Why use a CBN Authorised Broker?

 

A Community Broker Network Authorised Broker acts in your best interest to ensure you get the best insurance outcomes. CBN Authorised Brokers ensure they deliver a quality result for you because:

They understand you

CBN Authorised Brokers don’t start with products; they start with understanding you and your business needs. They take the time and have a documented methodology to gain a full understanding of your goals. They use tools to identify your risk appetite and gain a full understanding of your situation. It’s only after they have understood your needs will they consider the insurance options that will best suit you. But it doesn’t stop there. They will provide ongoing support that you can access every day, year after year, continuing to make recommendations as your situation changes.

They work for you

Independence is the bedrock of the CBN Broker community and is one of the main benefits that allows them to stand apart from the Insurers. Having a view of the total market and access to all products from leading Insurers enables our Brokers to find the very best products available to meet your needs. You can be confident a CBN Authorised Broker will act impartially, with your best interest sitting at the heart of any recommendations that they make because they work for you, not the Insurer. And if you have a claim, that’s when you will need your Broker. They will be there every step of the way to negotiate with Insurers on your behalf and ensure you get the best claims outcome.

They have expertise

CBN Authorised Brokers are established in their communities and areas of business, providing face-to-face advice and developing the right solutions for their customers every day. This experience and expertise which helps them identify the right product for you, from the thousands of products available, is invaluable. In addition, there are strict educational standards in place and ongoing Continuous Personal Development (CPD) standards that must be achieved each year, in order to retain their qualifications.

So you can try to do it alone and navigate the many options and clauses or you can trust your CBN Authorised Broker to deliver the best insurance outcome for you.
