Fremont, CA: An insurance broker is specialized in various types of insurance and risk management. They help individuals and companies purchase insurance for themselves, their families, their homes, or businesses. They may focus on a certain type of insurance or industry or offer advice on various types of insurance. They offer service to their customers with usually no cost to their clients.

Brokers are regulated by the state or states in which they work in the United States. Most brokers need to have an insurance license which includes taking courses and examinations. Every state has different criteria for insurance brokers which they need to meet to be licensed in that particular state. Also, some states need insurance brokers to take courses continuously to keep their licenses.
