The Protection Sellers listed below are those that act in the capacity of MGAs (Managing General Agents).  These are companies able to negotiate contracts as principals but using capital provided by relationships with one or more insurance companies. 

MGAs typically are only able to transact smaller contracts and may have regionally focused operations possibly with specialized industry knowledge and expertise (eg agriculture). Some MGAs may offer a hybrid model whereby for larger transactions they may switch to a Broking model.
