In today’s rapidly evolving business environment, technology continues to impact the way business is done. How do you make sense of increasingly complex insurance issues? How does one minimize risk? Is it possible to increase program quality while reducing cost? This is where Kapnick Insurance Group excels. We simplify complexity. We innovate. We partner. We lead clients in new directions that minimize risk and reduce cost.

We represent top rated national and regional insurance carriers. As a top performer in the insurance industry, we have access to markets, products and programs giving us the flexibility to match each client with the best carrier – whether it’s providing business insurance, personal insurance, employee benefits, risk management or financial strategies.

Our success can be attributed largely to our people. Kapnick employs 130+ insurance professionals who have earned a national reputation for anticipating clients’ problems, creating innovative solutions and passionately giving back to the communities we serve.
