Company History

Since its incorporation in 1965 in Boston, Massachusetts, Lexington Insurance Company, an AIG* company, has grown to become one of the strongest and most stable surplus lines insurers in the market today. Starting from humble beginnings with four people and $3 million in gross written premium from its property-casualty business, Lexington was one of the first U.S. insurers formed to specialize in writing surplus lines coverage.

In 1971, Lexington expanded its global footprint with the establishment of a London office. In response to market conditions in 1986, Lexington’s growth continued with the formation of its Programs and Healthcare divisions. Expansion continued in 1993 with the establishment of Cat Excess Liability in Bermuda, again in response to market conditions in the aftermath Hurricane Andrew.

Today, with over 500 employees, Lexington Insurance is the leading U.S.-based surplus lines insurer and at the forefront of insurance innovation. Lexington provides security, flexibility, and quality with each insurance policy.

*AIG is a world leading property-casualty and general insurance organization serving more than 70 million clients around the world.
