At the end of the day, the relationships that independent agents engender with carriers is one of the most critical elements of their business. But which insurers do agents consider the best overall, and how do they rate them across a spectrum of 11 key factors?
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.
The findings on top carriers, as voted by our survey respondents, are presented below. Carriers interested in learning more about subscribing to the report can contact Rick Flaspöhler, Partner, at email@example.com.
Throughout this week and next, we'll continue to share the results of the study, which can be found in full in our March print edition. Check back tomorrow for a look at which carriers independent agents voted their first choice in a variety of P&C lines.
