"A Personable Company Keeping You on Course"
North Star Mutual is a Minnesota based regional insurance carrier specializing in Farm, Home, Auto and Small Business Insurance Products. North Star, formed in 1920, is celebrating a century of service this year. “One hundred years is quite an achievement," said Jeff Mauland, President and CEO, “and I am proud that our policyholders, agents, and employees who have contributed to the company's success over the years can all celebrate in this legacy." Today the company writes over $450 million in premium and insures over 330,000 policyholders across eight states. All business is written through a network of more than 1,500 independent agency partners located throughout the operating territory.
“Independent Agents have built our company and are vital to our success," said Jeff Mauland. “We are committed to our agency partners who are in the best position to meet the needs of their policyholders. We support the Minnesota Agent Association, not only for their work to provide many benefits to agent members, but also for their strong support and promotion of our industry."
Uniquely located in the small farming community of Cottonwood, North Star prides itself on its rural values and personable service. The company is the top Farm writer in Minnesota, working in partnership with township mutuals across the state. North Star has been a recognized leader in the agricultural insurance market and has had a historic emphasis on insuring farm and rural properties in the Upper Midwest.
“We have many excellent, long-term relationships with our agents and are grateful for the outstanding support we have received over the years," said Jeff Mauland. “Our rural location provides us with a very experienced, dedicated and caring staff which, combined with user-friendly technology, are keys to our success. Agents appreciate and value our consistency in claims handling, product and policy service." Agents Meetings and Advisory Councils are also held each year to stay current on issues important to agents.
North Star is proud of its financial stability and strong commitment to serving agents and policyholders. The company is rated A+ Superior by A.M. Best and in 2019, was again selected as a Wards Top 50 Property/Casualty Insurance Company for the 15th consecutive year. North Star looks forward to its continued commitment of working closely with its agency partners in the years to come.
