What is a Broker?
An insurance broker is an individual who works as an intermediary between an insurance company and a consumer. An insurance broker helps the consumer find their ideal insurance policy that will best cover their needs.
Purchasing insurance can be a complicated process, often involving extensive research. An insurance broker will do this research on behalf of their client.
Insurance brokers are typically paid by commissions and fees they earn on the insurance policies they sell.
