Spencer Houldin, Big “I” chairman, appeared in Insurance Journal this week in the article, “As Agents’ Needs Change and Startups Emerge, Big ‘I’ Looks to Remain Relevant.”
In the interview, Houldin discusses where the industry is headed and the role of the Big “I” in serving the agents of the future. He also highlights the importance of the agent market access Big “I” Markets provides.
“We do have markets. We have Big ‘I’ Markets, which is a Big ‘I’ initiative, where we have contracted with insurance companies with which a smaller agency may not have the volume to be able to get an appointment on their own,” Houldin explains in the interview. “But they can access many markets through Big ‘I’ Markets. Using the power of 22,000 independent agencies that are members, we’re able to bring market access to those younger and startup agencies.”
Don’t forget, in addition to Big “I” Markets, IIAT gives agents access to a variety of markets through IIAT Advantage and LevelFirst, an IIAT-owned MGA.
