Empowering and Defending You
From the Insurance Industry

Making buyers feel more in control by educating them throughout every process

Our Purpose

We exist to empower and defend the buyer from the insurance industry

Our History

After a career as a Property & Casualty and Workers’ Compensation Insurance Broker, Stewart Hargrove, President of Insurance Advocacy Group, started his company in 2002 and was determined to help buyers with their property & casualty insurance negotiations. When the insurance buyer is relieved of the burden of becoming an insurance expert, it’s a financial game changer with IAG on their team.


Stewart believed then, as he does now, that disenfranchised insurance buyers needed an advocate, liberating them from the insurance industry. His approach is to make buyers feel more in control by educating them throughout the process. He created a team of expert advocates who provide practical information and deliver results. 


At IAG, we're proud of the financial, claims and coverage results we’ve managed for our customers. Our philosophy is simple: when all interested parties (Buyer, Agent/Broker, and Underwriter/Carrier) can work together on the same level of knowledge, everyone wins. Our job is to question the status quo and to manage insurance with a deeper understanding of the detailed workings of the industry and how those details might influence your cost, coverage and claims. We’re well informed and use our insurance experience to level the communication playing field to drive results.

Stewart Hargrove is the president of Insurance Advocacy Group (IAG) who works with mid-market leaders to empower and defend them from the Insurance Industry. Stewart attended Hampden Sydney College in Virginia. He graduated in 1980 with a degree Managerial Economics. Stewart has been in the insurance industry for over four decades, founding IAG in 2002. Stewart believes that disenfranchised insurance buyers absolutely need an advocate on their side to protect them from the Insurance Industry. Stewart’s advocates and team have produced significant financial results helping clients across a variety of industries. Stewart is a CPCU; trained, certified and awarded.

Here's Some Client Feedback:

“IAG worked with my trusted insurance agent to build a better insurance product for me at a better cost.”
