About Schouten Zekerheid

Effective insurance

You want your insurance to be properly arranged at an acceptable and predictable cost. And you want to have one point of contact for all your insurance solutions. That is exactly what Schouten Zekerheid offers. As an insurance broker, we are the link between you and the insurers and we act in your best interest. This is what we have been doing since 1953; our family firm has existed for more than 65 years. Thanks to autonomous growth and various mergers, we have grown to become one of the largest, independent insurance brokers in the Netherlands.
For your company
For your personnel

Our people

Our employees are dedicated. Experts in their field. And always prepared to give our business relations thorough advice. This is what makes our people the most valuable asset of our organisation. We are proud of these people who - for so many years - have been part of Schouten Zekerheid.

Internally, we keep it as simple as possible. No complicated hierarchical structure, but short lines of communication and colleagues who can rely on each other and form a close-knit team. This works well for us, and also for our business relations. This is how we can ensure that we will be able to respond quickly and that you can rely on the expertise of each of our colleagues.

Our core values

Our core values are the focal point of our organisation and services. Every employee works according to these core values and every business relation can expect to be treated according to these. That is the guarantee we offer you.
Personal service

Strongly rooted in society

Corporate Social Responsibility

We take our responsibility seriously, also when it comes to social issues. That is why we have a CSR policy that focuses on our social, ecological and economic role.

We express this via various initiatives. We work paper-free as much as possible and we stimulate our business relations to use digital invoices and policies. Those documents that are still sent by mail are sent CO2-neutral. We also work together with Maasstad Hospital in making the facility more sustainable by way of solar energy generated by the Schouten Tower.

We also implement our knowledge and experience to make a contribution to solving social and economic problems, and this includes sponsoring athletes at the highest level. Among others, we are the proud sponsors of Rotterdam Sports Icons, Hockey Club Rotterdam and Rotterdam Topsport.

Independent and customer-oriented

We are a fully independent and objective broker. Because there are so many insurance companies in the Netherlands, it is not possible to request quotations from every single organisation. That is why we base the advice we give to our business relations on an analysis of a number of available and comparable financial services. We regularly select insurers that we believe offer a good price/performance ratio. In the selection process, we primarily focus on the quality of the policy conditions and the premium, and also the claims handling and efficiency. In this selection process, we also involve our affiliate Schouten Zekerheid Assuradeuren B.V.

Schouten Tower

360-degree view

Since 1997, we have been located in the Schouten Tower at the foot of the Van Brienenoord bridge. Every day, approximately 250,000 cars drive by this tower which is situated along the A16 highway in the Rivium Business park. Our Schouten Tower can also be admired in MiniWorld Rotterdam, between the Euromast and Erasmus bridge landmarks.
