Through the years, personal lines agencies are often the first to experience changes in insurance distribution, especially those involving technology and digital transformation. With further distribution changes expected in the coming years, both insurers and agencies may have to shift their strategies to support one another and maintain a competitive advantage.

This SMA report provides actionable insights for carriers on distributor plans and expectations and highlights new research from a survey of executives at agencies and brokers focused on personal lines. The report looks at agencies’ current state of automating business with carrier partners, agents’ satisfaction with insurers’ digital offerings, and the top investments agencies think insurers should prioritize among sixteen digital sales and seventeen digital servicing capabilities. The report ends with key recommendations on areas insurers should focus on to navigate a changing technology landscape and evolving agent/broker expectations.
