The Marketplace is Optimistic

In June of this year, MarshBerry launched its 28th Annual Market & Financial Outlook Survey in conjunction with Insurance Journal.  

The survey compiled anonymous general independent agency information financial, market, carrier and technology data, and MarshBerry's proprietary financial management system Perspectives for High Performance (“PHP”) data.  Initial data shows that 2012 and 2013 brought a much needed lift to the insurance distribution space creating optimism within the industry.

The complete survey enables independent insurance agencies to highlight key agent and broker performance trends from 2007–2014 with results segmented by revenue size and region. 

The full report is available for purchase for $199 by clicking the "Buy Now" button.  You'll be redirected to the MarshBerry PayPal where you can follow the prompts and complete your transaction.
