ONE SIZE DEFINITELY DOES NOT FIT ALL….
In our business, you can reach a crossroads. You realize you have some important decisions to make.
Perhaps you want to broaden your product offerings or increase insurance market access.
Perhaps you feel “stuck in the mud” because it’s hard to grow and you’re spending too much time on back-office issues.
Or you or one of your partners is thinking about estate issues, exiting the business or retiring.
For whatever reason, you’re beginning to consider some form of a strategic transaction.
Some other acquirers may insist on buying 100% of your business. But at Capacity, our approach is different. We look for business partners, not targets. We look to grow businesses, not simply fold them in. Often we buy less than 100%. We look to create a win-win for all of us. Our approach is highly flexible and tailored to suit your needs and objectives.

YOUR TRANSACTION WITH US
We don’t pigeon-hole you
When Capacity approaches an agency about a new business partnership, there’s no rigid, preconceived “plan” that we expect you to follow. We listen to you, and we’re flexible about how we approach an investment. We work together to determine ways to help solve your problems and achieve your objectives.
We take partial interests
Sure, we’ve completed 100% acquisitions. But most of our strategic investments involve the purchase of 50% – 70% interest in companies.
We align our interests with yours
We are firm believers in the idea that we should structure the transaction so that we both benefit as your business grows. We don’t view transactions as a zero-sum game. We’re committed to the concept of working together so that “1+1=3” for all parties involved.
We preserve your name
You’ve made a name for yourself in the business. And that name carries a good deal of equity. After you partner with Capacity, together we’ll select a name for your business that enables you to keep the essence of your company name.
We leave you in charge
You’ve done well over the years as an independent agency. And we respect that. So we don’t try to consolidate your business into ours, like most other acquirers. Your business remains a standalone entity, and you continue to make the day-to-day decisions to run the business.
Access to Capacity’s Resources
By partnering with us, we help your business grow by providing it with access to our
extensive array of partner resources.
AFTER YOUR TRANSACTION WITH US
Long-term value creation
Unlike other acquirers, we don’t seek to buy your firm, reduce expenses and quickly sell or go public. We take a long-term view, because we believe the profit over time is potentially greater for us both.
Access to top-rated carriers
We place business with approximately 100 insurance companies, and we are in the top tier “President’s Club” with about 20 major insurers. When you become our strategic partner, you gain access to markets your firm didn’t have before, as well as access to their production clubs and decision makers.
High commissions & contingencies
We receive high commissions and high contingent payments on new and renewal business. Then, we share these with our business partners based on production. And, given our size, we’re generally not concerned with minimum premium requirements.
Our partners become your solutions
We offer an expansive range of standard and customized insurance and financial products for numerous types of businesses, industries and individuals. When you join forces with The Capacity Group, you instantly gain access to those products, and can offer them to your customers.
Partner support services
If you wish, we can offer you back-office services — such as accounting, IT, human resources, and licensing — to help you streamline internal processes, reduce operating costs and make your business more profitable. These back-office services are offered at our cost, as a service to our business partners.
Innovation & technology
We have the technology and customer service capabilities to help make your business more productive. Also, through an affiliated company, we have access to proprietary data analytics software which will help you better understand your business and grow.
Reputation for customer satisfaction
We’re committed to the individual needs of our (and your) clients, and we rank consistently high in customer satisfaction ratings. Our unique ability to “get the job done anytime and anywhere” has earned us a reputation for outstanding professionalism and customer service.
