If an agency wants cash for an expansion or an acquisition, it can be hard to come by, as agencies' most valuable asset -- its book of business -- can be difficult for traditional lenders to collateralize.

He gave IJ a brief outline of this new borrowing option at the Professional Independent Insurance Agents of Illinois convention in Springfield.
