What is an Insurance Wholesaler?

Updated: Jun 28, 2023

These intermediaries can deal with placing commercial and personal risks.


An insurance wholesaler, also known as an insurance broker or surplus lines broker, is a specialized intermediary between insurance carriers and retail insurance agents or brokers. They play a crucial role in the insurance industry by facilitating the placement of coverage for risks that may be difficult to insure in the standard insurance market.


For example, if a retail broker is approached by a client looking to insure -e.g. A restaurant that sells alcohol - the retail broker can use the services of a wholesale insurance broker to obtain a quote and sell a product to their client, even if they don’t have direct access to an insurer that writes this type of business.
