About Us

About Us

We are an independent insurance brokers group that is 100% member owned and operated.

In 1986, five independent Bay Area agents, all-struggling with limited market access for their clients, decided to come together and they established Atlantic Pacific Insurance Brokers. After 31 years and with very little revision to their initial model, their innovative alliance continues to provide member agents with the highest quality markets available to best meet the needs of their clients.

We take pride in helping our members to become the best independent insurance agencies possible.

We help our members to be the best independent insurance agencies they can possibly be.

Profit Sharing with Members

What sets Atlantic Pacific apart from most other agency group organizations is the fact that 100% of all commissions and Profit Sharing payments go directly to our member agents.

Administrative Expenses

Each member pays a nominal monthly fee to cover the basic operating expenses of the administrative office.

Democratic Business Model

At Atlantic Pacific Insurance Brokers, your voice counts! We follow a democratic business model, with each member agent getting one vote in the decision making process of the organization.

Benefits to Becoming a Member

There are many benefits to joining our successful insurance agency network.

Top 10 Insurance Brokers

Atlantic Pacific Insurance Brokers has been among the top 10 Insurance Brokers in the Silicon Valley Business Journal for the past 10 years. Over the years, we have evolved to become more of an association than a service provider.

No Production Quotas

Member agents operate their own separate agencies with no production quotas or market access limitations unless imposed by a specific carrier.

Our Success Speaks for Itself.​

Our screening process for new members may be a bit more time consuming than other organizations but we feel that our success speaks for itself.
