A life insurance broker is responsible for the overall financial performance of a branch office at an insurance company. To achieve the branch’s set targets, the life insurance broker must recruit, train, develop, and supervise life insurance agents to gain new clients and drive sales. They also need to maximize profits and minimize risk and liability regarding payment of future benefits by analyzing actuary data and strategically setting life insurance premiums for policyholders. Other duties include overseeing insurance claims investigations to make sure staff complies with regulations and reviewing existing company policies and making recommendations for improvement. Life insurance brokers typically work full-time at an insurance agency or firm.
