MarshBerry FocalPoint Webinar: Death of the Independent MGA

July 7, 2022
1:00 - 1:45 PM ET

The wholesale broker segment has undergone massive consolidation to the point where very few independent pure play Property & Casualty brokers remain. In addition, it’s likely that the market is at the front end of a consolidation wave that is hitting delegated authority firms with nearly 8% of specialty entities consolidating in 2021. As history demonstrates, massive value is unlocked when insurance distributors and markets are aggregated. Delegated authority is not an exception to this premise.

Join MarshBerry’s Director and Specialty Practice Co-Head, George Bucur, as he looks at how consolidation is impacting firms that wish to remain independent, the implications to ongoing operations and valuation, and what it will take for these remaining entities to stay relevant to their carriers, distribution partners, vendors and employees.
