ABSTRACT

It’s my privilege to get an opportunity to do my summer training from a well renowned


Company i.e. Aegon Religare Life Insurance Co.Ltd. In earlier a number of queries
keeping in my mind I said “yes” to myself as well as to this company that I will work
with full of my zeal and zest. I started my odyssey of “Summer Internship” on project
“SALES PLAN FOR SALE THE PRODUCT” on 15th of June under the Project head
Mr. Rajesh Pandey“B&DM”and my faculty guide Mr.Nitin Dhir

The feeling of wandering over the road in a deadly scorching sun during the summer
training was making me morbid. On 15th when I met Mr. Rajesh Pandey (B&DM), he
made me understand about my project.

I started working on my “Summer Internship” with fill of enthusiasm being fully fledged.
I was given some sales consultant and then I had to collect the data bases of their
customers to get the view about Aegon Religare products and satisfaction level about
Aegon Religare from them. Then I had to give a conclusion, followed by a suggestion on
it.
It was really a nice experience working with Aegon Religare. I felt a learning experience
while doing market research and satisfaction level about Aegon Religare”. All my
formidable fear vanished away and I am awaiting for my corporate life.

INTRODUCTION TO INSURANCE

The business of insurance began with marine business .traders who would gather in the
Lloyd’s coffee house in London, agreed to shared the losses to there goods while being
carried by ships .the losses would occurred because of pirates who used to rob on the high
seas of because of bad weather running the goods or sinking the hip. The first insurance
policy was issued in 1583 in England. In India insurance began in 1870 with life
insurance being transacted by an English company, the European and Albert. The first
Indian insurance company was the Bombay mutual assurance society LTD. Formed in
1870.the oriental life Assurance go in 1874 came next time and then the Bharat in 1896
and then to follow was empire of Indian in 1987.

Afterwards ,the Hindustan was formed in Calcutta ,the united Indian in madras
,the Bombay life in Bombay ,the national in Calcutta ,the new India in Bombay ,the
Jupiter in Bombay and the lakshimi in new Delhi .these were all Indian company which
began as a results of a the swadeshi movement in the 1900s .by the year 1956 ,when the
life insurance business was nationalized and the life insurance corporation of India (LIC)
was formed in 1st sept.1956,there were 170 companies and 75 provident fund societies
transacting life insurance business in India .after changes to he relevant laws in 1999,
the LIC did not have exclusive privilege of doing life insurance business India.

Insurance is required assets to prevent damages through unpredictable and


accidental events .such event are known as perils. they can be any things ranging from
fire , floods ,break down ,lighting, to earthquake .if such perils damage the assets is set to
be exposed to that risk. Risks are significant losses or damages .the risk to a owner of an
assets, because perils may be a few lacks of a few corers of the rupees, depending on cost
of the assets and it contents. the risk only indicants that loss or damage is possible
insurance is done again the possibility that may happen .there has to be an uncertainty
about the risk .only if is there risk regarding the occurrence of an event,it can’t be insured
.in the case of human being, death is certain ,but the time of death is not certain .in the
case of a person who is terminally till ,the time of death is certain, though not exactly
known .he can not be insured. Insurance does not provide protection for the assets .the
perils can not be avoided through insurance. The impact of a risk on the owner of the
assets and the people depending on it, is reduced by the insurance .it partly compensates
the losses .insurance only applies to financial losses.

