How does Brown & Brown make its money?

You pay us. Brown & Brown receives a percentage of your premium or a flat fee from the insurance carriers. This is the industry standard. However, we view the insurance carrier as our Accounts Receivables department. You pay our fees and the insurance company remits the check to us. Many of our peers simply do not view this relationship as we do, and some do not fully disclose how much they are being paid. Brown & Brown of Ohio believes in 100% full disclosure on brokerage commissions and service fees.
