Cities and Counties: A Great Opportunity for Agents
Many insurance agents may be aware of the opportunities with cities and counties, but they hesitate to pursue them, believing that they would need to master a new, complex body of insurance knowledge. Cities and counties do have unique exposures but with over 39,000 municipalities in the United States1, and more than $250,000 in average annual premium for cities and counties insured by Travelers2, they can be a profitable way to diversify your book of business.
