Why choose an Insurance Broker

Insurance forms an important part of the risk management strategy for your business as it offers financial protection when things go wrong. Of course, finding the right insurance solutions can be easier said than done and many business owners find it difficult to find the time to arrange insurance. If you’re trying to navigate your way around the often-complex world of insurance and need a little help, it might be time to speak with an insurance broker.

Here are some reasons why you should consider utilising an Insurance Broker.


One less worry

Brokers are experts in insurance and risk and can provide you with advice on the insurance your business really needs to survive and thrive – not just what you think it might need. They know the insurance markets, and they know the risks facing businesses of all types, so you can be confident that the insurance you end up with will protect your business in the event of a claim.


Making your life easier

We all seem to be busier than ever, so it’s important to take time out every once in a while, so why spend hours of your precious time searching for the right insurance for you when a broker already knows the market inside out? They have spent the time unraveling policies and understanding what is really covered, so you don’t have to.


The personal touch

All good insurance brokers deliver a personalised service. They take time to understand your business and build long-term relationships with their clients. It’s not unusual for brokers to offer such good service that they retain clients for years – even decades. You can’t guarantee that sort of dedication with a computer now, can you?


Saving the day at claims time

Research suggests that the process of resolving a claim with insurers can be even more stressful than the incident that caused the claim itself! Nobody wants that stress, but when you work with a broker they will handle the claims process for you, giving you one less thing to worry about. Better yet, if you use a broker your claim is statistically more likely to be paid, and at a higher level. A broker works for you, not the insurance company.


On-going expertise

Allied to the earlier point about insurance not being that exciting to the layman, if you work with an insurance broker, they can advise you on the latest and emerging risks impacting on your area of business because they stay on top of these things as a matter of course and are aware of the latest insurance products on the market to protect against them.
