SIAA Partners with Zurich Small Business to offer Members Access to Zurich Products and Services

April 16, 2002

Zurich North America Small Business and Strategic Independent Agents Alliance (SIAA) have formed a relationship that will enable SIAA’s 876 member agencies to access the products and services of one of the fastest growing insurance organizations in the United States.

SIAA is an agency distribution network dedicated to the creation, retention and growth of the independent insurance agency system, assisting small agencies, including new start-ups, direct writers seeking to become independent, individual agency producers going out on their own and larger agencies looking to grow to the next level.

SIAA works through large regional or “Master” agencies, which in turn support their own networks of local insurance agencies. There are 54 Master agents throughout the U.S. and they will be given Zurich Small Business appointments. The 876 Independent Strategic Member agencies submit business up through their Master agencies. All together, SIAA has access to more than 1.65 million insureds and generates more than $2 billion in premium volume.

Zurich Small Business, a business unit of Zurich North America, has 52 field offices located in 49 states from which it manages relationships with some 12,000 independent agencies. It provides property and casualty insurance protection to business owners with fewer than 25 employees and less than $15 million in revenue.
