Insurance Agencies for Sale – January 2014 Independent Agency Listings

Welcome to the first edition the STG Insurance Agent and Broker Sales Alerts for the New Year! We are excited to see tremendous opportunities with independent insurance agencies for sale across several parts of the country. Middle market buyers continue to be enthused about buying opportunities because of four critical motivations:

  • To gain critical mass
  • Enter a new market area
  • Back fill organic growth gaps
  • Better utilize operating efficiency / specialty resources

In our view, the most effective tactic in acquisition target development is a multi-level and joint endeavor, using the national approach that STG provides in concert with the “boots on the ground” local market intelligence to which only the client has access. STG provides clients additional tools to access the 90% of the sellers that are not openly and publically communicating their intention to sell.

The listings below are a small sample of some of the new independent agencies discovered through our research or provided to us during the last 30 days. Upon request we will provide our clients access to previous month’s and off cycle listings.
