Texas Agency Joins UBA's Global Network of Independent Employee Benefits Advisory Firms

United Benefit Advisors (UBA), the nation’s leading independent employee benefits advisory organization, announces Insgroup, Inc. as the latest addition to its family of Partner Firms. With offices in Houston and Austin, Insgroup is one of the nation’s top 100 independent strategic risk and insurance brokers and is the fourth largest in Houston. In 2015, they were named a Top Workplace in Houston by the Houston Chronicle.

Brian Kapiloff, President of Insgroup, says, “We are very excited about our new partnership with UBA. The employee benefits world continues to change rapidly. Having access to the tools and vendors within UBA will help us maintain and improve the edge we need in delivering a strong value add to our clients. The ability to connect with our fellow UBA Partners across the country gives us the forum to share strategy and information in a way we didn’t have before. This is extremely beneficial to Insgroup and ultimately our clients.”

For more than 35 years, Insgroup provides high-quality service in the areas of employee benefits, commercial insurance brokerage, risk management and personal insurance solutions. Insgroup’s employees have an unwavering commitment to help every client achieve his or her insurance goals. Their devotion to their clients is apparent in all of the different insurance practice areas, which is the reason behind the company’s reputation for relentless client advocacy, integrity, and exceptional service.

“Benefits agencies should not only be great at providing advice to their clients, but also for heeding that advice themselves. I am thoroughly impressed that Insgroup was named a 2015 Top Workplace in Houston,” says UBA CEO Les McPhearson. “This recognition goes a long way in showing the character of the company and its employees. I look forward to our collaborative efforts together.”

As the newest Partner Firm of UBA, Insgroup joins a network of employee benefits advisory firms that serve employers of all sizes across the United States, Canada, and Europe. As a combined group, UBA’s annual employee benefit revenues rank it among the top five employee benefit advisory organizations in the U.S.
