When you hear the name Tangram, you may think of a clever geometric puzzle – or a challenge with more than one solution – and either way, you’d be right.

Our name was inspired by the concepts of creativity and reinvention, and by the belief that there’s more than one way to solve complex problems, serve customers and build a world class business.

What Can You Expect?

When you collaborate with Tangram, you step into a risk management think tank. We are a program business builder and distributor, operating differently than most insurance organizations in five notable ways:


We only offer bespoke insurance programs for defined market niches.


We facilitate the creation of a range of insurance structures depending on the need and opportunity; these structures can range from the traditional to the alternative.


We support our brokers and clients in gaining access to highly specialized insurance solutions. We engage with brokers where there is a mutual advantage in partnering together.


Our carrier partners uniquely align themselves with Tangram in select niches as their exclusive program partner. This means our brokers and clients can only access these custom built insurance solutions through our company.


Expect experienced underwriting and dedicated sales and customer service support. This translates to a synchronized sales cycle with our brokers and a steady hand for our customers.

Why Tangram?

If your business resides in one of our market niches, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better program. That’s because we work deeply to engineer risk management solutions that combine the most advantageous mix of coverage, risk retention, loss prevention and other risk management services within that particular industry.

Like a Tangram puzzle, our solutions weather the test of time because we continuously push the boundaries, try new things, constantly question the status quo, and lean into progress.

Tangram is an insurance partner when you:

  • Need access to the best niche markets
  • Must employ fresh thinking
  • Need a responsive, high-service partner
  • Desire the power of a motivated, diverse and experienced team
