Mercury Insurance Group
A solid foundation for success.Our agents have made us one of the fastest growing insurance carriers in the nation. Agents are our front line underwriter, public relations representative, the face to their local community, and a valued partner. It is critical to our success that you provide the best service possible to existing and new clients. In order to do so, you need the proper tools.
Knowledgeable Staff. Marketing and underwriting work hand in hand to assist your agency. The Field Marketing Representative may be your first source of contact, but all underwriting questions can be answered by contacting any of our experienced and helpful staff.
Training. Many companies just provide training on products and guidelines. At Mercury we offer assistance with improving loss ratio, managing risk, maximizing closing leads, and customer service.
Cooperative Advertising. Need to boost sales or generate additional revenue? We can help. Bring us your idea of co-branding and let’s see what we can market together. We also offer agents additional ways to advertise without breaking the bank.
Mercury Listens. Our “Producer Council” is comprised of appointed agents that meet to voice concerns and thoughts about the industry and company. We value the information we receive not only from our “Producer Council” but from all Mercury agents. As a partner with Mercury, when you speak, we listen.
