What Is Advantage Specialist?

No matter the niche, there's an Advantage subscription fit for your insurance agency's business appetite. Learn about Advantage Specialist.
January 11, 2022

Any independent agency browsing’s Advantage subscription options might have noticed the Advantage Specialist subscription available at the bottom of the page. But what is Advantage Specialist?

Agencies who write insurance only in niche territories of business (Ex: daycare insurance, bakery insurance, food truck insurance) might qualify for Advantage Specialist. With Advantage Specialist, niche insurance agencies reserve the right to be recommended on as the insurance resource for specific coverage other agencies might not provide. These agencies typically have broader territories to offset their narrow business appetite.
