Do You Like Market Trends? Course You Do

It’s been a volatile 2020-21 and the rest of the 2020s will be a rollercoaster as globalists impose climate agenda policies across all sectors of the economy, and interfere in people’s personal lives in ways not seen since religion governed everyday behaviour in the 18th century. All that spells huge changes in insurance demand; Commercial, transport, healthcare, co-living housing, shared vehicle lease ownership, protected social credit score, vaccine passports tied to travel/event privileges and much more.

So any insurer or broker needs the latest trends and data to plan new products, or tweak existing insurance policies for the new age of government by expert.

Vertafore®, the leader in modern insurance technology, has announced the release of Vertafore MarketTrends™, its latest innovation to put the power of data and analytics into the hands of independent agencies.

Built on Vertafore’s award-wining RiskMatch® platform, MarketTrends surfaces coverage trends, cross-sell opportunities and appropriate markets in an intuitive interface to help agents easily apply the information to their day-to-day interactions with clients. Agencies can also use the tool to explore carrier appetites, evaluate remarketing opportunities and identify the best carrier partners to work with.

The insights are based on the industry’s largest pool of in-force policy data, providing the most recent industry information. Agencies that leverage MarketTrends data can retain clients at a much higher rate and sell significantly more products per client—driving revenue growth and higher client satisfaction.

“Being empowered with insights into real time premiums for specific industries in a geographic area allows us to win more new business and increase our renewals by demonstrating to our prospects and clients we are placing their business with the most competitive markets,” says Sean Ortega, senior executive of agency operations at United Western Insurance Brokers. “It is also giving us information to manage our carrier relationships because we can show our partners why we place certain lines of business and where we’re competitive.”

Data-backed insights to meet client needs

Traditionally, many independent agencies have faced issues that inhibit growth such as inadequate benchmarking of industry price trends and exposure tendencies, lack of visibility into a client’s new or potential risks and limited insight into carrier appetite and commission rates. With Vertafore MarketTrends, agencies can:

  • Access extensive industry and customer insights from the largest, most up-to-date benchmarking database.
  • Spot cross-sell opportunities and improve renewals by showing clients how their coverage compares to insureds with similar risks and needs.
  • Create more compelling proposals for prospects with targeted information that addresses their coverage needs.
  • Identify the best carriers to place different lines of business, based on carrier appetite, financial soundness and commissions.


“MarketTrends enables agencies to access the most comprehensive, up-to-date market data and immediately put it to work to grow their business and service their clients,” said James Thom, chief product and data officer at Vertafore. “As one of our customers often says, the best way to displace a competitor is to show up with better data. This tool gives our customers the resources and information to stay ahead of their competitors.”
