WHY INDEPENDENT?The UBA Advantage

The attention and focus an independent agency can offer, with the resources and support of a national organization.

Agencies in our industry are either investing and growing, or they are selling to one of many industry aggregators. Nineteen years ago we saw competitors cashing checks and selling to banks. The new bank owners began to put the agency’s return on equity ahead of the client’s return on investment, and predictably, banks in benefits have come and gone. Now we see private equity and public benefit advisors fueling a new wave of aggregation through mergers and acquisitions. Having seen this story, we would rather compete with a private equity firm than sell to one. So, along the way LHD has committed to protecting independent agencies all over the country.

We remain FIERCELY independent. In 2001, LHD founded United Benefit Advisors (UBA), an Indianapolis based not-for-profit dedicated to building a collaborative environment and raising the water line for independent insurance agencies across the country. UBA has grown to serve more than 140 of the country’s premier independent employee benefits firms, over 800 advisors, and 30,000 employer groups around the world. Today, UBA ranks among the six largest benefit brokerages in United States with combined revenues exceeding $550,000,000.
