Assure Alliance, a top member of SIAA, has given 170 members to date, the advantage of competing with large agencies, while continuing to grow their agency. As a Strategic Master Agency, Assure Alliance maintains an exclusive SIAA territory covering both the states of Georgia and South Carolina. Assure Alliance represents a select group of competitive regional, as well as national, insurance companies.
“SIAA was founded in 1983 by its Chairman, Jim Masiello. SIAA is neither a cluster nor an aggregator, according to Masiello, who likes to say that when a small independent insurance agency joins a master agency that is part of SIAA, ‘they become instantly big.’”– Article piece by, Stephanie K. Jones, Insurance Journal.
The partnerships we’ve built with our SPC’s (Strategic Partner Carriers) gives us the advantage of combining resources, along with access to the country’s top carriers, to provide and produce more accessible markets for the smaller, yet growing independent agencies. Assure Alliance holds and impressive carrier lineup in both commercial and personal lines! Our alliance has been, as will always be, ready and excited to take on agencies of all sizes and line concentrations. To name a few of our Strategic Partner Carriers we represent, between commercial and personal, you’ll find:
Liberty Mutual, Guard Insurance Group, Hamilton, The Hartford, State Auto, Travelers, Safeco, Nationwide, MetLife, Encompass, AmTrust, Main Street America Group, Tapco, Grange, Foremost, American Strategic, Central, Dairlyland, National General, Titan/Victoria, ect.
Whether you’re currently appointed with a carrier directly, or you’re looking for a direct appointment in the future, Assure Alliance is a perfect fit. As I’m sure most independent agencies know, the majority of carriers directly appoint an agency based on an existing book of business or a minimum Gross Written Premium guarantee. However, given Assure Alliance’s affiliation with SIAA, our size, and our relationships with our SPC’s, we’re able to negotiate a few appointments up front, as well as increased commissions from those Strategic Partner Carriers. “SIAA is going to be the survival of the small independent insurance agent,” said Neville Cuave, owner of the sole SIAA master agency in Louisiana, Southern Insurance Group of Louisiana. “The small retail agents out there that we serve and help have no markets here in Louisiana because the companies require so much large volume.” – Article piece by, Stephanie K.

With Assure Alliance by your side, the SPC(s) relationships we will share with you, additional compensation deals, and unlimited resources – the skies the limit for your independent agency! Joining Assure Alliance would open up the door of opportunity and provide you with options you may never know existed.
Assure Alliance holds the key, to the captive cuffs!
