An insurance broker provides brokerage services in the conclusion of insurance contract for one or more insurance companies.
They strive to make contact between policyholders and insurance companies in order for policyholders to negotiate with insurance companies on the conclusion of an insurance contract.
In addition to the aforementioned, insurance brokerage also includes activities related to the preparation for the conclusion of an insurance contract, and assistance with the exercise of the rights arising from the contract, especially with the solving of claims addressed to an insurance company.
