C1 BROKER ® : Insurance Brokerage Reinvented

C1 BROKER ®: Our Strategy ​

C1 BROKER’s strategy is simple: we put our agents and franchisees at the center of our universe and build the business around them. We offer customers and insurance agents the best choice of insurance companies and at the same time a first-class, efficient back-up service, which is available in several languages.


Our call-centre is set up to provide full support to our insurance agents, a vital ingredient in our success story, and a very different proposition centres run by insurance companies, where there is little focus on the needs and expectations of either insurance agents or their customers.
 

Instead of modelling C1 BROKER on traditional insurance agencies, CEO Dr. Susana Wichels and her team have gone back to the drawing board. They have designed a business model that provides the best service, value and experience for their clients and insurance agents.


By hiring a team of industry experts and using the latest technology, C1 BROKER has become one of the most promising intermediaries in the insurance industry, offering more options and better service than any other agency or broker. 
 

Without question, the best sales force in insurance is the intermediary. These are the local agents or broker who can build one-to-one relationships: consumers need to know their insurance agent, while the agent needs to have time to listen to their customers. 


The value of being an intermediary is in its ability to offer a personalised, close, and professional business platform that no online price comparison site or impersonal call-centre can do. And, in the face of industry changes in today’s climate, only insurance agents and brokers who offer a solid, reliable network will survive and be able to meet the future needs of their customers.
 

We make it easy for you, giving you the time to concentrate exclusively on generating sales. Our relationship with the best insurance companies, combined with comprehensive back-end support, makes this possible. 
You can shift your focus and provide your customers with choices by preparing competitive quotes and concluding new insurance contracts.

WHO WE ARE

Wir haben unsere Versicherungskarriere vor fünfundzwanzig Jahren begonnen – mit einer kleinen Agentur im Süden Teneriffas. Die Kunden kamen zu uns, um sich bei ihrem örtlichen Agenten zu versichern

Darüber hinaus wollte der Kunde, dass wir uns um seinen Service kümmern. Er wollte nicht bei einem unpersönlichen Call Center anrufen. So übernahmen wir den gesamten Kunden- und Schadensservice und entwickelten uns zu einer der bedeutendsten Agenturen in Spanien, mit mehreren Millionen Euro Bestandsvolumen..

We offer unsurpassed sales and renewal commissions. Insurance companies pay low commissions to new entrants and offer little support for their sales activities. As a C1 BROKER insurance agent, you can benefit from high commissions from day one, helping you make the most of your sales force. And above all, we help to protect your customer portfolio.

We provide comprehensive support and bring the business right to your door. We enable you to run your own campaigns, using professionally- designed and produced materials. Our in-house marketing department will take care of this. We offer support in managing social media and digital marketing, developing a marketing plan and strategy.

START YOUR OWN BUSINESS - INSURANCE FRANCHISE IN SPAIN

HOW WE DO IT

C1 BROKER ® – Business Model

C1 BROKER ®  offers advice and assistance to help you keep up with the dynamically changing insurance market.

 

We focus on making the insurance process as pleasant as possible. Our business model brings together a powerful online presence and invaluable professional on-site advice.


The C1 BROKER insurance agent or franchise model is suitable for all dedicated sales specialists with or without an insurance background. Our network provides access to a support team of insurance professionals who take responsibility for the administrative work, while introducing the highest level of experience, training, contacts, know-how and back-office support to its franchisees and insurance agents.

Are you thinking about starting your own insurance agency in Spain?

Whether you are a newcomer or an experienced agency owner, there are many factors to consider in today’s market.
You first have to decide whether you want to work as a one-company representative (Agente exclusive) or as a freelance broker.


This decision may seem obvious, but it is important to know that it is impossible to be approved as an independent broker in Spain – especially if you are not a native of Spain and do not have a good command of the language. The only option is to become a one-company representative  – an exclusive agent of a single company.


However, as a tied agent, you only have access to the products on offer from that insurance company. If the price and scope of the product you sell are not what is wanted, you have no choice but to leave potential customers to the competition. In addition, commissions available to tied agents are limited.


On the other hand, independent brokers such as C1 BROKER are able to work with a number of insurance companies and can provide a solution to almost any problem. From a personal car policy to insurance for skyscrapers to state insurance contracts, independent brokers are able to arrange contracts with all companies. C1 BROKER insurance agents and franchisees receive an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution 

BELOW ARE SOME OF THE ADVANTAGES OF OUR PROGRAM:

•    State-of-the-art software system for agency management
•    Higher commission levels than with most insurance companies

WHO WE ARE

Today, small agencies need to compete with new players. They must reinvent themselves in order to survive. But why do this on your own when you can join a winning team?

C1 BROKER ® - Together we are stronger

We launched our insurance business 25 years ago as a small agency in the south of Tenerife. Clients came to us to as their preferred local agent and wanted us to take care of them.

 

What they did not want was to contact a call-centre, manned by indifferent staff. As a result, we took over the entire customer and claims service operation and we fast developed into one of the most important agencies in Spain, with a substantial portfolio valued at several million euros.
 

That was then, nearly three decades ago. Today, the insurance market is dramatically different. Insurance companies are trying to generate a large part of their revenues themselves; direct insurance is becoming increasingly important for insurance companies, displacing small- and medium-sized agencies. There are also new aggressive players eroding the market– banks and online comparison sites are attempting to entice customers by offering low prices. 
 

The way we interact with customers has also changed. Insurance agents must be available 24/7. They must invest in digital and automated processes – that is the only way they can keep their business reasonably profitable.


Today, small agencies need to compete with these new players. They must reinvent themselves in order to survive. But why do this on your own when you can join a winning team?

C1 BROKER® Insurance reinvented

Trend

Konzentration von Versicherungsagenturen

Dr Wichels says: “Insurance companies are run by people like us. But their job is to run the company as efficiently as possible. This raises the question: Does an insurance company want to have its product sold by as many insurance agents as possible to generate the highest possible turnover? The answer is no.


“If an insurance company’s goal is to sell as many policies as possible to generate the highest possible premium, then it must run its business as efficiently as possible. 
“So if a company has 20 area managers throughout Spain and 150,000 licensed agents have been appointed, each area manager would be responsible for managing about 7,5000 agents. That is not efficient. And the agencies cannot be managed properly.


“In addition, every person is different. Every independent agency or broker has its own peculiarities, its own way of doing business. And we all know that not every insurance agent is professional. 


“This is a real challenge for insurance companies. That is why the concentration of insurance agents and brokers is a trend in the insurance industry.”
