In this brochure you can find important information about the guidelines we must follow. This brochure is designed primarily for community clients.
As an insurance broker, our business is in providing the services of an insurance broker. This field is regulated by e.g., the law for insurance offers (234/2018), orders given by the Financial Supervisory Authority on insurance brokerage, and the law for preventing the financing of money laundering and terrorism (444/2017).
As an insurance broker, we offer our clients insurance consultation, which can apply to one or more products offered by an insurance company. We make an analysis for the client, both of their insurable risks as well as an analysis of suitable insurance products.
The only compensation we receive is from our clients. We are independent from any insurance firms and are not tied to dealing insurance from specific or limited insurance companies. After assessing the client’s insurance needs, the insurance broker gives a personal recommendation from the insurance products available and declares which recommended insurance would best suit the client’s insurance needs.
Our insurance brokers have relevant degrees and training. They have the knowledge, experience and expertise required from us by law and other orders.
We constantly follow the insurance offerings on the market and the financial status of insurance companies. We maintain analysis related to this information. We also develop the insurance products that will best fit our clients, and resource them from the market.

Financial Supervision and subjectivity to authorisation
Insurance brokerage is an authorised activity overseen by the Financial Supervisory Authority (FINA-FSA), which is an official authority and gives guidelines and orders concerning the insurance market. Insurance brokerage may be practised in Finland only by insurance brokers found in the Financial Supervisory Authority’s insurance broker registry.
The Financial Supervisory Authority must also be able to provide on request proof of an insurance broker’s right to deal insurance and information about the types of insurance they are allowed to broker. The permit can be confirmed with the Financial Supervisory Authority.
The insurance broker has liability insurance approved by the Financial Supervisory Authority for fulfilling the legislation for insurance brokerage. The liability insurance covers any possible indemnities arising from the insurance brokerage.
The compensation paid to the insurance broker and the terms for any compensation will be agreed upon in the contract between the client and the insurance broker. The insurance broker may only receive compensation from their client.
The value of the compensation will vary according to the size of the assignment and the insurance solution selected. You will receive information about the costs before the consultation or during the consultation.

Additionally, a dispute between the insurance broker and its client or another party can be brought to the attention of the general court, unless both parties can agree on another proceeding.
