Brett’s Main focus is on setting up insurances for business and individuals who truly value the relationship that an Adviser can bring to the insurance equation.

  • Brett McDonald

    Brett Operates his office from his own home Based in Batemans Bay and the South Coast of  NSW which allows him access to systems at odd hours, let alone during business hours. As long as he has his mobile and laptop with him, he is always on call for his clients. His dedication is such, unfortunately for his wife, which often means the laptop comes with him on Holidays… His services are fully backed up by the expert back office team at IAA which not only includes Industry compliance and training support, claims management and technical support, but also full accounting and premium collection and payment support. This allows Brett to concentrate on what he does best for his clients, servicing their needs for insurance placement and advice. 
    By operating this way Brett is able to deliver to customers a high quality service backed with a competitive remuneration structure. Carrying less cost overheads and utilising advanced service technologies enables me to pass all efficiency costs to customers maintaining a compelling value proposition responding to your business risk issues
    Due to the internet his client base is not limited to the South Coast and finds many Sydney based clients really appreciate the country attitude that comes with dealing with their adviser from the country rather than the pressure of City based firms.

    Testimonials

    Whilst doing some research into insurance for an owner builder project, I was put in touch with Brett MacDonald. I had some interesting, but not very helpful conversations with various people working in the insurance industry. All the information was confusing and contradictory until I spoke to Brett. I found him to be highly professional and able to explain my requirements. I asked him how to get in contact with him again if I had another question, not thinking that I would need to, ' just in case.' As it turned out, I did need to call him back, he offered to go over a document my insurer had sent me to high light the areas that were relevant to my needs. Brett responded over the weekend with a detailed and informative explanation, which was very helpful. I am completely happy with the brilliant, professional service that I received from Brett. It is truly refreshing to have been so lucky to be put in touch with someone who clearly went above and beyond what was necessary to put me on the right track.
    Mahalia Willcocks
    We are very grateful for all the work Brett did to make out insurance claim for the water dame so very smooth. We got a better outcome than we could have ever expected and from our end, with very little effort. We have now seen the end result and its fantastic thanks to Brett’s support in getting everything done so quickly
