Loosely, people often use the terms ‘broker’ and ‘agent’ interchangeably. What is the difference between broker and agent?
In the realm of insurance services, a clear distinction exists between brokers and agents. A broker serves as a representative for multiple insurance companies, offering access to a diverse range of products from different insurers. This enables clients to make informed decisions through comprehensive product comparisons and unbiased recommendations that prioritize their best interests. Brokers boast skilled and experienced teams dedicated to providing top-notch guidance and support directly to customers, ensuring accountability for mandated services.
In contrast, an agent exclusively represents a single insurance company, limiting clients to the products offered by that specific insurer. While agents may have varying degrees of expertise, their recommendations tend to be influenced by their company's interests. Back-office support for quality assistance may not always align with the broker's system. In the case of agents, the accountability lies with the insurance company they represent, emphasizing the importance of understanding the differences when seeking insurance advice and services.
