ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Konsileo is a commercial insurance broker using technology to empower individuals and replace hierarchical management with professional collaboration.

Our technology disrupts the traditional broking model in two ways.

Firstly, it addresses the operational challenges of regulatory compliance, data capture and duplication with an intuitive platform that gives brokers back more time to spend winning and retaining clients.

Secondly, our technology underpins the creation of a community of modern brokers without hierarchy. Brokers who support each other, share expertise, and are rewarded for working together.

Etymology: konsileo –

Kɒnsɪliːəʊ/

Verb

To advise in a long-term relationship, particularly where there is a deep personal commitment from the advisor to the client

“Dean konsileo’d James on his risk management strategy as his company grew from 30 to 300 people over 10 years”

Adjective

The benchmark for great quality business advice

“Dean’s advice to James achieved konsileo levels of clarity and empathy”

Popularised by the Godfather, the consigliere is a close, trusted friend and confidant, the mob’s version of an elder statesman… dispenses disinterested advice.

CONSIGLIERE. n.d. in WIKIPEDIA

OUR VISION

Konsileo is the insurance broker of the future built around efficiency, professionalism, collaboration and client service; leading to happier brokers and happier clients.

By combining the importance of face-to-face advice with the latest in data and analytics, along with best in class technology to not only insure client’s businesses but to anticipate and prevent future risks in the long-term, we can support the development and growth of our brokers whilst also delivering the best service for our clients.
