Why use an insurance broker?
Why use an insurance broker? What a good question to ask when considering your insurance needs and the many different insurance alternatives that are open for you to consider.
So why use an insurance broker? Well, there are several good reasons to use an insurance broker and below we will outline a few.
Insurance Brokers work for you, the client, not the insurer.
In the world of insurance, an insurance broker works for the client who engages them. This means that the insurance broker is literally on the side of the client and working for the client. That is great news when you find a good insurance broker. An insurance broker with expertise in the specifics of your industry. You have an insurance professional that is working for you.
Insurance Brokers know the ins and outs of the different insurance products - they are the experts.
Insurance brokers are experts in insurance. It is the job of an Insurance Broker to know the details of what is included and excluded in various insurance products. This intimate insurance knowledge enables insurance brokers to know what will best align with a client's needs and requirements. With a good insurance broker, you can trust that the terms and clauses that may bamboozle, can be deciphered and understood.
Insurance Brokers understand the insurance claims process and can help you navigate it.
Making an insurance claim can be a daunting task. Do you have the right information, have you completed the forms correctly, what is the process that you should be following. At claim time, having an insurance broker to help navigate the path is a great benefit. Remember an Insurance Broker is working for you, not the insurance company, and so they work hard to get you the outcomes that your policy entitles you to.
Insurance Brokers can help you identify & mitigate risk in your business
Spending all day thinking about risk identification and mitigation across a myriad of clients, gives an insurance broker a unique perspective. Insurance brokers are well placed to help you manage risk within your business. Often Insurance Brokers can suggest process improvements and business changes that can both reduce the likelihood and severity of an insurable event occurring. So ask your broker for assistance and guidance beyond the insurance policies they recommend.
