An insurance broker is a specialist in insurance and risk management. Brokers act on behalf of their clients and provide advice in the interests of their clients. A broker will help you identify your individual and/or business risks to help you decide what to insure, and how to manage those risks in other ways. Insurance Brokers can give you technical advice that can be very useful if you need to make a claim.

Brokers can help arrange and place the cover with the chosen insurer and can often provide advice on how to make the most of your insurance budget.
