What does an Insurance Broker do?

An Insurance Broker arranges insurance policies for clients. You’ll discuss available policy options and assist clients to decide which type of insurance would best suit their needs. Insurance Brokers help clients with the application process and act as a liaison between clients and financial institutions such as banks or insurance companies. You may receive a commission for any insurance policies you arrange.

Insurance Brokers should have good customer service skills and be able to communicate well with a range of clients. You’ll need to understand insurance systems and procedures and be familiar with relevant legislation. Insurance Brokers need to have strong attention to detail and must be able to manage their time well.
