Where it all started

In 2021, our founders met more than two dozen cannabis entrepreneurs they couldn’t help with business, wealth or tax planning.

Membership Model

We chose a membership capitalization model, long established in banking and insurance, to best align our interests with our policyholders and eliminate the potential for distraction.

Membership is available as follows:

Institutional Membership

Membership Stock Investment Requirement (MSIR)

0.05% of the Membership Stock Investment Base 

$10,000 minimum

$5,000,000 maximum

Updated annually (March/April)

Activity Based Investment Requirements (ABIR)

As part of use of our products, Member institutions purchase preferred stock in proportion to their utilization of our institutional products. This provides risk-based capital required as a regulated insurer for the duration of the agreement while providing a mechanism for generating returns above the guaranteed fixed rates inherent to our products.

Individual/CRB Membership

Any natural person or CRB who is eligible may join our membership at no cost

Membership eligibility

Membership is available to cannabis related businesses, their stakeholders, or institutions that serve the industry such as:

  • Banks
  • Credit Unions
  • Trust

Membership benefits

A membership with Evergreen provides you access to financial products issued by an A-Rated carrier. We provide a network of leaders and advisors who understand the challenges at the intersection of the cannabis, banking, and insurance industries. Our robust team of in-house experts will work with your team to evaluate how our collaborative solutions may help achieve financial objectives.

For institutions, such as banks or credit unions, membership grants you exclusive access to distribute our CRB facing products in addition to use of our institutional product portfolio. 

For CRBs, owners, or employees, our life and annuity products are made available through our member institutions and offer you the same generalized capabilities as their general market counterparts and bolt-in features designed to solve problems unique to cannabis.
