InsureZone Product Gets Co-Marketing Endorsements from IIAA Organizations in 5 States August 23, 20

August 23, 2001

InsureZone, the “clicks and mortar” insurance agency that offers access to insurance products through multiple channels, announced that AgentSecure, its web-based market-access program for small and rural commercial agents — has picked up new exclusive co-marketing endorsements from Independent Insurance Agents of America (IIAA) organizations in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, South Carolina, Virginia and New York.

This brings to nine the number of state organizations that have formally aligned themselves with AgentSecure since its acquisition by InsureZone in June. The IIAA organizations in Georgia, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Texas had already gone on record as endorsing InsureZone’s AgentSecure product for member-agents who want to expand their access to property and casualty insurance markets.

Collectively, the nine state IIAA organizations represent more than 7,500 small and rural insurance agencies across an area stretching from Manhattan to the Mexican border.

A managing general agency created specifically for IIAA members has also signaled its willingness to exert influence on behalf of AgentSecure. The “Big I” Eagle Agency — which targets agents in the states of Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Washington — recently signed a letter of intent to enter into a co-marketing agreement with AgentSecure.

AgentSecure gives agents a place they can go to efficiently access policies from big-brand carriers with a generous commission structure and no premium volume requirements. AgentSecure’s current platform of carriers includes CNA, The Hartford and Zurich North America Small Business.

AgentSecure is a subsidiary of InsureZone Inc. Principal funding for InsureZone is provided by Buena Venture Associates, led by Texas financier Sid Bass.
