Introduction to an insurance intermediary

Insurance companies provide insurance coverage to ensure businesses and individuals remain protected at all times. While the type of insurance varies depending on one's needs (life insurance, state insurance, etc.) it is crucial to cover yourself against the unexpected. 

When choosing your insurance plan, an insurance broker can save you time, money, and worry. Indeed, in a similar fashion to accountants or lawyers who provide professional advice based on years of training and experience, a qualified broker can do the same with your insurance.

An insurance brokerage company can give you the best quotes available on the market for the type of policy you are seeking. 

In this article, we will further explain the insurance intermediaries' role and how they operate. Moreover, we will list the benefits that come along and how you can take advantage of them.

What is an insurance broker?

In the simplest way, insurance brokers or agents sell and negotiate insurance plans for remuneration. The brokerage company acts as the middle man between insurance companies and individuals. 

The role of the insurance broker is to properly assess a customer's needs and redirect them towards the adequate insurance plan. 

A good insurance broker is experienced and values the client's satisfaction over financial compensation. Building a long-lasting and trustful relationship whilst providing the best quality service is the key to a successful broker.

What are the benefits of choosing an insurance broker?

Expert advice

When working with an insurance broker, you benefit from a qualified assessment of your situation. You also benefit from a non-biased opinion when it comes to insurance plans since they are not directly attached to the broker. 

Evaluation of risk exposure

An insurance broker works along your side to evaluate your risk exposure. By doing so, the insurance agent or broker will measure your potential financial loss resulting from your activity. Keep in mind that it is in the broker's interest to help you hedge your risks.
