PLM operates on an open brokerage basis meaning that we do not appoint our producers or have premium or volume commitments. We work with any broker that chooses to pursue a piece of wood business whether it be one account or 100 accounts. Most agencies enjoy a linear relationship where the carrier interacts exclusively with their agent, and the agent interacts exclusively with their client, the insured.
The PLM distribution strategy is more of a triangular relationship. We build relationships with our brokers AND our insureds. As opposed to representing the carrier as their agent, in the PLM world, you would be representing the insured.
