AAI is most simply understood as a Master General Agency (MGA), that from a philosophy & function standpoint operates as a Business Development & Consulting Association in the Independent Insurance Industry. We are much more than an Aggregator or Cluster Group, as a "Business Development & Consulting Company" that operates through membership of which you FULLY own your book & business. We not only give you access to carriers and business essentials, but surround you with the support, guidance and coaching to efficiently and effectively build and run a business in the Independent Insurance world, because success requires much more than access to carriers. We are the pre-eminent Business Advisors in the Independent Insurance industry. Our focus is to share our experience with you to lessening your learning curve and accelerate your growth. AAI Executives created this Association to help Independent Insurance business owners understand how to not only run an agency but to build, run and scale a business. Too many Insurance Agents are great salespeople who happen to get stuck working a job they created for them self rather than TRUELY building and running a business. It is one thing to build a $500k to $1million agency, but to break through the $2 and $3 million milestones, and reach $5million, $10million and beyond is another thing AND it to not take you 10+ years is what very few know how and or are able to do! Are you interested in not only growing bigger, faster but growing & building a book of business extremely efficiently? Having the support and guidance to better understand how to manage hiring, marketing strategies, overhead, higher margins, and access to proprietary technology that gives you the analytics and data eliminating assumptive guess work of what is really happening within your book of business. Agencies partnered with AAI in years 3 to 6 are growing at 38% year after year and Agencies in years 7 and beyond are growing at 17% - far surpassing captive and lone Independent industry standards. Our dedicated, experienced Business Advisors provide you the blueprint and playbook. We mentor and coach you so you can successfully be Independent, but not alone. If you want to continue doing what you have always done it should come as no surprise that you will get the same results. Build a bigger agency, faster and more efficiently that is what we help people do better than anyone else!
