Why go independent?
You Have More Choice
Instead of being locked into specific products or companies, you can offer more choice and find the right product for your customers every time.
You Run Your Own Business
The independent path makes you an entrepreneur, instead of an employee, so you can grow as fast as you want and work when you choose.
Quick Start-Up
Writing your first policy can happen faster than you think – many independent agents are surprised to see how simple it is to get started.
