HOUSTON, TX, September 18th, 2019 – The Risk Specialty Group, LLC has been selected to be part of an elite group of independent insurance agencies around the United States participating in the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA or the Big “I”) “Best Practices” Study Group.


An IIABA affiliated state association or an insurance company must first nominate the agency which then must qualify based on outstanding customer retention, growth, stability and financial management. More than 1,300 agencies were nominated this year, but only 267 agencies throughout the U.S. actually qualified for inclusion in the 2019 Best Practices Study. The Risk Specialty Group was selected as one of the 267 high performance agencies.


The Best Practices Study was initiated by IIABA in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance. The annual study of leading independent insurance agencies, which is conducted for IIABA by Reagan Consulting of Atlanta, Ga., documents the business practices of these high performance agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.


The Risk Specialty Group, LLC was founded in 2009 and specializes in providing insurance and risk management solutions to Design Professionals, which include architects, engineers, surveyors, environmental consultants and other services within the “built environment”.


Travis Landers, President of The Risk Specialty Group said, “We are excited to have been selected among the top performing agencies this year and are committed to utilizing our unique mix of people, processes and technology to deliver high value services to our clients.”
