Insurance brokers, reinsurance brokers, insurance consultants, corporate agents, third party administrators, surveyors and loss assessors, all come under intermediary services.

Last there was buzzing with speculations that the government planned on modifying foreign direct investment limits in aviation and insurance intermediaries.

The insurance industry is expected to reach USD 280 billion by 2020.
