Insurance brokers are insurance professionals who act independently of insurers. They provide advice and arrange appropriate cover for you through one or more insurance companies.
When an insurance broker acts for you, its role is to thoroughly assess your situation, and develop an insurance package to suit your needs and protect your assets. This package may combine products from a range of insurers, or just one, depending on your needs.
Insurance brokers deal with the insurer on your behalf, and take responsibility for keeping you informed, up to date, and covered.
