Code of Ethics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After much effort and dialog amongst our management and the management of the carriers we represent, Carrier Consulting has developed a Code of Ethics, which supports its mission to foster the growth and success of our business. This will also be used as a building block towards the development of our agent certification program.

Carrier Consulting Code of Ethics

The Carrier Consulting Code of Ethics details the core guidelines of Agent professionalism. This would encompass crucial issues such as: conflicts of interest, good faith representation and public perception. The core ethics listed below are essential to Agent professionalism for all of Carrier Consulting representatives.  Integrity, honesty, and transparency are fundamental principles embodied by this Code, which sets forth obligations of ethical conduct for the Agent profession.  Carrier Consulting has adopted this Code to provide high ethical standards to safeguard clients and the carriers we represent. Carrier Consultings representatives shall: comply with this Code; avoid association with any entity whose practices violate this Code and strive to uphold, maintain, and improve the integrity, reputation, and practice of the Agent profession.

In addition to the code of ethics that representatives of Carrier Consulting are bound by, Carrier Consulting and all representatives are bound by ethics and best sales practices of each governing business partner’s contractual obligations that we represent.  If any Carrier Consulting  representative violates any of our business partners ethics and/or sales practices, Carrier Consulting is in jeopardy of losing the ability to sell, receive commission, receive support from the particular business partner in the future.
