Scope of the broker mandateWorking together within the scope of a broker mandate is the most common form of collaboration worldwide. This is likely due to the fact that the entire consulting and support process is usually integrated. With this form of cooperation, the selected insurance broker is compensated through brokerage fees (see Risk carriers and brokerage fees) from the insurance companies that are considered. A broker mandate is valid until revoked by one of the contractual partners.
A brokerage mandate (BORL) with ADVANTIS usually comprises the following services which do not result in separate costs:
We assess your risks and develop a risk profile for your company taking account of your risk capacity. The insurance audit then analyses your insurance policies and reveals potential savings. You receive benchmark information through comparisons with similar companies.

Our negotiating skills and market expertise guarantee you optimal premiums for tailor-made insurance solutions. We know which insurance carriers are currently looking for which risks. We are familiar with the market and guarantee the best price at the time of the tender.

When awarding a broker mandate, we recommend that you consider the following:
- Check the competence, reputation and references of the consulting firm
- Are the people presenting the services also the ones who will subsequently work with you?
- How are the consultants trained?
- Have deputies been appointed?
