    WOW! For every $100 of premiums received, a pure PROFIT of $3.70 — BEFORE income from investments!! And to reward the company\’s \”Partners\” (i.e. agents) they reduce commissions, raise contingent requirements both for volume and loss ratio, lower contingent percentages, and continue to restrict underwriting to keep half the population from eligibility. What is wrong with this picture?

    NGM/MSA are a great company. I have been everything from a CIGNA COMPAR agent to a true independent. I have represented nationals, regionals, super-regionals, state only and everything in between. MSA is an all time favorite of mine. I have never met any MSA employee who was less than great in their job. I have been at dinner with their BOD and Pres and top VP\’s and found them to be open, forthright folk. I also know after Hurricane Isabel that this is a smart company – giving agents they knew and trusted the tools necessary to settle claims as quickly and effeciently as possible – mine were done by dec (sept storm) while the nationals – travelers, zurich, etc – hung on – some for almost a year – cat teams seem to have a habit of leaving with the files. Within a year MSA\’s computer platforms will meet their vision and those of us lucky enough to have realized their value, integrity and loyalty to the independent agent, will be riding even higher. Integrity counts and they have it. Ind. agent in VA

    Not greed, capitalism with a careful eye towards underwriting and financial management. You\’re clear not a South Florida agent like me-we absolutely love these guys as they have a BOP market that is open in our cat prone coast, pay great commissions (compared to the rest of the companies) and offer us a contingency bonus (unlike many companies who are curtailing or totally dropping bonuses). They operate the way most insurance carriers should: prudently but with an understanding that they have an obligation to take risk.
