Welcome to the November edition of STG’s Independent Agent and Broker Sales Alerts, with the latest updates on independent insurance agencies for sale nationwide. Direct access to sellers can be difficult because sellers open exposure of their desire to sell can be a concern due to the impact this information could have on insurance carriers (markets), employees, clients and the competition. As reported by our strategic partner, Marsh Berry, only 10 percent of all deals in the $1MM range are publicly known.

New activity for this time of year is average with normal deal size trending down. Most large deals that are to be completed in the current year are committed and pushing for close.
