Key Highlights
MGAs play various roles in the insurance market, with some specializing on particular product lines while others offer a broader range of products within the general market. Those with the right business models are well-placed to fill in gaps created by insurers exiting high risk areas in a bid to improve profitability.

Specialist MGAs are often focused on specific insurance lines and niche markets, and have accumulated the underwriting expertise necessary to do business in these areas.

Generalist MGAs' key benefit to insurers is that of enabling access to hard to reach markets, while brokers gain from a potentially wider range of products and higher responsiveness.
