Would anyone in this insurance brokering industry mind sharing some insights? Thanks!

Unregistered 22-03-2020 04:10 PM

Google Marsh and you will know they are amongst the largest companies around.
Try to get into the reinsurance team instead of the local retail team.
Good career.

Is this an IMAP? Any idea?

Unregistered 29-03-2020 03:20 PM

i think it is

Yes, this sounds like an IMAP (i knew someone who worked there). She's now a broker.
Might as well do the consulting/investment roles in Marsh. Will be more prestigious.

can we join this prog and do the consulting roles?

The IMAP is only for general insurance.
I dont know about Marsh, but I know for Aon, a similar company, the pay starts out from 3.3k for the first year, and I imagine at the end of 2 years it will be 4k+.
But there is only usually 1 headcount in Marsh. The general side is smaller. But it's also better as 1)they get to go on a trip to UK 2)the ACII is slightly more relevant to the general insurance industry.

Unregistered 01-04-2020 09:27 PM

Anyone knows what kind of rotations(what kind of business unit etc) the Marsh program has?

Unregistered 06-04-2020 08:14 PM

Are there yearly salary increments for graduate associate within the 2 years?

Banks are prestigious only if you are at the right one, and a very steep ladder to climb.
Brokers with good experience are in demand, give yourself a few years, the next career jump is quite substantial. Important to build your network and relationships during that time.

The pay standard across? $3500?

Registered 28-05-2020 11:25 AM

This industry is very manual so skip if you are looking for technology or efficiency.

This industry is generally shunned and misunderstood by locals so skip if you have problem getting along with foreigners or easily embarrassed if mistaken for an insurance agent.

This industry is not known to make people rich and this company is known to pay peanuts. Please skip if you are looking for money.

This industry has almost zero glamour and swagger. Nobody will be impressed by your job. Skip if you are looking to work in a glam environment.

Expect zero bonus and bare minimum increment. You will find yourself earning almost similar to people who join one two years after you.