1. THE BUSINESS OF INSURANCE


Insurance companies are called insures. they insures :bring together person with similar
insurance interest (sharing the same risks) .
Collect the share and contribution (known as premium) from all of them ,
Pay out compensantion (known as claim) to those who suffer .Insurance is divided into
two parts.
Life an Insurance:-life insurance included all risk related to the lives of human being and
general insurance cover the other aspects.
NON –LIFE OF GENERAL INSURANCE:-General insurance have three classic
fictions viz. fire (dealing with all fire related risks),marine (dealing with all related risks
and ships) and miscellaneous (dealing with all their’s like liability ,fidelidy,motor ,crop
,personal accident ,etc.). Personal accident and sickness insurance which are related to
human .
Beings, is classified as non –India, but is classified as “life”: in any other countries.
The premium is based on expectation of the losses that are based on information through
the study of occurrences in the past and use of statically principals .there is an statistics ,a
“law of large no.) Variation will be less as a percentage .therefore the greater the no. of
risks included in the pool; the better chances that the assumption regarding the probility
of the risk occurring (on which premium calculation is based ) will be realized in
practice .hence ,the greater the spread of the business ,the better the expectations.
The insurer holds the position of a trusty as is managing .the common fund ,for and on
behalf the community of policy holder .it has to make certain that none is allowed to take
unfair advantage of the arrangement .that means the arrangement of the insurance
business require care to prevent entry of individual to he group ,whose risks are not
similar as well paying claims on losses that are not accidental. the amount decision to
allow entry is known as the processes of underwriting of risks .underwriting includes
determining the risks i.e. to evaluate how much risks exposure involved .the premium that
is changed is dependent on the determination of risk involve .

2.INSURANCE OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Investment are made out of saving and they are necessary for furthering economic
development .the life insurance company is a quit important in mobilizing saving of
people ,especially from the middle and lower income groups and these saving are
channeled into investment for economic growth .
Most of the life insurance companies have large fund that are accumulated through the
payment of small amount of premium of individual and these fund further the economic
development of the countries in which they do business .
These fund are collected and held in trust for the benefits of the policy holder .the
management of the life insurance company have to remember this aspects and take
decision keeping in mind the benefits of the community.
Business and trade also benefits through insurance .without insurance ,trade and
commerce is expose to perils and it will find it difficulty to face the impact of such events
3.ADVANTAGES

It is incorrect to say that life insurance is investment or means savings .the saving and
investment option are deposits in the banks ,in national saving certificate in mutual funds
and all o0ther savings certificates ,in mutual funds and all other saving instrumental
.money invested in buying share and stocks are at risks of being lost in the fluctuation of
the stock market .assuming there is no loss ,the money available at any time is the amount
invested plus appreciation .in life insurance the fund available better is not the total of
saving all ready period (premium paid) ,but the amount one wishes to have at the end of
saving period according to his choice .hence life insurance can not be substituted as there
are no other scheme that proved this kind benefits .

Life insurance has the following advantage s in comparison to other form of saving
.settlement is easy in case of death .facility of nomination and assignment makes the
collection of money by the heirs quicker .now some bank accounts provide facility of
nomination .creditor can be protected against attachment by courts but can not claim the
life insurance moneys. there are tax benefits in income tax and n capital gains .a life
insurance policy is property an can be transferred or mortgaged and loans can be raged
against the policy as market ability are better .

LITERATURE REVIEW

1. Aegon Religare Life enters health insurance
—P.V.Sivakumar

and Mr Pradeep Pandey, Vice-President (Health), at the launch of the health plan in
Hyderabad on Tuesday.

Hyderabad, Aug. 17,2010

Aegon Religare Life Insurance (ARLI) has entered into health insurance segment by
launching a fixed benefit health plan.

The Aegon Religare Health Plan will provide for room and medical expenses, intensive
care unit charges and reimbursement for the cover agreed upon even if the actual cost is
lesser, Mr Yateesh Srivastava, Chief Marketing Officer, ARLI, told newspersons here on
Tuesday.

“We have already soft-launched the plan and could sell 5,000 policies in four weeks. We
are targeting over 50,000 policies with a combined premium of Rs 20 crore from this
product, during the current fiscal year,” he said.
Available in four categories, the plan will provide a total benefit of Rs 4.90 lakh to Rs
12.25 lakh with an annual premium of approximately Rs 1,000 for a Rs 1 lakh cover for a
person, he added. On the product pipeline, Mr Srivastava said that the company was
awaiting approval from the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority for three
unit-linked insurance plans and one traditional product.

The ULIP products have been re-designed in tune with IRDA's recent norms. “Though
the products carry the old brand names, the substance will be different,” he added. As
announced earlier, Rs 450 crore of capital will be infused to the existing Rs 660-crore
capital base of the company, during the year. “We have already infused Rs 90 crore in
this,” he said. Aegon Religare is aiming to close 2010-11 with Rs 500 crore received
premium (as against Rs 166 crore last year), he added.

