Whats the difference between RIBO and OTL?
Both the RIBO (Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario) and OTL (Other Than Life) license allow you to sell home and auto insurance in Ontario, however the OTL qualifies you to be an Insurance Agent while the RIBO license qualifies you to be an Insurance Broker.
OK, so what is the difference between an Insurance Agent and an Insurance Broker?
An Insurance Broker is a person that has permission to seek insurance quotations for an insured (client) or prospective client. A broker is not an insurance company employee. As a representative for the insured, brokers will approach several insurance companies in an attempt to provide quotations and coverage to adequately insure the client’s exposures. – Insurance Brokers Association Ontario
An Insurance Agent is a person who has entered into an ‘agency contract’ with an insurance company for the purpose of selling insurance for that one company. An agent is not an employee of the insurance company, but rather an independent contractor. The agent, unlike a broker, has the authority to bind coverage (legally obligate the insurance company to provide coverage according to the terms and conditions as bound). – Insurance Brokers Association Ontario
