McLean Hallmark’s take on compensation
At McLean Hallmark Insurance Group, our goal is to provide you with the best insurance value that combines coverage, service, and price. We also provide personalized service that includes professional advice, ongoing policy maintenance and claims support. When an issue arises regarding your insurance coverage, we are your advocate using our experience and leverage with our insurance companies to best represent your interests.
Business and Personal Insurance
We are compensated for our sales and service work based on a commission basis. Commissions vary by policy type but generally are 5% to 12.5% for auto policies, 10% to 25% for property and liability policies and 10% to 20% for specialty lines including watercraft, valuable articles and recreational vehicles and are paid each policy term.
In order for us to maintain strong relationships with our contracted insurance companies we work with them to place business that best fits their target niches. Some insurance companies provide an incentive through profit sharing arrangements if we achieve certain growth, retention and portfolio profitability targets. These contingent bonuses are never guaranteed and do not influence where we place our clients’ business.
McLean Hallmark is an independent company that is 100% Canadian and family-owned. Unlike many of our competitors, no insurance company owns any portion of our company and we are not contractually obliged to place a specific amount of business with any of the insurance companies we represent.
Your insurance company should have provided you with a consumer code of rights and responsibilities. If you do not have a copy it can easily be obtained from their website. If you have any questions regarding this or any other aspect of your insurance please contact us.