2. Aegon Religare eyes Web to sell health insurance


Kolkata, May 28 Encouraged
by good customer response to the online term insurance delivery model, Aegon Religare
Life Insurance is looking at selling health insurance on the Web, according to its
Managing Director and Chief Executive, Mr Rajiv Jamkhedkar.

The company, which started operations in 2008, is planning to launch its first health
insurance product in two months. “Looking at the response for our online term insurance
product iTerm, we are now exploring possibilities of making other upcoming policies like
health insurance available on the Web,” Mr Jamkhdekar said. He however maintained
that the company would need to get IRDA's approval before taking a call on this. iTerm,
which claims to be the cheapest term insurance policy in the country, has so far collected
about Rs 4.5 crore premium from more than 4,000 customers. The total premium
underwritten by the company in 2009-10 was Rs 166 crore. The premium charge of
iTerm is about 30 per cent lower than term policies sold in the agency model as it
discounts the commission charges.
“The average investment kitty in this policy is about Rs 12,000 and it is bought by
customers who are thoroughly aware of the market,” Mr Jamkhedkar said. The proposed
health policy, however, would have to be customised for the online version, he added.

The company was also looking at launching annuity products this year, he said, adding
that it was open to coming out with variable annuity if the regulator permits the same.
“Our foreign partner Aegon has a strong presence in this segment in the world market and
we expect the product to come up in India in one year,” he said.

time & place of his choice. Customer can come to e-Sales portal and determine ideal
insurance amount needed by him, compare it with other insurance products of the same

system to ensure information about customer and policy is tracked online and served

underwriting with the help of a rules engine. It's also integrated with a payment gateway

NEW FIXED-BENEFIT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN, AEGON

The plan offers coverage of all surgeries, guaranteed payment in case of claims
and a cashless facility at over 3,000 hospitals, a press release issued here stated.

"Medical expenses are increasing, making health insurance a must. However, it is


critical to have certainty of payout. A comprehensive fixed benefit plan plays a
very important role as this tends to remove the surprise element from claims. Our
plan is designed such to provide comprehensive coverage and fixed benefits,"
ARLI Chief Marketing Officer Yateesh Srivastava said.
The plan would be distributed through the company's regular channels and would
also be available online, the release said.

three years, which means in case of a claim in the first or second year, the
premium will not increase.

claim year (the maximum increase will be capped at 50 per cent) and can be
renewed till the age of 85.

Retirement Plans

The rising inflation has put the fear of the unseen in every working person’s life. Today,
more than ever, it is vital that you save for the golden years post retirement so that you
can maintain your lifestyle as today

SALES STRATEGY AND IMPLEMENTATION


1) Emphasize service and ongoing support. We must avoid selling only one policy at
the lowest price for each customer and concentration account selling which greatly
enhances client retention.
2) Build an Insurance Partnership. The customer does not want to shop every year for
a new broker. Concentrate on building a long term relationship with our customers
and make the client and our staff appreciate the value of a long-term relationship.
3) Focus on target markets. We must focus on personal and business customers that we
identify and select to insure, instead of allowing potential customers to choose us,
which could result in our brokerage attracting problem clients from other brokers.

MARKETING STRATEGY

1) Emphasize service and support.

2) Build a partnership business based on account selling.

3) Focus on senior, claims-free personal lines business and the profitable, well-run,
small family business.

4) Target small, non-franchise business that does not have access to group insurance
plans.

5) Investigate acquiring other brokerages in our area.

PROMOTION STRATEGY
We have depended in the past on a small advertisement in our local newspaper, listings in
the Yellow Pages, and word of mouth. We must begin to investigate alternate ways to put
our name in front of the public.

1) All advertising has to emphasize our differentiation point rather than price. We
will be developing a "Now what do I do?" message to emphasize the need for
dealing with Acme's insurance professionals so that in the event a loss occurs, you
know you have the proper protection.
2) We must sell the company, not the product. In spite of some companies' efforts to
minimize the importance of the broker, our clients still identify with the broker,
not the insurance company.
3) We must improve and increase our contacts with our clients. All clients should be
contacted before renewal to ensure covers are current and adequate. Also, new
insurance should be solicited. We are investigating the production of a company
newsletter or use of the I.B.A.O. newsletter which is distributed on a bi-annual
basis.
4) We have put our email address in our newspaper advertising, but we must be
careful about attracting clients from out of the area who may be difficult to service
and properly inspect.
5) Make contacts and support senior citizen groups and cottage associations. Identify
sports and hobby groups that involve seniors and cottagers.

