Independent Agencies for Sale – February 2018

Welcome to the second edition of the STG Insurance Agent Sales Alerts for 2018. Our middle market Registered Buyers continue to be enthused about the positive impact to their organizations that buying opportunities present, principally because of four critical motivations:

  • Gain critical mass, enhancing commissions and bonuses
  • Enter new geographic market areas
