WHY WORK WITH AN ASSUREX GLOBAL PARTNER?
1. PRIVATE OWNERSHIP
Assurex Global is the world’s largest privately held commercial insurance, risk management, and employee benefits brokerage group.
At Assurex Global, we’re committed to serving our clients, not the whims of Wall Street. Our independence – on the corporate and Partner levels – sets us apart from our publicly traded national competitors.
Assurex Global marshals the expertise of independent, locally owned and managed insurance brokers on six continents to generate annual premiums of $28 billion. From California to the Congo to cyberspace, more than 19,000 Assurex Global professionals deliver seamless global insurance and risk management services wherever clients have assets at risk.
We’re Assurex Global; Owned by the largest independent insurance brokers; supported by local professionals in every corner of the globe; trusted by business owners and risk managers worldwide.
2. ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT
A typical Assurex Global Partner is owned and managed by insurance professionals who live, work and were raised in the local community. At Assurex Global, we actively encourage the perpetuation of ownership, ensuring Partner ownership passes from one generation of employees and managers to the next. Our Partners encourage employee-entrepreneurs to lay down roots in the community. When it comes to long-term stable client relationships, the competition just can’t touch Assurex Global Partners.
3. SUCCESS FORMULA
Assurex Global Partners embody the entrepreneurial spirit. Through employee incentive programs, perpetuation plans and good old-fashioned motivation, our Partners grow from within, rather than through acquisition. The acquisition of brokers may speed growth, but it does so at the expense of the entrepreneurial spirit. Unlike competitors who grow through acquisition, Assurex Global is committed to gathering the talent and experience of independent firms – without diluting their individual strengths.
4. WORKING RELATIONSHIPS THAT REALLY WORK
Assurex Global Partners are not just names in a database. They are colleagues and friends who formally gather at Assurex Global conferences and meetings. On a less formal basis, Partners are free to tap into one another’s experience and expertise – and take liberal advantage of the opportunity to do so. If one Partner firm lets down another one, it is likely that the next time the owners meet, the subject will be raised. For Assurex Global Partners, common ownership definitely means closer ties.
5. THE FLEXIBILITY TO CHOOSE ONLY THE BEST
Assurex Global handpicks only the best independent brokers per market to become a Partner. From a rigorous due diligence process during the selection phase to demanding performance reviews every three years, we make every effort to ensure only the best brokers become and remain Assurex Global Partners. The flexibility to choose the best and remove the weak is a luxury reserved for independent companies like Assurex Global.
6. GATEKEEPER APPROACH
A key benefit of Assurex Global is the ability to tap the experience and expertise of other local Partners on six continents. To ensure swift and smooth communication between Partners and maximize client service, Assurex Global requires each Partner to assign a gatekeeper to oversee the business of other Partners’ clients.
Typically a senior manager or owner, the gatekeeper treats a Partner’s client like part of the family – without regard to the client’s size or impact on the broker’s bottom line. The result, Assurex Global clients are served by the “A” team, regardless of where their business takes them.
7. OUR MARKET CLOUT MEANS BETTER DEALS FOR YOU
Assurex Global is the world’s largest privately held commercial insurance, risk management and employee benefits brokerage group. Only the three largest publicly owned brokers generate a larger premium volume than Assurex Global.
