“For nearly 100 years we have been continually improving our skills and finding innovative ways to protect what is most valuable to our clients. We are a local company that has been helping the people of Hawaii navigate life — not just insurance needs — since 1929.” — Chason Ishii, President, Atlas Insurance
Our story began in Honolulu in 1929 when a small independent business that promised world-class service grew into what you see today — Hawaii’s largest insurance agency. What sets us apart are our long-standing roots in the community. Hawaii is our home. It is where we live, where we raise our families, and where we work.
Our founder, Honolulu businessman Masayuki Tokioka, began working with partners to put together a locally financed hui to serve Hawaii’s expanding immigrant population.
He built the business on the cornerstones of integrity, transparency, relationships and unparalleled broker expertise.
Today we employ more than 100 world-class specialists in risk management, employee benefits consulting, construction, surety, AOAO, property and casualty, claims management and personal insurance.
Atlas also has global strategic partnerships from London and Germany to Korea, Japan and beyond. Our main office in Honolulu has convenient branches that span the state: in Kahului, Maui; Lihue, Kauai; Honoka‘a, Hilo and Kona on Hawaii island.
Blue Print Process
Atlas is uniquely positioned to offer the most competitive products and services from a wide range of local and national providers, including partnerships with the largest insurance brokers and being licensed in all 50 states.
Nobody else in town can match our combination of service, value and expertise! We approach each client one at a time in order to understand his or her unique needs. Then, we work closely together to find the most competitive options that will best meet those needs.
We are able to achieve results that exceed expectations by leveraging:
- Years of experience to develop innovative, creative solutions
- Company breadth and depth to attract competitively priced programs
- Vast resources to effectively address needs where specialized expertise is required
Our Blueprint process extensively analyzes your coverage, minimizing your risk through training, cutting-edge programs and preventive strategies. With this methodology, we are able to provide you with the best coverage at optimal cost.
As a broker, we offer the advantage of:
- Comparison shopping and honing in on the best cost for the coverage needed
- Giving advice on how to best bundle or customize policies in ways that carrier agents may not be able to do (either because they are restricted in their policy offerings, or may simply lack the insight/expertise regarding specific needs)
- Bringing a broader understanding of multiple carrier offerings and key benefits to the table
We are your advocate, making sure you get the coverage you need, the claims response you deserve and the efficient resolution essential to your continued success.
It is our belief in our core values that led us to becoming Hawaii’s largest insurance agency in the state.
