Franchising Opportunities

Are you thinking of starting your own insurance agency? Whether you are a great producer or a seasoned agency owner, there are many factors to consider in today’s market. You must first decide if you want to work with a “captive” carrier or if you want to go “independent.” Both have their respective advantages and disadvantages. Captives such as State Farm, All state, Farmers, Nationwide, etc. provide you with the tools necessary to get you off the ground. The biggest drawback, however, is that you are bound to that carrier’s products and services and this can limit your potential and become aggravating if and when your carrier decides to leave your market.

On the other hand, independent agencies are able to write with an array of carriers and literally can write a policy for almost anyone. This is because there are carriers out there who focus on the niche products the captives would never consider. From a personal auto policy to skyscrapers to government insurance contracts, independent agents have the ability to participate in all. Drawbacks include the investment required to start and the ability for your agency to get appointed by reputable “name brand” insurance companies which will allow for you to sell their products. This is where Boardwalk can help.
