Bracht, Deckers & Mackelbert NV (BDM) was established in 1934, and today our company is one of the most renowned managing general agents in the Benelux region. An managing general agent is an insurance intermediary who, as the agent of one or more insurance companies, holds mandates that can be used to insure (‘underwrite') all risks presented to him via professional brokers. We do this on behalf of and on the account of the insurance companies we represent. As an underwriting agent we are located between the insurance company and another insurance intermediary (generally an insurance broker).
Professionalism and technical expertise are BDM’s strengths and are reflected in our diversified portfolio of insurance products and services in Marine and Fire, Accidents and Other Risks. Specialised teams of experienced and multilingual insurance professionals form the backbone of our successful and service-oriented business model. We aim to offer risk management solutions, including sterling claims management, tailored to suit an international clientele.
