2019 Best Practices Comprehensive Study


Best Practices research offers real life benchmarking and formulas to help your agency with high-performance operating levels. Monitor and measure what matters!

2019-BestPracticescover.jpgThe annual Best Practices Study (BPS) originated in 1993 as an initiative by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (or Big I) to help its members build and maintain the value of their most important assets, their agencies. By studying the leading agencies and brokers in the country, the association hoped to provide member agents with meaningful performance benchmarks and business strategies that could be adopted or adapted for use in improving agency performance, thus enhancing agency value. The Big I retained the principals of Reagan Consulting to create and perform the first Best Practices Study. Annual updates are conducted to provide important financial and operational benchmarks and the Study is recognized as one of the most thoughtful, effective and valuable resources ever made available to the industry.
