Why Use An Insurance Broker?

The main reason people use a broker is to obtain professional advice about their insurance needs. Using a broker also alleviates the need to deal directly with insurance companies, saving you precious time. We manage your portfolio completely, providing you with one contact point for all of your insurance requirements. No more waiting in phone queues or dealing with impersonal call centres.

Our primary role is to look after your interests in all matters relating to Insurance and Risk Management. Although we have cemented strong relationships with the major insurance companies, we do not work for them. We work solely for you, our client.

We offer a complete portfolio review service. We can review all your current coverage and make recommendations where appropriate. This service is excellent for busy professionals.

We also have access to premium finance, which allows you to pay for your insurance monthly. This is particularly useful for new businesses where cash flow is tight in the first year. It can also help spread a large insurance cost over the year.

An insurance brokerage is a licensed, professional intermediary that represents the interests of clients, both consumers and businesses, in the purchase of insurance and risk products. Your broker will also handle any claims that may arise from an insured event. Whether its business, life, home or motor insurance, the broker practitioners that work for these firms provide advice and assistance to make sure you’re properly protected.

A NIBA affiliated brokerage can save you time, money and worry. Importantly these firms are run by Qualified Practising Insurance Brokers. Like an accountant or lawyer who provides you with professional advice based on years of training and experience, a Qualified Practising Insurance Broker can do the same with your insurance.

What do I ask? 
Just as you would when hiring anyone to take care of your needs, you’ll want to ask your prospective insurance broker some detailed questions to make sure he/she is perfect for you.
