Schaumburg, IL (August 12, 2013) - Assurance was named the 23rd largest property and casualty independent insurance agency in the United States by Insurance Journal, one of the nation's most comprehensive and respected insurance publications.

Each year, Insurance Journal posts the rankings for the "Top 100 Property & Casualty Independent Agencies." Assurance rose nine spots, up from #32 in 2012, by posting over $40 million in P&C revenue. Additionally, Assurance has catapulted itself to become the second largest independent insurance brokerage in Illinois with $60 million in total revenue last year and a 14 percent average organic growth rate the past ten years.

"We're proud to be included, once again, in Insurance Journal's annual Top 100,” said Dan Klaras, president of P&C at Assurance. "We've experienced tremendous growth over the past few years in all areas of the company, including our P&C division. This award is a testament to the industry experience, as well as niche expertise, of our brokers and support staff.”

The Top 100 list is solely comprised of privately-owned firms whose business is primarily retail, instead of wholesale. The rankings are determined by submissions from independent P&C agencies.
