About Pathpoint

Our Story at Pathpoint

Our mission

At Pathpoint, we have a lofty goal: to make insurance delightful. Everyone needs insurance, but so few people find joy in it. 

We are working to change that. 

Our team aims to deliver the first open, digital E&S brokerage, providing transparent, friction-free, access and distribution to retail agents and E&S insurance carriers. Most importantly, our we aim to make sure that businesses get the best coverage for their business.

Our values

The values that guide us as a company and also inform the development of our solution through technology.


Honesty and openness are important to us, in insurance, but also in how we communicate with others.


As a company, we aim to put thought into what we do, and how we do it.


We move quickly, but don't let it compromise our work.

How we got started

Pathpoint started in 2017 with the mission to build software that would streamline the procurement of surplus lines coverage.

By partnering with major carriers and focusing on having the best technology in the market, we’ve built our agents a proprietary rate-quote-bind-issue system to enable friction-free placement across all of our carrier partners. We’ve been exclusively focused on surplus lines since we started. Today we’re licensed countrywide, a coverholder at Lloyd’s of London, backed by major investors, and actively growing our reach and available products.

Businesses need insurance, yet it isn’t always straightforward to secure. This created an exciting opportunity for us and we continue to work at it every day.
