According to MetLife’s inaugural Broker and Consultant Study released today, more than half (52%) of brokers and consultants with large clients (those with 1,000 or more employees) are very optimistic about the growth potential of their firms as are approximately one-third (31%) of those with small and mid-sized clients.
