MGA Growth


The MGA market is booming. According to Aon, the MGA share of the U.S. property & casualty insurance market has doubled over the past 10 years. MGAs offer carriers a valuable pathway to niche markets and specialized expertise, while agents benefit from streamlined processes and access to unique coverage options. However, in a crowded landscape, standing out as an MGA to grow your book of business requires strategic focus. 

This blog explores key strategies MGAs can leverage to grow their book of business, enhance efficiency, and ultimately, write more policies. 


Niche Insurance Expertise is Key 

MGAs thrive by understanding the intricate details of specific industries or customer segments. Deepen your understanding of your niche by:

Conducting regular industry research

Don’t just skim headlines. Subscribe to industry publications, attend webinars, and participate in online forums. Stay updated on emerging risks like cyber threats for the healthcare industry or changes in safety regulations for construction companies. Understanding these trends allows you to tailor your insurance products and services to address the specific needs of your target market.

Building strong relationships with industry associations

Become an active member of relevant industry associations. Attend conferences and events, network with key players, and participate in committees. Gain valuable insights into industry trends, challenges, and opportunities. Leverage these insights to develop innovative insurance solutions and marketing materials that resonate deeply with your target audience.

Developing industry-specific marketing materials

Don’t just use generic marketing brochures. Create content that speaks directly to the pain points and needs of your niche market. Develop case studies showcasing successful risk management strategies within your niche. Craft blog posts and articles addressing common industry challenges and highlighting how your MGA offerings provide solutions.


Embrace Insurance Technology to Streamline Operations 

Modern MGAs leverage technology to gain a competitive edge. Here’s how: 

Invest in a robust MGA Management System

A comprehensive MGA management system like Trailblazer-Policy Admin™ streamlines core functions like underwriting, policy issuance, billing, and claims handling. Imagine a system that automates repetitive tasks, eliminates manual data entry, and ensures consistent underwriting decisions. This frees up valuable time and resources for you to focus on strategic initiatives like developing new business opportunities and nurturing client relationships.

Utilize Online Agent and Client Portals

Empower agents and policyholders with self-service options through online portals. Modern online portals provide a user-friendly platform foragents to submit applications, manage renewals, and access policy documents. Policyholders can access their coverage details, report claims, and make payments conveniently. This improves accessibility for all parties and expedites processes, leading to higher agent and client satisfaction.

Embrace Data Analytics

Data is king. Leverage data analytics tools to identify growth opportunities, track performance metrics, and refine your marketing strategies. Analyze data to understand what types of policies are most profitable within your niche. Identify customer segments with high renewal rates. Use these insights to tailor your offerings and marketing campaigns for maximum impact.



Exceptional Service is Your Differentiator

In a commoditized market, exceptional service sets you apart and can help an MGA grow their book of business. Here’s how to excel: 

Reduce friction for your agents and policyholders

Your agents and policyholders are all internet consumers shopping on Amazon and banking online.  It is essential to provide them with a similar modern, hassle-free experience when doing business with your MGA.

Offer ongoing education and support

Equip agents with the knowledge and tools they need to effectively sell your products. Provide ongoing training on your insurance offerings, industry trends, and best practices. Develop marketing materials and sales tools that empower agents to confidently present your solutions to potential clients. Regular webinars and online resources ensure agents stay up-to-date and informed.

Develop a streamlined claims process

A fast, fair, and hassle-free claims experience fosters client loyalty. Utilize technology to automate claims processing tasks and expedite payments. Assign dedicated claims adjusters to work directly with policyholders, ensuring clear communication and timely resolution of claims. Positive claims experiences create lasting client relationships and serve as powerful testimonials for your MGA.
