Our History

Of agents. By agents. For agents.
Indium (MarketSource Agency Network, LLC) was founded in 2005 out of the PIA of Ohio, who assembled a team of thought-leading independent insurance agents to develop an innovative solution for the purpose of helping independent insurance agents stay independent. This team of agents – our founding fathers – volunteered their time to collaborate, cooperate and strategize for each other’s benefit and to strengthen the independent channel. With financial investment from more than 70 independent agents and the PIAs of OH, IN and KY, MarketSource Agency Network was established to provide independent insurance agents access to the standard markets they needed to grow their insurance agencies without the burden of ever-increasing production requirements of carriers, or giving up control of their business.

Today
In 2016, we changed our company name to Indium (Why Indium) to reflect the vision and energy of our new “indie agent” brand. In staying true to our founding principles, Indium is a leading market access provider whose focus is to facilitate enhanced revenue and profitable growth opportunities for our agency partners and companies. We are still owned and operated by independent agents, and we support over 500 agency partners in seven states who have placed over $50 million in written premium with our company partners.
