Storm Insurance Group (Storm), including Agile Underwriting Solutions (Agile), is thrilled to take second place in the annual “Top 10 Insurance Brokerages in Canada” report released by Insurance Business Canada (IBC), April 16, 2019. This marks Storm’s second time being recognized as a Top 10 Canadian Brokerage, having placed fourth on the list in 2017.
The IBC Top 10 Insurance Brokerage awards criteria weighed the metrics from hundreds of brokerages nation-wide and took into account areas of business such as revenue growth, revenue per broker, client growth, and policy growth.
The Storm group of companies prides itself on diversification, specialization and niche programs. Its focus in these areas is what sets Storm apart from other Canadian brokerages, and is widely responsible for its significant growth over such a short time.
Agile Underwriting Solutions, formerly UCAI, is Storm’s managing general agent (MGA) and wholesaler which assists brokers with finding coverage for hard to place insurance products. Founded in 1995 to fill a void in the marketplace, Agile has since worked with thousands of brokers across Canada as a leader in the industry. The company recently expanded its services to include the Western market, hiring an underwriter in Ontario.
Including Agile, four divisions make up the Storm Insurance Group, with a fifth to be acquired in May 2019. ZipSure.ca, Storm’s online tenant insurance platform, is Canada’s first and only fully digital insurance broker. Its group insurance division, MyGroup Auto and Home Insurance, offers exclusive insurance discounts to organizations across the country. Finally, A.P. Reid Insurance Stores, established in 1980, is the Group’s retail personal and commercial lines brokerage.
With this diverse offering of products and services, the Storm Insurance Group has the ability to find coverage for just about anyone, or anything.
