The year ahead will see the continuation of the consolidation trend we’re seeing across the insurance industry — not just of huge health insurance carriers merging into a few mega providers, but of agencies combining to form something similar to a professional service firm, with a range of specialties under one roof.
These new combined agencies will have to be able to service not only employee benefits and group insurance, or retirement and financial plans with life insurance and annuities, or property and casualty, or business insurance — they’re going to have to do it all. Instead of needing five separate agencies to cover all an individual’s insurance needs, customers will be able to work with just one agency that has five specialist brokers, each expert in his or her area of insurance.
We at Doyle are proud to be working toward this new model by partnering with experts in the industry that we have closely vetted and can refer for your total insurance needs.
This is also a great time of year to think about umbrella coverage for ATV’s. boats and other sport vehicles. If you want to make sure all of your insurance needs are covered. Give us a call, we’ll be happy to review your current coverage and suggest cost effective and sound advice: 978-777-6344
