Aegis Insurance Associates, LLC is a multi-lines insurance brokerage located in Scottsdale, AZ with regional offices in Las Vegas and Chicago. Aegis was formed in 2010 as the next step in an evolutionary process that began in the late 80s when two senior officers from the Rollins Burdick Hunter office in Phoenix struck out on their own to create a new brokerage. After securing office space in Scottsdale Airpark each began to build their separate but intertwined agencies based on comprehensive risk analysis, solid risk management, thorough market selection, and vigorous claim defense.
Cheeney Insurance Agency has operated for over 20 years as a full service, multi-line insurance agency providing commercial property and casualty, life and health insurance, and personal lines coverage to Commercial and Executive clients in the Southwest. Medical Indemnity Group, Inc. has operated for over 20 years as a boutique insurance broker specializing in Professional Liability, Directors and Officers Liability, Health Insurance, and Workers Compensation coverage for Healthcare facilities, Hospitals, Doctors, Allied Professionals, and Attorneys in the western United States.
We are very pleased and humbled by the fact that many of the clients we placed coverage for in our early years continue to honor us with their faith in our ability to represent their insurance interests. We believe that faith comes from seeing our constant effort to understand their business, analyze their exposures, and search the marketplace for the best insurers to cover and defend any claims. Another fact that differentiates our Associates from other agents and brokers is that they are not just employees, they are owners as well. Consequently we all have a vested interest in choosing our clientele, adhering to the highest professional standards, and developing and maintaining long term relationships. Our Associates average well over 20 years insurance experience and many have worked on the company side as well as the brokerage side of the business.
That brings us to our choice of the name Aegis Insurance Associates. In Greek mythology, "Aegis" was the name of the shield carried by Zeus and the breastplate worn by Athena. In essence Aegis has come to mean "Protector" or "Defender" as in "under the aegis" of a court. Protection of our client's assets and vigorous defense of any claims against them is the prime focus of our agency.
