What are Business Insurance Agents and Brokers?

What is the difference between a broker and an agent? Which should you be using for your business? Both insurance agents and brokers help their customers obtain insurance coverage for their business. Both can offer broad ranges of insurance options, including:

How Are They Different?

An insurance agent represents an insurance company as an intermediary. They may be captive—which means they represent just one insurance company. Or they may be independent and represent a multiple insurance companies.

Brokers work independently and are accountable to their customer. They have a duty to analyze and determine the scope of coverage required by your business. They make sure you're getting the best coverage from the right insurer.

However, because they don't work directly with an insurance company they must hand you over to an insurance agent to complete a transaction.
