Finaccord’s series of country-specific reports about commercial non-life insurance brokers and the BrokerBASE™ datasets that accompany them investigate the importance of brokers in the distribution of non-life insurance for businesses in 20 countries in Europe. Brokers are the most important single distribution channel for this sector in many countries, and Finaccord’s research indicates that fees and commissions earned by brokers from commercial non-life insurance in Europe were worth almost EUR 10 billion in 2011. Moreover, brokers are increasing their share of this market in many countries, often at the expense of tied agents, and are often expected to continue growing their overall share in future, in spite of the challenging economic circumstances.
The reports first provide unique data for the size, segmentation and growth of the commercial non-life insurance market itself in each country. They then quantify the share of this market that is intermediated by brokers and rank the leading brokers according to their revenues from commercial non-life insurance, excluding income from other activities. These analyses are based on an investigation covering over 500 brokers across Europe, with a total ranging from ten to 60 in any given country, depending upon the number and importance of brokers in that country. This makes them by far the most detailed and comprehensive studies of this market ever published, building upon Finaccord's original reports on the subject published in 2009.

  4. 4. Commercial Non-Life Insurance Brokers in Europe What methodology has been used? Finaccord’s investigation into commercial non-life insurance brokers in Europe was carried out between March and May 2012. The core of this research was an analysis of leading brokers in each country that combined telephone interviews with senior executives with published information and company accounts. Reliable statistics concerning the market share of brokers do not exist in most countries, and in no cases whatsoever are revenues from commercial non-life insurance shown separately from personal lines, life insurance and pensions, and employee benefits. Therefore, these studies provide genuinely unique data to answer the following questions: • How large is the commercial non-life insurance market in each country and how does it segment? • What are the key regulatory issues in each country? • What proportion of business was handled by brokers in 2011 and how has this changed since 2007? • Who are the leading brokers in each market, by revenues and employee numbers?  The BrokerBASE™ datasets rank the top ten to 60 commercial non-life brokers per country, depending on the size of the broker industry in each case. • What are the main strengths and areas of specialisation of these leading brokers? • How concentrated or fragmented are commercial non-life insurance broking markets? • How can commercial non-life insurance broking markets be expected to develop up to 2015?
