What does an insurance broker do?
In Austria insurance intermediaries fall into three broad groups: Insurance Representatives employed by an insurance company, self-employed Insurance Agents who are tied to one or a few insurance companies, and the independent Insurance Broker.
The employed representatives and tied agents advise and give act as agents of the respective insurance company and are therefore first and foremost obligated to this insurance company.
Insurance brokers are legally obliged to be independent and objective in their advice and they have to present the best possible insurance contract for their customers, built on their respective situation and on the basis of comprehensive market analysis.
As an insurance broker, we primarily represent the interests of our customers – which is a great advantage for you, when dealing with a tricky claim, with the negotiation of important contractual clauses, or when setting the premium!
Our independence is guaranteed by our owner structure
As a family-run business, we are not dependent on investors, we can plan for the long term and focus on the interests of our employees and customers.
This we are proud of!
As already mentioned, insurance brokers are legally obliged to provide objective advice and to represent the interests of their customers.
At the same time however, insurance brokers, just like the other groups of intermediaries, are generaly paid by the insurance company via commissions.
This is repeatedly criticized because the insurer could influence the type and amount of commission on the insurance broker and thus on your advice.
In our opinion, this concern is unfounded. In addition to the strong competition on the insurance market, the objectivity of insurance advices is also ensured by the statutory and professional regulations that are very strict for insurance brokers.
This is why consumer protection organizations advise consumers to seek advice from independent insurance brokers, before taking out insurance.
