insurance and related financial services to our region since Walker W. Teekell founded a life insurance agency in Shreveport in 1933. Our heritage and history demonstrate our long-term commitment to our clients and our community. Now in its fourth generation, The Teekell Company, Inc. has evolved into a dynamic organization that remains committed to serving our clients first and foremost.

In 1979, we joined M Financial Group as an independent Member Firm to focus on business and estate planning and non-qualified executive benefits. As a member of M Financial, we are free to offer services and select products in the best interests of our clients, and have access to the resources of a large organization of leading financial services firms.

Our Mission

Our mission is to create and maintain long-term relationships with a select group of clients. We are proud to provide state-of-the-art solutions for clients’ needs in estate planning, business continuity planning, executive benefits, and asset management. We design, implement, and manage appropriate insurance and asset management portfolios to enable clients to meet their financial and risk management goals.
