Insurance brokers always have the client’s best interests in mind and they do not represent any insurance companies. They assess the range of the insurance market completely impartially. Insurance brokers analyse, assess and, if necessary, arrange bidding for the insurances of their clients. If you have entered into a management and administration agreement with an insurance broker, they will take care of day-to-day insurance matters, provide reports on how things progress and ensure that your activities are always protected appropriately.
Your insurance broker is your trusted person to whom you can turn to for advice in all matters related to insurance and claims. They will provide assistance and help in all kinds of matters. Through your personal broker, you can also take advantage of our international network. This means that you can access the safety of personal services and the benefits and strengths of global operations at the same place. At Söderberg & Partners, we provide local services in 16 locations and value personal services.
As insurance brokers perform checks, monitoring and reports related to their clients’ activities on behalf of insurance companies, the companies grant the clients of brokers various broker discounts. Due to their purchasing volumes, insurance brokers are major clients for insurance companies, which is why they can often negotiate more advantageous terms and conditions for product packages. This is an advantage that should not be missed.
Let an insurance broker handle the insurance of your company and you can sleep peacefully. Insurance brokers are experienced in various sectors. Their specialty is to help you identify the risks of your operations and your sector. Our insurance brokers are part of a strong international network with bargaining power over more competitive prices and better insurance policy conditions. The broker is also able to identify situations where taking a moderate risk might be more sensible than taking out expensive insurance.
Insurance brokers are not only for large corporations. The clients of brokers include many SMEs. The services of a broker are particularly suitable for companies who own expensive equipment, machinery or production facilities or other special assets, provide more than 15 people with jobs, makes subcontracting agreements or is active on international markets. Different responsibilities related to operations and the related insurance are also specialties of an insurance broker.
The profession of an insurance broker is regulated at the EU level. In Finland, the activities of brokers are supervised by the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority. The profession of an insurance broker has been deemed to be so demanding that a degree is required for this position. Only a party entered in the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority’s register of insurance intermediaries can use the title of an insurance broker or insurance intermediary. Söderberg & Partners is also a member of the Finnish Insurance Brokers’ Association.