DISTRIBUTION STRATEGY
1) Select Seniors We will give special attention to this market in our advertising. We
will make a concerted effort to support and sponsor seniors programs in our area.
We will seek out Cottage associations and offer support and advice to attract new
senior clients who are recently retired or about to in the near future.
2) Insurance Partners We will include inserts in renewal, endorsements, and
correspondence stressing the importance of the insured taking an active interest
and responsibility for trying to control the severity and number of claims. Our
staff should take every opportunity, when discussing insurance with a client, to
emphasize the consequences of multiple claims.
3) Business Partners Again we should encourage insureds to take responsibility for
controlling claims in partnership with their broker by installing alarm systems
and continuing to maintain and upgrade their property. We should stress the
benefit that good loss ratios help to control rates and ensure markets that want to
write their business.

POSITIONING STATEMENT

Our target market is Smalltown District. The ideal client is claims-free aged between 45 -
75 who owns his own home and car and is debt free. Has exhibited stable family patterns
and is known and respected in the community.

A similar profile should be used for commercial prospects with emphasis placed on the
well-run, profitable business that has exhibited good claims experience.

PRICING STRATEGY

Our customers are especially sensitive to value. We must ensure that our price and
service are perceived to be good value to our client.

Our markets must offer several payment options to our clients that are convenient to the
client, not just to the company. Example - payment on insured's preferred day of month,
not on the company's, and accepting payment by credit or debit card. Many insureds are
on a fixed income and receive their income on a set day of each month or a paycheck on a
particular day.

We encourage our companies to "Target Market." Many of our companies are now
focusing on what they have perceived to be profitable niche markets, where they can
offer a competitive product with little, if any, competition.

We are seeing our commercial markets now moving toward basic coverage and limiting
the "bells and whistles," all-risk products available to only those clients who have
modern, well-managed, profitable, low-risk operations. This should help stabilize pricing
and, even more important, ensure that there is an insurance market available for most
risks. Continued insistence by the industry on better protection, i.e. fire and burglar
alarms, upgrading of buildings, etc., have started to lower loss ratios.

Many of the larger insurance markets have increased minimum premiums to $1,000 for
any commercial package policy. Our Lloyds market should be able to accommodate these
customers with a minimum premium of approximately $600.

SALES STRATEGY

We want to emphasize the benefit of dealing with professionals who live and work in our
client's area. We know their needs and their problems and we have a local reputation to
protect, unlike an out-of-town market. If the out-of-town broker fails to provide proper
cover or advice, they lose one client. We could stand to lose many if the public perceives
a professional failure on our part.

Competitive prices for our identified target markets. Discounts of up to 25% for claims-
free seniors who renew their home insurance with us.

Careful inspection and the judicious use of deductibles and warranties for insureds using
wood stoves should help alleviate company concerns about solid fuel heating devices.
Competitive pricing is not an important factor to attract business because competition is
very limited for primary wood heat houses in our area. This may provide a chance to pick
up all of the insured's business because, in many instances, they contact us after being
told by their previous broker that, in spite of their claims-free status, the broker doesn't
want their house insurance.

Business partners provide us the opportunity to sell lower-priced, basic insurance


coverage to our client. Many clients have expressed interest in retaining part or all of the
insurance risk, especially for burglary. They feel that if they have installed central alarms
and bars, they can take the chance of self insurance.

Sales Programs

We are investigating sales incentives for our producers. They must encourage profitable
new business and have a retention component. Presently, our producers receive $10 for
every new policy written in our office, with the exception of recreational vehicles.

SALES FORECAST

The following table and related charts show our present sales forecast. We are projecting
sales to grow at a moderate but steady pace for the coming year and to continue into
1997.
.
SERVICE AND SUPPORT

Aegon Religare is really a group of small brokerages housed under one name and
location. Our producers are each responsible for a book of business. They sell, service,
handle claims and are responsible for their accounts receivable. We have found over the
years that our clients prefer to deal with one broker who is aware of their particular needs.

