6. Do we get to keep our underwriters and marketing persons?

PacWest Alliance may have one underwriter for all agencies, however in different territories an agency may have another underwriter for that territory. It is ultimately up to the appointed insurance carrier to make this determination.

7. Can I keep my own company appointments and / or existing bonus agreements with those companies?

Yes, unless those companies have a binding agreement under PacWest Alliance. Examples of this are agencies representing the Mercury Insurance Group, which currently does not appoint clusters or having a carrier’s specialized contract such as Allied Insurance Group’s AIDCO contract.

8. Will my agency be appointed to all of the cluster’s insurance carriers?

Not necessarily. As a general rule, the production requirement is relaxed as compared with obtaining a normal individual appointment. With some carriers, where production is not large enough to qualify for the sub-code appointment, a carrier will allow a member to write business under the PacWest master code. We work to get the best fit for your agency.

9. What types of agencies are eligible for membership in PacWest?

PacWest is looking for a select number of quality agencies who are generally at a minimum of $5 million in premium volume. We are looking for agencies whose book of business is historically profitable and whose appointments are complimentary with those of PacWest. The type of agency PacWest desires is a forward thinking agency who knows that even medium to large size agencies are not immune to being susceptible to the challenges of survival that may not exist today.
