Our Story

For Atlas Insurance, Hawaii is home. It’s where our company started in 1929 - a small, independent agency that promised world-class coverage right here in the islands.

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.

Since then, Atlas has grown along with its loyal ohana to become the largest and oldest insurance agency in Hawaii.

Today we employ more than 120 world-class experts in risk management, employee benefits, construction, surety, property and casualty, claims management and personal insurance.

Our prestigious business client base is over 400 strong from banking and hotels to tech to non-profits and local government. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of local families count on Atlas for every aspect of their personal insurance needs.

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; and Hilo and Kona on Hawaii island.

We believe that every client is unique with special qualities that make each one successful. Our goal is to understand your personal goals and vision. Your risk appetite. Your coverage needs. Ultimately, we strive to build a long-term relationship by earning your trust.

This has been our style of doing business since 1929, and we are proud to carry on that tradition of servicing our clients far into the future.
