"One of the most overused sales tactics is for an insurance broker to proclaim that 'We are the biggest and therefore we get the best rates' or 'We have access to the most underwriters'," said Benjamin Thrush, Vice President of Business Development at HUB International Northeast. "The fact is that the corporate size of an insurance broker matters, but only when it comes to the value added services they are able to obtain from a carrier and/or the people they have access to within a carrier on all levels. At HUB, I can confidently say that my relationships with management level underwriters translate into reduced cost policies with coverage enhancements that would not normally be offered to a competing broker who does not specialize in the same industry."
