There are organisations that can help and advise you when you are going through the process of looking for an insurance adviser.
Your Local Enterprise Agency should be able to advise you when selecting a broker or an independent financial adviser.
The British Insurance Brokers' Association (BIBA) could also help you find a broker.
If you choose to deal directly with an insurer, it's worthwhile checking that they are a member of the Association of British Insurers (ABI). Check that an insurer is a member of the ABI.
Other ways to get help when choosing an insurance adviser include personal recommendations and newspaper, directory or online searches.
