Independent Agent

An insurance agent who sells policies on behalf of several different companies. That is, an independent agent is self-employed and keeps commissions from whatever company for which he/she sells policies. Theoretically, an independent agent can offer objective advice, though if one company offers higher commissions than the others this can create a perverse incentive.
