Top 100 and More

By | August 4, 2014

This year marks the 10th annual publication of Insurance Journal‘s Top 100 Independent P/C Agencies report.

In our effort to identify the nation’s leading privately-held independent property/casualty insurance agencies a few things have changed, while others have remained the same. We have had to alter some of the eligibility criteria so that we adhere to the goal of identifying true independent agencies.

While there have been many agencies to make the Top 100 year-over-year – Lockton Cos., HUB International, USI Inc., Alliant Insurance Services Inc. to name just a few – there also are newcomers each year.

This year welcomes newcomers: BroadStreet Partners Inc.; Wortham Insurance & Risk Management; Hays Cos.; Answer Financial Inc.; NFP Property & Casualty Services Inc.; Westwood Insurance Agency; Rich & Cartmill Inc.; Tolman & Wiker Insurance Services LLC; R&R Insurance Services; Associated Insurance Management Inc.; Lipscomb & Pitts Insurance; and Insurance One Agency.

What about the Future Top 100? While the following agencies didn’t make the cut in 2014, their total P/C revenue came very close. Top 100 of Tomorrow? We shall see.

The evolution of Insurance Journal‘s Top 100 report would not have been possible without the willing participation of all of the agencies and brokerages that have shared their information with us. All information in this report is gathered from voluntary online submissions and best estimates based on other public information sources.

We thank the many agencies that have contributed over the years and invite others that have never submitted information for the report to consider it next year. Be proud of what you have accomplished. For questions, comments or criticisms, write to us at Insurance Journal. And congratulations to this year’s Top 100 P/C agencies!
