The purchase of insurance and risk management advice & counsel should still be considered a relationship business where the insurance agent continues to be considered a trusted advisor and not the vendor of a commoditized product. The larger National and regional brokerages mass market various insurance products; this, together with consolidation in the industry leads to limited choices. We continue to believe, and support, the Independent Agency system as evidenced by our commitment to providing specialized products, superior claims management expertise, advanced technology together with underwriting expertise on behalf of several insurance carriers to our preferred agency distribution platform.
Initial product offerings include workman’s compensation, loss forecasting, claims management, underwriting and marketing services on behalf of Carriers either not previously represented in certain New England States or who’s market share has been understated. Access to these products and services will be limited and represent the “MAIN STREET ADVANTAGE”
