IMS Market Solutions

A market access solution to fit any need for any size agency.
 
Access to markets shouldn’t prevent you from writing business. The IIA of IL understands this and has joined with 15 Big “I” associations in 17 states to develop IMS – a standard market access solution to fit every member.
 
Independent Market Solutions facilitates relationships between agents who are unable to secure company appointments due to any number of reasons, and carriers with an appetite for writing property coverage.
 
After the contract process, new or small agencies with little or no direct appointments can begin writing policies immediately following carrier appointment.
 
Mid-sized to large agencies can place a niche piece of business to satisfy clients' needs without taking on additional minimums or placing less desirable risks with an existing market.
 
Access to IMS is available at no charge to IIA of IL members, and there are no minimum premium volume requirements.

The purpose of IMS

  • Provide member agents access to markets and alternatives that may be otherwise unavailable.
  • Offer more choices for independent agents, which equates to greater competition for their services.
  • Create added marketplace leverage, particularly for smaller agents, through IMS negotiated contract terms.
