If your company is not listed, please contact us if you need to know our compensation.

In order for us to maintain strong relationships with quality insurers, we work with each to provide the type of business they desire. The insurers with an asterisk (*) noted above recognize our efforts through a Contingent Commission contract. Payment of this Contingent Commission depends on a combination of profitability (loss ratio), and/or growth (usually over a number of years) and/or increased services that we provide on behalf of the Insurer.

In some instances, the occurrence of few large losses on our book of business can disqualify us from receiving a contingent profit payment for one or more years.

For detailed information on Contingent Commission, please go to the individual company's website.

As a Broker we must declare to our customers if we have any other financial links that could be considered a conflict of interest. We can confirm:
  • We do not have any direct or indirect ownership interest by an insurer or financial conglomerate
  • We have no loans, credit facility with any Insurance Company.

Our disclosure commitments are made in the best interest of consumers. We encourage you to also consult the commitments made by the insurance industry and individual companies by consulting their websites or other available information. Your Insurer will be providing you with a Consumer Code of Rights and Responsibilities which will be forwarded to you with your new business policy. If you have any questions regarding this or any other aspect of your insurance please contact us.

If you have any additional questions or require any information regarding any of the compensation received by Holman Insurance Brokers Ltd. for any of its insurance brokerage services, please do not hesitate to contact us or visit our website at
