This year the conference was in Bordeaux, France. As is expected it was a very well run event. What was unexpected how ever was the changes taking place and the growth of the organsisation - this is a true stealth organisation and one we are proud to be part of.
Why stealth? It now must be getting ready to challenge the big players such as AON, Marsh, Willis and AJG. AND without them knowing we are coming for them.
Brokerslink statistics are very impressive - $25 billion in premium under management, represented in 113 countries and 20,000 employees.
AON and Marsh etc will have more employees but operate in the same or similar countries, in many instances BrokersLink is running a close 2nd or 3rd in the country. Even in the USA, through Alliant, Broerslink is 8th largets broker.
But its not all about size - the main thing is commitment to clients. Our staff a more stable and there for their clients 24/7 in country, on the floor when it counts. Each country is represented by a wel run family/long standing business with connetions to local markets and global expertise. This is really important for busiensses and people alike.
Brokerslink exists to provide an alternative. They execute global business strategies, from relatively simple local or multi-country placements to capital markets transactions and captive solutions, through a centralised, shared service. Our partners and affiliates benefit from the experience of the Brokerslink business development and risk management teams, and privileged access to specialist insurance and placement expertise.
We at MicroInsurance benefit because it means we are able to leverage not only licensing across the globe and fully in the USA but also have access to great partners such as Allianz, Chubb, AXA, SUNU to name but a few. This enables us to build global programs for our global clients.
MicroInsurance has full access to the world of insurance though Brokerslink and this underlines the power of the broker network.
At Microinsurance we are focused on changing the way business insurance is developed and processed. We are insurance with an API. We are in the forefront of that change; developing policies by the season, job, by the hour, by the day and by the Km, thus fitting our model to that of the platforms and the way small and micro businesses see risk. We are unbundling business policies so that the cover offered fits with peoples and business needs or the actual job or process being undertaken. Making Business Insurance transactional.
