We’re all aware of what a challenging year it’s been for SMEs. Many businesses are seeking expert advice and help to support them through these tough times.
Recent research by Vero, of 1200 NZ business owners and insurance decision-makers shows that, above all else, they value expert knowledge and advice, guidance on insurances issues and personalised solutions. Of those who use experts, 94% say their brokers find policies that are the best value.
And while 43% of SMEs surveyed buy their insurance direct, a third of them are open to the expertise provided by brokers.
Many say however that the one thing standing in their way is the fact they ‘don’t know how to find the right broker for me’, and most would rely on a recommendation from a colleague, friend, family member or business adviser to find the right fit.
Importantly the research observes that expert and professional guidance is ‘just as relevant during difficult times, whether they be economic downturns, natural disasters or even pandemics.’
