The Value of Industry-Specific Expertise

December 1, 2020

Commercial insurance is more than a commodity. In many cases, your commercial insurance program is the primary tool that will keep your business running in the case of disaster such as a fire, water damage, storm damage, vandalism, an accident, or employee injury. Your insurance policy will allow you to replace what was damaged or lost and provide financial resources to continue operations.

Having the wrong policy is almost the same as having no policy. And getting the right policy comes down to having a qualified and capable insurance broker that knows their business, understands your business, and puts that knowledge to work in a way that fully protects you.

In last year’s Zywave Broker Services Survey, ninety-one percent of respondents said it was important that their insurance broker have a thorough understanding of the company’s business. Ninety-four percent of respondents said it was important that their broker have coverage and policy expertise and eighty-eight percent said it was important that their broker help the organization become a more educated insurance buyer.
