Agency Valuation Calculator

The Agency Valuation Calculator shows a fair market value range for an agency based on current market conditions. The tool provides a baseline range of value, whereas actual pricing for an external sale or internal perpetuation would be driven by additional factors and considerations. A full valuation report will give you a more in-depth assessment of pricing based on a thorough assessment of the agency's book of business and an overall assessment of the agency's risk.
