The agents have spoken.

In one of the most comprehensive studies of independent agents in the U.S. ever completed, NU, the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) and Flaspöhler, part of NMG Consulting, joined forces to conduct the 2017 Independent Agent Survey — a project whose findings provide revealing insight into the demographics, books of business and industry challenges of independent Property & Casualty insurance agents, as well as their most highly rated carriers.

Flaspöhler has long conducted an annual study of agents on behalf of key P&C carriers, who use the results to help them best meet agent needs. This year's expanded questionnaire — crafted by Flaspöhler, P&C carriers, PIA and NU — was distributed to NU's proprietary lists of independent agents nationwide as well as PIA's national membership (in return for the exclusive right to publish highlights of the study findings), resulting in a reliable and scientifically sound database.
