Insurance Clusters Not immune from Trade Secret LiabilityPDF
Craig Robson's article, "Insurance Clusters Not Immune from Trade Secret Liability," was published in the Insurance Journal on March 23, 2015.
From the article...
"An insurance cluster — sometimes called an alliance, network or aggregator — is a group of agents and brokers combined under a common association for mutual support and the ability to market their individual books of business as part of a group.
Clusters provide independent brokers and agents access to larger markets, new lines of business, profit sharing and other services, while still maintaining the ownership of their own books. The association generates revenue through a percentage of the profit sharing and membership fees."
