Top 100 Property Casualty Independent Agencies

April 21, 2008

About This Report: The soft market had its effect on this year’s Top 100. But despite challenging soft market conditions, 15 of the privately-owned agencies and brokerages on Insurance Journal‘s Top 100 Property Casualty Independent Agencies list managed to increase their P/C premium volume in 2007 over 2006 by more than 20 percent.

Notable mentions include The Leavitt Group, which reported a 52.5 percent increase in P/C premium in 2007 over 2006.

Also, Houchens Insurance Group reported a 50 percent increase in P/C premium while the The Buckner Co. reported a 56.52 percent jump.

This year’s list also includes a number of newcomers including: Allied North America; Wausau Signature Agency LLC; Frenkel & Co. Inc.; Combined Agents of America LLC; Capacity Group; Moreton & Co.; Bratrud Middleton Insurance Brokers Inc.; Sihle Insurance Group; Turner Surety & Insurance Brokerage Inc.; James G. Parker Insurance Assoc.; John O. Bronson Co. Inc.; The Buckner Co.; MJ Insurance Inc.; Lassiter-Ware Insurance; and Senn Dunn.

Insurance Journal wishes to thank all those agencies and brokerages that were willing to share their information for the Top 100 report. The result is a glimpse at some of the nation’s top privately-held independent insurance agencies and brokerages whose business volume is primarily retail, not wholesale. The more cooperation IJ receives, the more accurate and comprehensive this listing can be.

All information in this report has been garnered from voluntary online submissions from agencies, 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. Also, submitted data was not independently verified.
