Managing Distribution Risk

A one day workshop to help Insurers drive better outcomes from their distributors.

So you want to drive more business, but how much can you genuinely help distributors manage their businesses more effectively?

Managing risk, persistency and driving better outcomes

You’ll probably have distributors of varying shapes and sizes. One of the biggest issues within protection distribution, however, is the ability to mitigate risk with potentially problematic firms. The added risk of paying commission on indemnity with an opaque view of the firms receiving such commissions can result in big problems. My workshops will educate your teams on best practice for distributors, as well as helping you to identify problems earlier.
