Frustrated by an industry
that only sees problems,
not solutions


technically, we’re a licensed MGA.
we’re just redefining what that means.

Boost Insurance Agency, Inc. is a property & casualty managing general agency and surplus lines broker licensed in all 51 jurisdictions across the United States. We’re appointed by A.M. Best ‘A’-Rated insurance carriers, backed by our own dedicated reinsurance capacity, and can support all commercial or personal lines of business in the P&C space.

We build custom insurance products for each of our distribution partners, facilitate regulatory approval for those products, provide automated policy administration through our technology systems, handle all ongoing claims administration services, and maintain regulatory compliance for the program. Our proprietary and entirely API-driven policy administration system is product agnostic and can programmatically rate, quote, bind, and issue insurance policies, as well as manage them throughout their life cycles.

Our infrastructure-as-a-service (“IaaS”) makes it simple for our distribution partners to monetize the insurance vertical by packaging all the back-end components needed to build, launch, and manage a digital insurance program. Our customers are leading technology companies, game changing startups, or any insurance broker or agency that wants a modern, tech-enabled insurance partner to support their program.

At Boost, we believe that the modern faces of insurance distribution are digitally-enabled brands offering the products and services that work in the modern world. Plugging into Boost allows them to sell insurance that does the same – which is why we’re going to be the insurance platform that powers them all.
