Why Canadians Continue to Choose IDC Insurance

One of the most important decisions Canadians make when it comes to their finances is choosing an advisor they can trust. Our “post-sale surveys” continually earn high approval ratings for our associate agents, service and process. We know that consumers and businesses prefer to seek advice from a professional who understands the Canadian way of life. Sorting through the many different options becomes confusing without a trained expert to assist. At IDC Insurance we can offer personalized financial services to Canadians by Canadians. We care and understand the importance of our clients’ insurance planning needs. IDC Insurance provides advice, brokerage, and insurance services for Canadians from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. IDC Insurance has a network of independent insurance agents with a combined experience of over 200 years. Our dedicated team of licensed professionals are committed to providing the best coverage at the best possible rate for all of our clients. We began serving Canadians in 1999 and our services are available in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. We offer insurance and related products through approximately 35 of the best Canadian insurance companies. We are a recognized national brokerage firm with operating licenses throughout Canada.

I have been entrusted with an incredible opportunity to help guide the IDC Insurance team of talented people into an expanding era of business. I’m both honored and excited with this opportunity as we continue to maintain and grow IDC Insurance in the online marketplace. I look forward to help shape the Canadian financial services marketplace by bringing better products, better value and better experience for consumers and businesses. We want to make it easier for everyone to find affordable, quality life and health insurance, conveniently everyday.

Binh Nguyen, Chief Executive Officer

I have been working with the IDC Insurance team since 2011, and continue to be impressed with the depth of knowledge the team represents, and their willingness to share. With any organization, whether an insurance agency or a restaurant, management sets the tone. The management at IDC Insurance has created a stimulating work environment, and has set the guidelines for us to be successful in serving our clients. Our corporate goal is to provide our clients with the best product value, and service in the industry, and I believe we are achieving it, as our many testimonials can attest.

Richard Parkinson, Associate Agent

I am very excited to be a part of this forward-thinking approach to our business. Our technology at IDC Insurance is a direct result of a positive working environment and a dedicated team of management and associates who understand the industry and its’ evolving nature for both our staff and, most importantly, our prospective clients. Our brokerage provides so many advantages to our clients. I feel fortunate to be a part of our team. With all of our associates holding at least 4 provincial and territorial licenses and a combined decades of knowledge and experience, we provide the best in knowledge, choices and service to our clients.

Deborah Linton, Associate Agent

I was a career agent with another company and therefore only allowed to sell from one company. Being a broker now, it allows me to offer the best products to my clients and having prospective clients sent to me through IDC Insurance. It allows me to grow my business and learn products much faster than a person-to-person broker. It is night and day from career agent to broker, as you do not realize how much you are limiting your clients. And the biggest challenge most agents have is finding people to talk to. My biggest challenge with IDC Insurance now, is having so many people to talk to.

Agents Are Coached and Mentored by the Company Founder

Mr. Russ Smart is an unusual combination of technical expertise and practical business experience. After completing his MBA at the University of Toronto, Russ went on to study for three years toward a PhD in Marketing. His career path has been anything but theoretical as he has excelled in a wide range of management positions. As an entrepreneur, Russ has successfully built and sold several companies as both a master franchiser and franchisee and a successful insurance brokerage.

Russ germinated the idea of selling life insurance non face-to-face from his home office in 2001 as an independent life insurance broker. He pioneered many of the processes that have been adopted by the industry as he grew his company, IDC Insurance, to be an industry leader with close to 10,000 clients under his management. The highlight of his insurance career was achieving the MDRT Top of the Table recognition.

When it was time to sell IDC Insurance, he looked at a number of options and selected Mr. Nguyen and his team who not only shared Russ’ vision but would continue to grow and assert IDC’s position as the premier “online insurance brokerage” in Canada. Russ is celebrating his 50th wedding anniversary in 2015 with his wife Dianne. He has two children and eight grandchildren. His family and faith are the focus of his life although he does spend time with his wife ballroom dancing, going to the gym, travelling and his hobbies of photography and video.

I originally started working at IDC Insurance for the convenience of working from home.  I quickly realized that this was a great opportunity to enjoy more time with family and friends as well as personal pursuits.  I also grew to enjoy many of the people that I have worked with over the years, and look forward to meeting many more in the future.

Darren Koch, Associate Agent

I can truly say that it has been a blessing for me to have joined IDC Insurance. When I first learned about the company, like most, I was skeptical and asked a lot of questions. Now many years later, I can truly say I am glad to have taken the steps to join a great company. If you want to excel and work hard, do the same that I did and join IDC Insurance.
