Insurance-agents are parties that market the products and services of insurance firms.
Do they really matters?
Yes, they do!
Insurance companies depend on them to boost sales effort. Examples are:
AON Minet Insurance Brokers.
In my view the answer is no. why? Since they are well positioned in the insurance value chain. Insurance agents assist insurance companies a great deal. They bring in more business through their marketing efforts. So, it’s not likely that they could be replaced.
On the contrary, they could lose business……..
They may be removed by the principal (insurance co)
In cases of:
-Malpractices- trading with enemies, cheating clients other vices.
-Change of company rules
-A better marketing strategy coming up when dealing with insurance agents. Ensure they are genuine, call parent company to establish that an insurance agents are credible . Ask as money questions as possible e.g.
All insurance-agents are the right people to clarify your insurance concerns.
They know the insurance industry very well, so get out, talk to your nearest insurance agent.....and,
Ask how insurance can work for you.
Insurance brokers and independent insurance agents* play a vital role in
the insurance purchasing process. AIG Property and Casualty values the

insurance buyers, and generally compensate them in recognition of their
participation in the purchasing process. Please contact your insurance
broker or independent insurance agent to obtain information about the
