Paul Anema
President, SIAA Partners

Welcome to SIAA Partners, your SIAA master agency for northwest Iowa, southwest Minnesota and the state of South Dakota. We are dedicated to the creation, retention, and growth of independent agents. Independent agents provide the most personal and effective service available, and set the standards for our industry.

We provide support to make you powerful in the marketplace.  This support includes training in underwriting standards and mentoring with any agency management issue.

We also provide the most powerful tool an independent agent needs, access to major insurance carriers through our contracted appointments.

In these times of hard markets, with insurance companies leaving entire states or not writing certain lines of business, it's very hard for a small agency to stay in business.  The SIAA program is a clear alternative to selling or merging with another agency.  You remain completely independent, but have the stability of a large agency.

As you review this Web site, you will learn who our insurance carriers are and how important SIAA Partners can be for the success and growth of your independent insurance agency.

After you have reviewed this material, please email me at or call me at 8OO-831-8545 in Sanborn, Iowa.  Additionally you can email Dick Applequist, Vice President, at or call Dick at 800-332-5310 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Dick and I look forward to hearing from you and helping you grow.

Sincerely yours,

Paul Anema