MILESTONES

We have listed our plan milestones in the table below.

INSURANCE BUSINESS PLAN


By focusing on its strengths, its present client base, and new value priced products in the
next year, Aegon Religare plans to increase gross sales by 10% and profit by 15%.

Our Keys to Success and critical factors for the next year are, in order of importance:

• Identify "Target Markets."


• Institute our Property inspection program.
• Begin our "Insurance Partners" program.
• Develop a profitable property program.
• Provide small businesses with an affordable basic business package.

Aegon religare has been profitable, but recently we have had declining market share and
this must be addressed. Therefore our goals are:

• To re-establish Aegon religare as the market leader in quality and value-priced


insurance products in Smalltown District.
• Establish good working relationships with our present insurance markets by
meeting with their decision makers and plotting a mutual plan for success. Get
commitments for support and products that we can market in our trading area
starting April 1st of Year 1.
• Investigate new markets that meet our marketing criteria by a) committing to
small rural brokerage; b) providing products suitable to our economic and social
climate; and c) plans for the upload and download of insurance policies.
• Provide sales incentives to staff to meet sales goals of 10%.
• Complete inspection of all Pilot homeowners within one month before renewal
date.
• Formulate plans to acquire another brokerage

Aegon religare is dedicated to providing insurance products that provide quality


protection with value pricing. We wish to establish a successful partnership with our
clients, our staff members, and our insurance companies, that respect the interests and
goals of each party.

Success will be measured by our clients choosing us because of their belief in our ability
to meet or exceed their expectations of price, service, and expertise.

In order to implement our strategic goals, we will focus on developing the following
tools.

1) Knowledgeable, friendly staff that can empathize with our consumers needs and
circumstances, especially in handling a loss.
2) Policies that meet or exceed the expectations of our clients, and that are affordable,
available, and understandable.
3) Policies and endorsements delivered on time with minimal errors.
4) A commitment to an annual insurance review for all of our clients. A phone call is
more than any direct mass marketer offers. We believe personal contact and service is
the cornerstone of our success.

Aegon religare primarily markets and services Personal Lines Insurance. Its customers
are mostly rural, lower income families or long time resident senior citizens who demand
value priced insurance premiums in keeping with their lower and fixed incomes.

We also provide insurance to small business, mostly family-run seasonal operations


primarily focused on the tourist trade.

Aegon religare is a privately incorporated company in the Smalltown district and is


licensed to transact both Life and General Insurance. The shares are held equally by John
Smith and Peter Smith.

In Nexttown, we operate from an 800 square foot, one-story brick veneer building
overlooking Lake Small, which again is owned by the principals of our firm. The office is
strategically located across from the Post Office.
We have stressed to our insureds the importance of good communication between the
broker and client to insure proper coverage is in place. We have noticed as our clients
become better informed about insurance that there has been a tremendous increase in
clients wishing in-depth discussions about their policy coverage and how they can get the
most value for their insurance dollar.

AEGON strength lies in the quality and depth of our products and staff. Our offices,
unlike our competition, are open six days a week. Because of our larger staff, we are able
to service our clients even when a client's broker is busy or out of the office on
inspections.

Company’s staff has specialists in commercial insurance that can properly service and
underwrite local business. We also have some quality commercial markets unavailable to
our competition.

The past few years have seen tremendous upheaval in the insurance industry. The number
of players has decreased in both the broker and company communities. The recession has
curtailed insureds from properly maintaining their homes and automobiles, and insurance
fraud has become a major issue for the entire insurance industry.

Brokers are concerned that in spite of commission reductions, quotas, contract


cancellations, and refusal to write new auto business by some markets, they now may find
themselves in competition with some of the traditional broker distribution companies that
are setting up direct marketing facilities and branches. The banks now have announced
they will open stand alone insurance offices to retail insurance.

