About Us

Independent Agent (IA) is the authoritative source of information for professionals who sell insurance for independent agencies. IA Magazine primarily serves property-casualty independent insurance agents and brokers and is a benefit of membership of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America. IA gives independent insurance agents access to the critical trends, analysis and tools they need to sell efficiently and effectively. IA offers an unparalleled combination of research, experts and analysis to help lead agencies to profitability and competitive strength.

In addition to thought-leading analysis of industry trends and market conditions, IA covers property-casualty coverage changes and new products, interprets legislative issues, and delivers the strategies managers need to grow their agencies organically. While the primary focus is on commercial and personal property-casualty, life-health and financial services are covered in its content.

Whether it’s a seasoned agency principal, producer, or account representative, IA helps agency employees increase sales and deliver an industry-leading customer experience.
