Statement of Brokerage Services and Compensation
Thank you for your business. As your Independent Insurance Broker, our role is to provide you with the best insurance products that combine coverage, service and price. We provide you with personalized service, expert insurance advice, ongoing policy maintenance and act as an advocate when any issues arise regarding your insurance coverage.
Brokerage compensation is part of your insurance premium. For your reference, outlined below is a list of the insurance providers we represent and the range of compensation each provides as a percentage of the premium that appears on your invoice. In order for us to maintain strong relationships with quality insurers we work with insurers to provide the type of business they desire.
The insurers noted below with an asterisk recognize our efforts through a Contingent Commission contract. Payment of this Contingent Commission is dependent on a combination of growth, profitability (loss ratio), volume, retention and increased services that we provide on behalf of the insurer. It is based on our entire portfolio of business with that insurer and not on individual policies. Contingent Commission is not guaranteed. Stevenson & Hunt may from time to time enter in to non standard arrangements which could have compensation terms that fall outside these ranges. We may carry out additional services such as data entry, processing claims payments and conducting site surveys. This additional work is compensated by payment of an agreed fee or commission.
From time to time, insurance companies will offer incentives to individual brokers, including contest entries, trips and other forms of hospitality. Such sales incentives are typically based on performance criteria established by the insurer. Our brokers are committed to providing objective advice to their customers and notwithstanding the receipt of any such incentives are primarily concerned with servicing our clients best interests.
For detailed information on Contingent Commission, please refer to the individual insurer's website. Should there be an increase in the compensation provided by your insurance provider, we will notify you.
