BrokerTeam Group Partners with Sean Graham to launch Hamilton-based Digital Insurance Brokerage

Toronto, ON (Feb. 9, 2017) – BrokerTeam Group is proud to announce the launch of Idea Insurance, a Hamilton-based digital insurance brokerage that will be operated and owned by Sean Graham. Sean Graham is a well-established figure in the insurance community, having spent the past ten years as a Principal Broker at Kanetix.

“Idea Insurance is a natural evolution for me,” states Mr. Graham. “It’s the opportunity to build a best-in-class brokerage from the ground up, as I’ve always envisioned it, by merging the best aspects of a traditional brokerage with the speed, convenience and choice of an online platform.”

BrokerTeam has partnered in this venture with Mr. Graham “because of Sean’s tremendous talent, deep industry knowledge and appetite for innovation, all things we value greatly at BrokerTeam,” mentions Royle Leung, President of BrokerTeam Group. “He’s already accomplished great things at Kanetix and I know we will accomplish many more together.”

“People that are shopping are clearly not happy with their current insurance solution. Idea Insurance is going to address that, helping Ontarians become well-versed in insurance, providing them with the most options available, and leveraging technology to provide a new kind of experience to customers. We really want to help change the way people buy insurance,” adds Mr. Graham.

Idea Insurance will launch its full website in March 2017 and offer auto, home, motorcycle, business, life and travel insurance through both online and traditional channels.
