Welcome to Insurance Journal‘s new and improved Top 100 Independent Property/Casualty Agencies report.
This year’s Top 100 features a number of agencies that are new to the list thanks to a change that ranks the agencies on total property/casualty revenue in 2012. Previous reports ranked by total P/C premium. Also, Insurance Journal’s Top 100 list comprises solely privately-owned firms whose business is primarily retail, not wholesale.
This year also brings a new addition to the report. The nation’s Top 20 Agency Network/Aggregator Groups can be found on page 26.
Aggregator groups – organizations that join the premium and services of many individual, privately-owned independent agencies – play an important role in the independent agency system today.
Also included is a list of the nation’s Top 20 Bank Holding Companies and Banks in Insurance ranked by 2012 insurance brokerage fee income courtesy of the Michael White Bank Insurance Fee Income Report, which was sponsored by Dowling Hales.
Insurance Journal wishes to thank all of the agencies and brokerages that were willing to share their information for the Top 100 report and cooperated in the process. The result is a glimpse at some of the nation’s most successful privately-held independent insurance agencies and brokerages.
All information in this report has been garnered from voluntary online submissions from agencies and brokerages and best estimates based on other public information sources. There may be agencies eligible for listing but for which no information was received or located.
We encourage all qualifying agencies to submit data for future reports. The more submissions and cooperation Insurance Journal receives, the more accurate and comprehensive this listing can be.
Also, submitted data was not independently verified.
