Top Industries Served
Embroker serves a wide range of industries but has positioned itself to be most helpful with startups and law firms. Its package products allow business owners to complete one application for multiple policies. Of startups, Embroker is particularly helpful for tech companies, using its own startup experience to guide the needs of new tech companies.
Embroker does not advertise rates. We completed the online questionnaire to receive a quote on general liability insurance. The system did not automatically generate a quote. Instead, it collects the data to email you later.
Rates will vary depending on your business specifics. Things like revenue, location, industry, and prior claims history will affect your rates.
Embroker relies on a comprehensive online interview to collect all necessary underwriting information. The process takes about ten minutes to complete. You are given a note at the end of the process that says they will send a proposal shortly. This is done via email and may take up to 24 hours to come through - although a confirmation email is sent immediately.
AM Best Ratings
Embroker is backed by Munich Re which means that it doesn’t have an AM Best rating on its own. Munich Re has an A+ rating with AM Best. This suggests that the company is in good financial standing and can handle a large number of claims that may come through at any time.
The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) maintains a complaint index on licensed companies. Because Embroker is a broker, it doesn’t have an NAIC listing. Instead, its partner, Munich Re, does. Munich Re had no commercial complaints from 2018 to 2020. This suggests that consumers are happy with the insurance and feel the company does what it promises.
We looked to third-party review sites to better understand what real customers were saying about Embroker. Embroker doesn’t have a listing with Trustpilot or other major review sites, making it difficult to glean any insights about the company. The company is listed but not accredited by the Better Business Bureau. There are no reviews or complaints made on the BBB website.
Embroker is the leader when it comes to digital insurance products. They work hard to package products that meet the needs of businesses so that business owners don’t need to get confused about which insurance products they do and don’t need. Though Embroker’s online questionnaire is a bit lengthy, it does an excellent job gathering the necessary information to underwrite a policy directly online.
