The Brokerage Concept
Insurance carriers recognize that brokers bring knowledge of specific markets and most importantly, relationships, to the table. The key, of course, is to use a broker that is familiar with you, understands the intent of your coverage and the role insurance is to play in protecting you.
The advantages of using a broker over going direct seems overwhelming. A one-stop process to obtain an analysis of your insurability and claims filing assistance at no additional cost are all benefits of using a broker versus a direct agent.
In an age that emphasizes generating more production with less effort, employing the services of a broker appears to be a first step in achieving a strategic advantage.
