VAST OPPORTUNITY

The insurance sector is highly fragmented; independent agencies like Encore consistently increase their market share each year. This industry provides the opportunity to build a substantial book of business, protecting individuals and families from financial losses stemming from unforeseen events.

A RECESSION PROOF INDUSTRY

Even amidst economic uncertainty, the insurance sector stands as a dependable resource for customers. In times of recession, both businesses and individuals seek insurance as a safeguard against financial risks. This resilience has been evident in various global recessions, including the 2008 global financial crisis, underscoring the enduring importance of insurance in our economy even during uncertain periods.

A REGULATED INDUSTRY: PROTECTING YOUR AGENCY AND YOUR CLIENTS

State regulations ensure that only legitimate providers can enter the insurance market, safeguarding customers from exploitative practices. This assurance is comforting for both agents and consumers, establishing a level of safety within the industry. Through vigilant market monitoring, governments not only protect customers but also offer reassurance to agents and agencies, making insurance an appealing and secure opportunity.

RESIDUAL INCOME LAYS THE FOUNDATION FOR ONGOING GROWTH

Insurance agents enjoy a significant advantage in generating continuous income. As clients need to renew their policies annually to stay covered, agents earn renewal commissions. This becomes particularly advantageous during periods of economic uncertainty, enabling insurance agents to sustain their revenue stream even in challenging financial times.

THE FUTURE LIES IN THE INDEPENDENT MODEL

A noticeable power shift in the insurance market, from captive companies to independent agents, is evident, with 52% of all premiums in 2022 flowing through the independent channel. This significant achievement underscores the strength and resilience of independent brokers, like ENCORE, offering a blueprint for success and enabling their agents to flourish.
