IMS Markets

Let the power of 16 state associations help you get access to even more programs.

Independent Market Solutions (IMS) was established in 2007 with the goal of creating greater market access for member agents. In 2019, Independent Insurance Agents of Texas made the investment to be a part of IMS and, since that time, we have grown market availability in Texas to include 5 participating carriers that offer personal, commercial, and various specialty lines. Our current carrier partners include Attune Small Commercial, CNA Surety, Coterie Small Commercial, JIBNA Personal Jewelry Insurance, Prudent Pet, and Progressive Auto.

The purpose of IMS is to provide member agents access to quality insurance markets and alternatives that may be otherwise unavailable. IMS creates marketplace leverage through its negotiated contracts, which can be particularly helpful for smaller or rural agents.

IIAT membership allows your agency to sign-up for the program and gain carrier appointments as an IMS sub-producer at no additional cost. Features include:

  • Little or no premium volume requirements for most programs
  • Competitive commissions
  • 100% Ownership of expirations
  • Ability to “graduate” to a direct appointment available where available
  • Online application process for market access (subject to carrier approval)

Ultimately, our mission is to add to the success and prosperity of independent agencies by providing viable market access through IMS. IIAT is a proud owner of IMS, along with our association colleagues in 15 other states.
