Leverage the SIAA network in building your independent insurance agency and see an immediate boost to help get your business kickstarted. On average, startup members grow to almost $400K+ in premiums by Year 3, and many can even reach $1M in premiums in that same span.

Startup members typically see premiums growth of 150% within 24 months. Our fee structures are low, and most members are able to break even in less than a year off the initial consulting fee.

Market Access

Get large, fast. The SIAA network provides you with instant access to leading carriers to write some of the most popular insurance offerings on the market. We are the first and biggest alliance in the Northeast and have decades of experience working with startup agencies.

“SAN has been a big partner for us since the beginning…They gave us access to carriers that, if we had opened an agency without being members of SAN, we would have never had access to, and it allowed us to sign clients in the beginning when we needed to grow quickly.

We wouldn’t be where we are today without the partnership with SAN.”
