We built the MGA we would want to work with.
Paragon Insurance Holdings' leadership knows the insurance business.
We've launched MGA and carrier operations, raised capital, acquired and sold companies ... and we know the challenges retail agents, MGAs and carriers face.
That's why we set out to build a new kind of MGA on our own terms – the kind we would want as our business partner.
Contact us to see if we're the right partner to take your capabilities to the next level.
