Hawaiian Insurance and Guaranty Company, Limited
Hawaiian Insurance and Guaranty Company, Limited (HIG) is best known as a major insurance provider for Hawaii’s treasured homes, autos, and businesses. While the company has been around for what seems like forever, it’s for a good reason. HIG is proud to celebrate 100 years in 2015, tracing its roots back to its establishment in 1915 in Hilo, Hawaii.
With a reputation for excellence, HIG has shaped countless careers—many insurance professionals can claim having been employed by HIG at some point in their professions. The company is also proud of its track record of employees with decades-long and even lifetime careers within the company, such as Winifred Casuga, HIG Underwriter, who celebrates 54 years this year.
HIG’s success can, perhaps, be credited to the company’s priority on service and relationships—both with independent insurance agencies as well as individuals and communities throughout the state. “HIG always strives to provide quality insurance solutions that protect our clients and their hard-earned assets,” says Charlene Moriarity, HIG’s President. “We believe in partnering with our customers and that means they must be able to count on us to be loyal, supportive, responsive, and always as helpful as possible. Our team does a phenomenal job with this.”
The core values and mission that provided the foundation and fueled the humble beginnings of HIG continue even to this day. With a penchant for growth, HIG is proud to expand its insurance product line to better meet the needs of Hawaii’s residents with a renewed commitment and reinvigorated passion in providing products that today’s customer needs.
Whether by providing protection for life’s unexpected mishaps to supporting good causes within the communities it serves, HIG is deeply devoted to the future of Hawaii families and businesses. “Being able to provide exceptional and empathetic service and support to a customer who just found themselves in an unfortunate situation is what drives us,” Ms. Moriarity says. “To know that we can help improve or even stabilize lives—through all of the ups and downs that life has to offer each of us—is an honor and privilege, and it guides everything that we do.”
