Small to medium-sized businesses are the lifeblood of Australian communities, helping them flourish and grow. But as every business knows, things don’t always go to plan. That’s why they rely on quality insurance from professional insurance advisors. They need insurance based on advice, not hope – so they can keep their doors open, look after their staff and serve their customers in good times and bad.

At Community Broker Network (CBN), we help empower insurance professionals like you to achieve the best outcome for every one of your clients.

Control your destiny

The CBN network is not like other insurance networks. We refer to our members as Authorised Brokers, because this best describes what they do. They work with us in the delivery of professional advice to their customers: autonomous, connected, supported.

Grow your business

As a business, you need to grow and evolve to keep up with your clients’ needs. As your clients retire, move or sell their business, you’ll need to continue to find fresh prospects and new opportunities.

Focus on clients

The key to business success is giving your clients maximum value while minimising your costs.

Get To Know The Team

At CBN, our focus is on you and what we can do grow and leverage your business to achieve your business goals. Our Regional Business Partners are here to help and support you through every step of your business journey at CBN.
