The PIA/NU Agent Survey Is Released
More than a year ago, PIA began talks with the National Underwriter about joining together to conduct the most comprehensive and exhaustive survey of America’s independent agency force that has ever been attempted to date.
Results of the National Underwriter/PIA Independent Agent Survey have now been released in the March 2017 issue of National Underwriter. Here is a link to the results as they appear in the magazine. On PC360.com online, selected results will be updated daily for the next two weeks. The findings provide revealing insight into the demographics, books of business and industry challenges of independent Property & Casualty insurance agents, as well as rankings of their most highly rated carriers.
“This data will be useful to PIA, in developing our own strategies to help our members succeed, and to carriers in their dealings with their appointed agencies,” said PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Mike Becker. “The scope, breadth and depth of this study are truly significant,” Becker said. “Importantly, it probes just what agents need from their carriers to ensure mutual growth and profitability.”
