With the growth of Authorised Representatives, insurance broking is evolving. Click below to view a video about this, featuring our Director, Amanda Smith.
Insurance Advisernet Australia (IAA), registered General Insurance Broker and member of the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA), currently leads the insurance market in the acquisition of Authorised Representatives (ARs). Optimum Insurance, as a member of NIBA, abides by the NIBA Code of Conduct and the General Insurance Brokers Code of Practice.
Managing Director of IAA, Adrian Kitchin, says ARs are not a threat to the average broker, but rather an evolution. “The current challenge for the industry is to learn how to cope with the advent of the AR. With increasing levels of qualification and professionalism, the future of the AR is sound,” said Kitchin.
Our Director, Amanda Smith, has said becoming an AR was a natural career progression for her. By partnering with IAA she obtains the resources and support one of the most exclusive licensees in the market.
IAA utilises a wide range of reputable authorised insurers, selected on the basis of the quality of their products and services. Insurance Advisernet's advisers are equipped with the latest technology to ensure that their customers receive the most appropriate and professional advice. Customer files can be accessed on the spot, so all enquires are handled promptly and efficiently.
