Frequently Asked Questions

How much does insurance cost for Insurance Agencies and Brokers?

The cost for an insurance agent's Errors & Omissions coverage is most often rated on the premium sold per year and the types of insurance products provided. Most insurance carriers will also review industry experience and loss history.

Why do I need insurance as an Insurance Broker?

Insurance is a massive financial service utility for the modern world. It is insurance agents who are most responsible for placing the right coverage for their customers. If an error is made in the process the liability exposure is much larger than for other professional services. Errors could arise when:

  • Advising clients on their insurance needs
  • Pairing clients with the appropriate insurer
  • Collecting premiums
  • Renewing client policies

During these regular duties, and with many others, your business can make mistakes. For example, you may forget to suggest an Employment Practices policy when selling D&O, which later turns out to be necessary. Even if you do not represent yourself as a full-service advisor, the client could make a claim against you for negligence in the placement of management insurance.

Do I need Cyber Liability as an Insurance Agency?

Business transactions over the internet are key to business function today, and it's nearly impossible to provide a professional service without utilizing the infrastructure. Unfortunately, there are countless bad actors also utilizing the internet and its easy access to the information. Cyber Liability insurance protects your digital footprint and is there to keep you in business if your customer's information is compromised.
