A record-setting transactional year for a broker association has highlighted the need for the newly created National Association of Registered Agents and Brokers.

In its 2014 annual report, the National Insurance Producer Registry reported a significant increase in broker-related transactions in 2014—up 35 percent over the previous five years, the group said. It processed a total of 22 million transactions and database inquiries last year.

"In 2014, NIPR implemented 96 new licensing initiatives, working with 27 different jurisdictions.
