Advisr Frequently Asked Questions

Overview

Insurance brokers help businesses and people to understand the risks that they face. They are experts at finding insurance coverage to reduce the economic impact when something goes wrong and a loss event occurs. Insurance brokers work for their clients and not for the insurers who provide the underlying insurance product.

Advisr connects people with an insurance broker they can trust. Advisr helps you to find an insurance broker who has expertise in the areas you are looking for. With insurance brokers from all over Australia, you can find and connect with an insurance broker that is right for you.

Insurance provides a guarantee that the impact you face, predominantly financial, during a loss event can be reduced. Some insurance is required by law to operate a business and other insurances are entered into voluntarily to provide cover and reduce the impact that a person or business might experience from potential loss events.

Advisr exists to connect people with an insurance broker they can trust. We are independent, transparent and seeking to connect customers with the right insurance broker for their needs. We do this by showcasing insurance brokers based on their category or industry expertise or by their location.

Advisr highlights both the individual insurance broker and the brokerage that they work for. We know that the name on the door and the person you deal with are important.

Advisr is based on trusted referrals, given by real customers, and we work with expert insurance brokers to enable them to educate and inform people who are looking for assistance with their insurance. Advisr connects people with an Insurance Broker they can trust.

Great question. Firstly, it is worth saying that Advisr is independent, transparent and 100% focused on delivering a great experience for you that helps to find an insurance broker you can trust.

We will be honest when an Ad is an Ad.

Advisr makes money through a few avenues.

  1. Insurance brokers and brokerages can opt to have an Advisr Featured profile. Advisr Featured profiles are shown on our homepage and given increased exposure on relevant insurance category pages. Advisr Featured profiles are randomly shown and brokers and brokerages need to be experts in the category they are listed in. Our fees are a flat monthly or annual subscription and provide brokers with increased exposure to a highly relevant audience.
  2. Sometimes brokers need some help creating content and our editorial team is engaged to assist them as and when required.
  3. Integrated advertising placements are an additional way we are remunerated.

We're happy to be transparent in letting you know how we make money and if you want to know more, then feel free to connect directly with our CEO, Andy Jamieson.

Advisr is independent of all insurance companies and insurance brokerage clusters, networks and groups. We work with any insurance company, insurance broker or brokerage or authorised representative where we see a way to support the intermediated insurance space.

So, if there is an insurance company, insurance broker or another insurance expert that we're not engaged with and you'd like us to, then please let us know and we'll engage with them.

No, Advisr is not a comparison engine. Advisr doesn't simply compare insurance based on price. At Advisr, we realise the value of good independent advice and want to make it easy for you to find an expert insurance broker or authorised representative that you can trust.

Advisr works for both businesses and individuals. As the insurance brokers listed on Advisr can service clients across the size and scope of the market.

Advisr exists so you can find the right insurance broker that you are looking for. So regardless of your size or complexity, finding an Insurance Broker via Advisr can help you manage whatever insurance requirements you have.

Great question! Advisr only provides factual advice and all content is not general advice or personal advice.

All posts written by authorised insurance brokers or authorised representatives highlight the associated author and their regulatory information, such as their AFSL, AR number, CAR number and ABN. These posts are provided by licensed insurance brokers and authorised representatives.

Our CEO, Andy Jamieson. He’d love to hear your thoughts, feedback, questions and comments to help us to understand how we are going at connecting businesses and insurance brokers.

About Insurance Brokers

Insurance brokers operate on behalf of their customers. Insurance brokers understand both the potential risks that an individual or business may face and also the various insurance policy options and insurance providers that exist across the market.

Insurance brokers can help customers with hard to place risks to find an insurance provider that can meet their needs.

Insurance Brokers work for the customer and are independent of the insurers that they engage with on behalf of their clients. Insurance Brokers work for their customers and have their customers' best interests at heart. Insurance Brokers do not work for the insurer. Insurance Brokers help their clients to find and source available insurance that matches their needs and requirements.

Insurance Agents work for the insurance company that they represent. The Insurance Agent is aligned to the insurer whose policies they represent and sell. An Insurance Agent is not independent from the insurance company that they represent.

Insurance brokers help clients to reduce their risk by sourcing and matching their clients with appropriate insurance products. Insurance brokers work for their customers. Insurance brokers focus on understanding their customers' risks and exposure and their insurance requirements.
