Insurance Business has announced its Top 10 Insurance Brokerages rankings for 2012, with those making the list from a strong field of entries. Who is Australia’s top insurance brokerage? The inaugural Insurance Business Top 10 Brokerages ranking has, for the first time ever, offered an independent ranking of the very finest firms in the brokerage space. It is a landmark moment for insurance broking in Australia and sets the marker of achievement for every brokerage to aspire towards. METHODOLOGY The Insurance Business ranking system is an entirely objective means of ranking the best performing insurance brokerages in the country. Due to the advanced and detailed information needed, each brokerage had to supply their own details to Insurance Business to be eligible. When we talk of performance though, this is not just about the biggest firm with the most resources. We aimed to reward the smaller firms punching above their weight. In total, there were eight measurements, covering: • total revenue • policies written • revenue per broker • policies per broker • new clients per broker • new revenue per broker • company growth • client retention Every brokerage who entered was then ranked in each of these measurements and the sum of all of their rankings were added together. The brokerages were then placed in order of who had the lowest overall score (think of it as a golf score, where having higher rankings in each section means you have a lower total score). By inviting only locally-headquartered brokerages to enter (excluding the giant global brokerages) and ensuring that the majority of our measurements rewarded business per broker rather than just critical mass, the very best brokerages were rewarded rather than just those producing a critical mass of business (one of the top five has less than 10 brokers working for them).
