One of the VNAB memberships is specifically designed for brokers active in the Dutch corporate insurance market. Brokers applying for membership have to meet certain admission requirements and they are obliged to comply with applicable rules of conduct. You’ll find more information about the admission requirements and rules of conduct at the bottom of this page.
As VNAB broker member you’ll have licence-based access to the Placement, Claims and Clearing modules of e-ABS. The system facilitates digital, fast and efficient data exchange with insurers, other brokers and loss adjusters.
The VNAB Sanctionpl@tform identifies (prospective) business relations and checks them against the sanction lists. The standardised and computerised operation of the online application facilitates efficient and effective Sanctions Act-compliant reviews. All these reviews are stored on the platform and accessible by co-insurance market parties.
As broker member you’ll be able to take part in all of the association’s activities. Periodically, the VNAB organises knowledge and meeting sessions around relevant, industry-specific themes. Broker members are also welcome to attend VNAB events, like the annual market dinner and the New Year’s reception. Meeting & connecting is a (sub)theme of these sessions. Broker members also receive our magazine VNAB Visie , featuring industry-specific and sector-related subjects, with contributions from various parties active in the corporate insurance market.
VNAB knowledge and meeting centre
As of March 2016, the former DNB branch office at Boompjes in Rotterdam houses the VNAB knowledge and meeting centre. The centre of the corporate insurance market, where professionals meet each other, work together and share their knowledge in an ambience that reflects the spirit of the new times. All facilities provided by the centre are available to VNAB members and partners, such as various conference rooms, free workstations for flex workers, a flexible event floor complete with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, parking space, top quality coffee, and a wide range of lunch and catering services. As member of the VNAB you can reserve rooms at reduced rates.
The number of votes - and thus the fee - is subject to the number of e-ABS licences purchased. The minimum purchase of licences for broker members is two. The first membership year is based on two licences/one vote, after that the number of licences will determine the number of votes. For more information about the fees and rates, please contact the VNAB.
