Where does this Market data come from? Collected from 2,500 insureds and 40 Wholesalers and Brokers, Advisen's electronic program library exceeds 1,200,000 program entries. Since we know every Market associated with each program, we reverse-engineered this benchmarking functionality.

Risk Managers see how many markets might be available for an

upcoming renewal or a new placement. Advisen's WWWW function provides independent verification as part of your Advisen subscription rather than a fee you might pay a consultant.

Brokers use WWWW on Advisen for added color in helping to find the best Market for their client. Locating a Market with a desired rating is also a key reason that brokers use WWWW to supplement their marketing efforts. All of the WWWW output downloads easily to Microsoft Word or Excel so you can make easy presentations to your clients.

To access WWWW, go to the Prospecting & Peers dropdown menu and select Who Writes What Where. Choose the Program (Coverage and Line of Business) you are trying to place as well as the company's industry.
