What makes us an underwriting agent

What makes us as underwriters? What specifically distinguishes us as your insurance company in Bremen? As an independent partner of many credit-checked insurance companies around the globe, we are established underwriting agents in Germany with numerous powers of attorney.

Because it is you, our customers, who benefit from our solid cooperation with first-class partners in the insurance business. The well-known insurers also benefit when they cooperate with us as a prudent underwriting agent: In an increasingly complex international market, we keep the insurance companies' backs free and their fixed costs low.

The difference between underwriting agent and broker

In the insurance industry, both experts play an important role in providing tailored insurance cover. However, as is often the case, the devil is in the details and there are subtle but significant differences that are worth knowing. The job of a broker is to arrange insurance for you. He will identify insurance companies that match your requirements in terms of rates and benefits. He acts in an advisory capacity and is your contact person for contract conclusion or changes.

Underwritung agents in Germany take over the tasks of insurance companies. We act with their power of attorney, which they grant us within the framework of a trusting cooperation. The services we provide for the insurance companies are carried out conscientiously to the satisfaction and welfare of our two valuable partners - for you and the respective insurer from whom you receive contractual protection in the event of a claim.
