No stake in voting rights or capital of insurance companies. No insurance company or parent company of an insurer has any direct or indirect stake in the voting rights or capital of Oskar Schunck GmbH & Co. KG.

 

ACTIVITY

We broker insurance and provide, independently thereof, insurance consulting as well for business clients (with brokering).

 

REMUNERATION

Consulting, brokering and servicing is basically free for clients since the broker’s commission is basically assumed by the insurer and is a component of the premium. When brokering net products there is a separate fee agreement obliging the client to pay the fee. With net products, the brokerage fee is not included in the insurance premium. We do not receive any other payments or gratuities for brokering. As insurance consultants we invoice business clients on a fee basis according to an agreement.

 

COMPLAINT MANAGEMENT

If you as a client are not satisfied with our services and wish to complain you may do so in writing or by email addressed to our complaint office.
