As an insurance broker, we offer advice. The remuneration - called brokerage fee - for our consulting, brokerage and support activities is generally borne by the insurance company. The brokerage fee is part of the insurance premium. Deviations from this must be expressly agreed between us and the client. Particularly in the case of the brokerage of so-called net products, a separate remuneration agreement is usually made which obliges the client to pay the remuneration. Net products are products for which the brokerage fee is not included in the insurance premium. Customers who are not consumers can also be advised on a fee basis. We also offer pension advisory services, for which we receive a separate fee.

Our company has no direct or indirect interest of more than 10% in the voting rights or capital of any insurance company. An insurance company or parent company of an insurance company has no direct or indirect interest of more than 10% in the voting rights or capital of the insurance broker / our company.
