About GuideOne

We operate a little differently than most insurers – we don’t work for customers, we work with them, because the work they do is so vital to the strength of our communities. We’re proud to say that we’ve been an advocate and an innovator for our customers since our founding in 1947.

In 1962, we recognized that community organizations needed an affordable, efficient insurance product that rolled many coverages into one. To fulfill the needs of our customers and our communities, we developed the first multi-peril policy, protection against different kinds of losses all covered under one package, making it more convenient more economical to insure your organization.

More than 50 years later, our values haven’t changed. With an eye on the ever-evolving world around us, we continue to create policies that protect the people who strengthen our communities through their works for churches, educational institutions, senior living communities, nonprofit organizations and now small businesses.

We operate in all 50 states through a network of thousands of independent agents who serve more than 51,000 commercial policyholders.
