Why use an insurance broker?

Some risks are easy to identify such as potential damage to physical property. Others are unforeseen until a claim is brought against you meaning if you are incorrectly insured you could be in trouble. In addition, with so much choice, it can be hard to know which provider or policy to choose.

By engaging a professional insurance broker, you are engaging the support and knowledge of a professional who understands the insurance market and can help you get the best policy for your needs. Acting on your behalf, they will also work with you ensure the best possible outcome in the event of a claim.

What is the difference between an insurance broker and insurance agent?

An insurance broker works independently. They will attempt to source the most appropriate insurance policies on your behalf at the most competitive premium they can negotiate for you.

An insurance agent, on the other hand, represents an insurance company or companies and therefore has no direct responsibility to ensure you are getting the most appropriate policy available. They will only select policies which represent the insurer/s interests.

Is it more expensive to use an insurance broker?

This is a common misconception. An insurance broker will negotiate the most competitive premiums they can on your behalf. This means in some cases premiums could be cheaper if you use an insurance broker.

In other cases, however, the premiums may be higher because of the broader coverage negotiated by your broker. This could mean your business would be covered in circumstances that the cheaper option did not cover.
