Brand New Insurance Company

5 posts in this topic

Amidst some serious bad news for downtown (WFSB, Metlife), here's some good news about the birth of another Hartford insurance company.

Hartford is getting a brand-new company to support its nickname as the Insurance City: SPARTA Insurance Co., a business insurer with a twist.

It's relatively rare for a new insurer to be created in Connecticut as an independent company, not as part of an existing insurer. So SPARTA's upcoming launch is welcome news in the city, which still has such household names as Aetna, Travelers and The Hartford but is trying to bolster its reputation as an insurance capital.

Sounds intriguing. A definite boost to Hartford though.

Actually, it is mostly all people from Discover Re in Farmington, so there isn't really a net gain in jobs, but it's better to have them downtown...
