Valuation & Perpetuation
Go Beyond The Number
IIAG partners with a robust range of consulting services designed to help independent agencies.
Having a perpetuation plan for your agency is one of the most important investments you can make in your agency. It will protect you, your customers, your staff as well as your family. It is critically important for all agencies to document their plan, regardless of where they are in their agency lifecycle.
This plan will provide clarity and direction if something unexpected happens to the current owners, and ensure that the agency is well positioned to continue to operate and serve their customers. Agencies that do not have a documented and executable plan often sell at a huge discount when they are faced with an unexpected loss of the agency owner due to the time constraints and urgency that exists in those situations.
Agency Focus works with independent agent owners to ensure that they understand their agency's Fair Market Valuation, the risk factors and opportunities impacting the value, and the ways that this data can be leveraged to plan for the future. In addition, Agency Focus provides guidance and support in order to build strong perpetuation plans that are in line with the agency's goals and timeline. All plans are supported by financial modeling and the appropriate documentation to ensure the agency's future is protected.
IIAG Members are entitled to a FREE 30 minute consultation with Agency Focus to discuss their agency's current position, goals and planning needs.
