Giving independent agents the edge they need to stay independent.

Giving independent agents the edge they need to stay independent.

Get an Edge. Stay Indie.™

What is it going to take to win in the future? A new set of behaviors. Behaviors that value strategy, technology, collaboration, transparency, learning, sharing of resources, and a passion for independence. Which is why everything we do is meant to challenge the established model of insurance, giving Indie Agents™ an edge now, and in the future. So when we say, “stay indie”, that’s not a marketing ploy meant to repackage a dying model. 

“Stay indie” is about leading, not following. It’s about partnership, not membership. 

It’s about doing it with you, not to you.


Of agents. By agents. For agents.

We are a company of independent agents, by independent agents, for independent agents. We were founded by independent agents who collaborated, cooperated and strategized together for the benefit of all independent agents. Today, we are still owned and directed by independent agents. With that as our DNA, we exist for the purpose of giving independent agents the edge you need to stay independent, both now and in the future.

How do we do that? We do that by providing access to the most relevant markets, tools, technology, and training resources. And by weaponizing data, we arm our partners with the most relevant strategic insights, analytics and benchmarks, making Indie AgentsTM and the companies with whom we partner, winners.

With the most agent-friendly partnership agreements in the industry and solutions for growth, profitability and perpetuation, you should partner with us.

Why We're Your Best Direct Appointment

We know you need to feed your direct carriers first. That makes sense. You have direct appointments and you don’t want to lose those. And we’re not here to displace your direct appointments. Instead, we’re here to complement them. So, with that, instead of thinking of us after you try your in-house carriers, think of us as one of your in-house carriers.