In spite of the above, we believe that the independent broker will survive. We are more
automated than most service industries. We are close to the customer, regardless of some
insurance companies' attempts to sever the traditional broker-client relationship. Our
clients, in most cases, still do not care or know which company we place them with. They
trust our judgement in selecting the proper coverage and company to place them in.
We have depended in the past on a small advertisement in our local newspaper, listings in
the Yellow Pages, and word of mouth. However with the changes in the market today, we
must begin to investigate alternate ways to put our name in front of the public. We have
set out several criteria for our marketing campaign that include"

• All advertising has to emphasize our differentiation point rather than price.
• We must sell the company, not the product. In spite of some companies' efforts to
minimize the importance of the broker, our clients still identify with the broker,
not the insurance company.
• We must improve and increase our contacts with our clients.
• Make contacts and support senior citizen groups and cottage associations.

Based on these changes in our goals, outlook, and company culture, we anticipate that we
will be able to increase revenues substantially by year 3 of the plan and increase net profit
handsomely. The company does not anticipate any cash flow problems.

SERVICES

Aegon religare is committed to providing professional sales and service for its insurance
customers. We have established what we consider to be an excellent reputation in our
area, and are the largest multi-line insurance broker in our trading area.

1. SERVICE DESCRIPTION
Aegon religare provides home, automobile, and business insurance in Smalltown
District. We take pride in knowing that for over 50 years we have helped our clients to
find the best coverage at the right price that suits their needs and expectations. In the
event of a claim, our clients know that we are there to provide help and counsel to ensure
a fast, speedy claim settlement.

Like other independent brokers, we issue binders and new policies, endorsements and
process renewals. We have stressed to our insureds the importance of good
communication between the broker and client to insure proper coverage is in place. We
have noticed as our clients become better informed about insurance that there has been a
tremendous increase in clients wishing in-depth discussions about their policy coverage
and how they can get the most value for their insurance dollar. We also provide insurance
services to non-clients, such as lawyers and mortgagees, to ensure our mutual clients have
proper coverage and binding notes in place for the purchase of homes, businesses, and
automobiles.

2. COMPETITIVE COMPARISON

Our company's strength lies in the quality and depth of our products and staff. Our
offices, unlike our competition, are open six days a week. Because of our larger staff, we
are able to service our clients even when a client's broker is busy or out of the office on
inspections. Our staff has specialists in commercial insurance that can properly service
and underwrite local business. We also have some quality commercial markets
unavailable to our competition.
Since we are brokers, (not agents such as Co-operators), we have access to a range of
standard and specialty markets.

3. SALES LITERATURE

We have recently produced a pamphlet titled "Insurance Partners" which stresses that a
successful insurance partnership between the client, the broker, and the company is based
upon a new concept.

Not only do the broker and the company take responsibility for proper protection and
indemnity in the event of loss, but in the 1990's, the client must also take his share of
responsibility to insure the safety of his property by keeping it well maintained and using
qualified professionals to update or change the heating, electrical, and plumbing systems
in his home. We stress that multiple claims or claims arising out of poor maintenance
may adversely affect his insurance.

In addition to the above, our brokerage uses a number of boilerplate letters on our
computer system that are sent along with various types of policies explaining unique
features or limitations in the contracts to avoid possible Errors and Omissions claims.
They also encourage our clients to contact us about reviewing their coverage and promote
other products and services we provide.

4. FUTURE SERVICES

Although Stan Smith started out as a life insurance agent, the "life" part of our business
represents only 1% of our sales. We are looking to strengthen this part of our operation in
the future. Due to the complexity and number of life and disability products, we are
presently using an outside service: Atlantic-Smith Insurance out of North Town, although
two of our general insurance producers have life agent licenses.

We are in the process of setting up a substandard property market. We feel that there is a
need for this service and that it can be profitable if strictly underwritten with proper
controls in place.
MARKET ANALYSIS SUMMARY

Recent demographic studies in our area reveal a total year-round population of


approximately 13,000, which rises in the summer to approximately 25,000. We have a
relatively high number of seniors and many younger, newly-formed families dependent
on government assistance living mostly in a rural, unserviced, thinly populated area. This
makes it costly to service our clients. Long distance phone bills represent our second
largest expense (our two offices each have their own toll free phone numbers) and the
cost of visiting our insureds to do home inspections is time consuming due to the large
area we service.

We are targeting seniors which have proven to be a profitable, stable market for our
brokerage in spite of our present difficult economy.

