Analyze. Advise. Recommend. Offer people peace of mind.
When you’re a P&C insurance agent, what do you do? First of all, you need to make sure you fully understand your client to better meet their needs, as is the case with brokers. You must therefore listen to, assess, and analyze the information shared by the client. Then, you look for the perfect protection among the options offered by your employer, unlike a broker, who will call on a variety of insurers. Finally, you offer the client the protection suited to their needs and reality. You deal with many cases and many challenges, since this is a profession marked by change and diversity.
A good agent is someone who enjoys analysis and quickly understands the stakes of different situations. They are competent and know how to use their sales and communication skills to offer informed and relevant advice.
Your career. Your lifestyle. When you’re a P&C insurance agent, you have the stability and benefits of being employed by an insurance company. Depending on the employer, it’s possible to work at a branch, remotely, in a call centre, or sometimes even on the road.
