Commercial (Re)Insurance Broking & Risk Management: Career Experience, Advice, & Industry Pathways
Any fellow commercial insurance brokers on this site? I've seen the occasional discussion with commercial P&C and reinsurance underwriters, but interested to find out how many are on the brokerage side.
I'm a year-and-a-half into a training program with a global insurance brokerage, where I support both client advisory and large P&C placements for companies with $500M-$1B+ in revenue. So far, I'm really enjoying the learning experience, the industry, and the colleagues I work with.
To some of the more experienced brokers/client execs on this forum, how has your experience been to date? What are the important technical skills you focused on developing as your career advanced? What does it take to stand out and keep growing?
Also, in terms of future pathways, what opportunities are there for commercial brokers within the larger insurance industry or outside world where you could leverage your skillset?