We are fortunate that we have not yet had the intrusion to a large degree of mass
merchandising programs like "Silver Power." Smaller brokers have made inroads into our
traditional rural business, with low cost farm markets that sell home and auto insurance.
We understand that some of these markets are in a poor financial position and may cease
to be a factor in the future.

1. MARKET SEGMENTATION

Our market consists of senior citizens, lower-income young families (many of who are on
social assistance) and the small, family-run business (many of which are seasonal and
based on the tourist trade). There are a few industrial risks and those that are located here
are branches of larger industries which obtain their insurance through large brokers in
Bigtown.

Our target market is the seniors, family business, and middle income earners in our area.
Statistics show that over 42% of our permanent population is above 45 years of age. The
average family income is approximately $27,000 and the unemployment rate 9%.
We are cautious about encouraging business from lower income prospects since they tend
to have wood heat, homes in poor repair, and many attempt to install and repair their own
plumbing, wiring, and heating systems.

Another market of concern is out-of-area clients who may have been payment or claim
problems to local brokers and attempt to find a distant broker to provide coverage instead
of making the necessary adjustments in their own lifestyle to prevent claims.

Clients who have moved repeatedly can be difficult to obtain proper underwriting
information and past claims experience on, and we feel our staff is to be commended for
their ability to properly assess if a client should be placed to our standard markets or
would be better served by a specialty company.

2. SERVICE BUSINESS ANALYSIS

The past few years have seen tremendous upheaval in the insurance industry. The number
of players has decreased in both the broker and company communities. The automobile
product has, in the mind of the public, become unaffordable, unavailable, and impossible
to understand. The recession has curtailed insureds from properly maintaining their
homes and automobiles, and to exacerbate the situation, many clients have turned to
wood heat and started doing their own repairs and maintenance which may have
increased the number and severity of claims. Insurance fraud has become a major issue
for the entire insurance industry.

Our traditional close relationship with our companies has been strained. Brokers are
concerned that in spite of commission reductions, quotas, contract cancellations, and
refusal to write new auto business by some markets, they now may find themselves in
competition with some of the traditional broker distribution companies that are setting up
direct marketing facilities and branches. The banks, even though thwarted by the federal
government in its last budget to retail insurance from their premises, will continue
pressure on the government and now have announced they will open stand alone
insurance offices to retail insurance.
In spite of the above, we believe that the independent broker will survive. We are more
automated than most service industries. We are close to the customer, regardless of some
insurance companies' attempts to sever the traditional broker-client relationship. Our
clients, in most cases, still do not care or know which company we place them with. They
trust our judgement in selecting the proper coverage and company to place them in.

The new federal government is close to adopting a new automobile contract that
hopefully will make it affordable, understandable, and available to our clients. A
profitable automobile product will entice the companies to aggressively seek new sales
and more brokers will see companies offering contracts.

Upload/download capabilities are in many brokers offices, including our own. This will
cut costs, improve efficiency and accuracy, and help us meet the competition from banks
and direct writers. Companies that truly value and trust the broker distribution system will
align themselves with professional brokers and grant more underwriting authority similar
to Lloyds.

3. COMPETITION AND BUYING PATTERNS

The main volume of income for our brokerage is generated by automobile premiums
because they are relatively higher priced to insure than property, and because automobile
insurance is mandatory in the region. As stated previously, our success is dependent on
our staff and our companies convincing our clients and prospective clients that price,
although important, is not the only criteria for the purchase of insurance. Our advertising
stresses that we have two offices, open six days a week with after-hours support and we
have been an active, concerned, community involved, local business since 1938.

Still, price is very important and we must work with our markets to ensure that our
insurance products are available and affordable to a large part of the market. It is the
broker's job to ensure the client understands what he is buying, and if circumstances
dictate a lower-priced product, we must make our insured aware of the trade-off in
coverage versus price.
4.DISTRIBUTING A SERVICE

Our trading area is rural. Premiums are relatively low and therefore not subject to large
brokerages or specialty direct writers mounting aggressive advertising campaigns to bring
in business. There are few group plans providing insurance coverage with the exception
of our teachers. Smalltown has two independent brokers and a Co-Operators agent,
Nexttown has two independent brokers, and Southtown has one. We have just started to
see some move by locals to "Silver Power" and other specialty retailers who advertise on
radio and television. The banks are still a future unknown.
