Ogilvy Insurance – at your service since 1924

From our early beginnings in 1924, we have kept pace with the many changes that have taken place over the years while maintaining the personalized service our clients have come to expect. Our values are straightforward:

  • We value honesty, integrity and caring.
  • We value teamwork and mutual respect.
  • We value personal responsibility and accountability.
  • To state it simply, we value professionalism.

We know you work hard for what you’ve earned in life. When it comes to insurance, we are committed to negotiate on your behalf and give you the best information and advice so that you can make decisions that make sense for you. Financial services are about protecting your assets, not taking your money.

We know this, so we will always work to find you the best products, with the most value, special offers and discounts available. This is our commitment to you.

For over 90 years and counting, we are at your service!

At Ogilvy, we still do things the old fashioned way. We value the relationships we have built with our clients, which is why throughout the years we have opted to stay with the classic model of broker-client relationships. You won’t find a call center in our offices. As an Ogilvy client, you work with your own broker who gets to know you and your needs.  Every one of our clients has a direct line by which they can reach their broker. After hours, we have a personalized claims service available to answer your call if you have an emergency claim.

We value strong team work and family values, so we encourage an environment where our brokers not only build relationships with you, but with each other. This way, if you do speak to another member of our team, they will be able to help you just like your own broker. We will always work together to take care of what is important to you.

  • Our senior brokers and management team all have at least a decade of experience in their fields. Our expertise is what sets us aside from the rest.
  • We create collaborative environments so that everyone on the team learns and shares this knowledge together.
  • Our priority is providing you with top service and the knowledge we have become known for in the industry.
Ogilvy Insurance works with top insurers to provide you with the best. 

We have strong relationships with our insurers.

As active and progressive brokers in the industry, it is not unusual for our insurers to involve us in pilot projects and round tables. This puts us in a position to hear about what is changing before it happens, and contribute to the changes that come along as the industry responds to the current environment. We take your words and your feedback and we deliver it to the insurers. Sometimes insurance can be hard to understand, and certainly we all have our issues when we see rates rise. At Ogilvy, we hear you and we actively try to contribute to see the changes you are looking for in the industry as a whole.

Here are some of the insurers we represent:

  • Aviva
  • BI&I
  • Blue Cross
  • Chubb
  • Economical
  • Guarantee of North America
  • Intact
  • Lloyds
  • Manulife
  • Royal & Sun Alliance
  • Sun Life

What our clients are saying about us

As we talked on the phone, you are really nice to take the time to talk of the little things in life, thank you.
Mrs. Helen S.
Thank you for your invitation to provide some feedback on my recent cancellation of the above-referenced policy. In fact, I have been insured with Ogilvy and Ogilvy for my home since 1970, so I hated leaving you. Even worse, Violet Laniel has been a spectacular agent and, this year, she identified a much lower cost insurance supplier for us.. The problem arose because my wife and I have our automobile insurance with this same insurer, arranged with a group discount through my wife’s employment . When I contacted the agent concerning the same-insurance-company discount, I discovered that we could also get the group discount on our home insurance by transferring to the same agent. I felt terrible about doing this, and wish to thank you and particularly Ms. Laniel for your excellent service and support over the years.

I first started dealing with your company in the late 70’s. Angus Ogilvy suggested that I look into dealing with his brother for my insurance needs. I did so, and I have never regretted my move. I have always received excellent service and advice from all with whom I have dealt with in your company. I wish you and your company continued success.
John B.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your cooperation and guidance. Certainly buying insurance is not an easy task for anyone, especially since there is so much we don’t know about it. Even though I found the same kind of insurance for a lot less money, we decided that because of the service we have received in the past from your office, and mostly because of the amazing help you provided us with, we will keep all our insurance with you, including the one for our new home. We will forward a note to Mr. Bruce Ogilvy in the following days, and let him know how happy we are with your services, Thank you very much.
Serge C.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help with the new car, the accident and all related issues. You have been most helpful and I like to express my sincere appreciation for all you have done.
Lutz D.
Je tiens a vous remercier encore une fois pour la rapidité et efficacité de service.
Pierre G.
I am writing concerning your wonderful worker Nabila Hamzaoui who helped me purchase insurance from your company for my 5 months trip to California. I am so thankful to have fallen on Nabila for my inquiry that led to my purchase. I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for her wonderful service and graceful follow up. It is because of amazing workers like her that I greatly enjoyed my experience and I do not want this to go unnoticed. It is not everyday that we encounter unique and valuable people who have great impacts in our lives and I wanted to make sure that her manager gets this employee feedback from a client who has been traveling all over the world for the last 8 years. Her organizational skills and attention to detail are exceptional. Her kindness will be cherished and I feel very confident now that she is overseeing my insurance policy. I will forever be a loyal customer because of her. Thank you for your time.
M.S.
Nabila, just wanted thank you for all your help in resolving my problem with the pharmacy. Please could you convey my gratitude to all those who were involved. Also, I would like to say that I have found everyone very patient and professional. A very satisfied client who will recommend Ogilvy Insurance to any and all.
Nancy D.
Thank you for always making sure to find the best possible travel insurance to meet our needs. You always reassure me and make me feel valued. I also would like you to know how impressed I am with Manulife and the way my case was handled when I fell and broke my hip while vacationing in the US. Within hours the hospital and Manulife approved surgery. My best interests were met in a timely and compassionate way.

I am very impressed with Ogilvy and Manulife!
