Do you also believe that Insurance Broker and Insurance Agent are the same?
The answer is No. Insurance Broking is an organization licensed and controlled by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India.
Insurance Broking has a wider scope of approach when it comes to selecting the right policy for you. Because an Insurance Broker can extend their approach to all the insurance companies. They act as your representative to the insurance company.
Whereas Agents act as Insurance Company’s representative for which they hold the license. Hence their approach is limited to the single insurance company.
Since Insurance Broking is an entity and not an individual, they have greater responsibilities towards their clients and dedicated teams to take care of them.
The support from an Insurance Broker is not restricted to just helping you buy the right policy. They help you throughout the policy life cycle including their dedicated support in settlement of the claim.
