The company’s wholesale brokerage operations assist its brokers and other unaffiliated brokers and agents in the placement of specialized, insurance programs. The company’s primary sources of compensation for its retail brokerage services are commissions paid by insurance companies, which are usually based upon either a percentage of the premium paid by insureds, and brokerage and advisory fees paid directly by its clients. For wholesale brokerage services, it generally receives a share of the commission paid to the retail broker from the insurer. Commission rates are dependent on various factors, including the type of insurance, the particular insurance company underwriting the policy and whether the company acts as a retail or wholesale broker.
