INSURICA Southwest has a long history here in Arizona and throughout the Southwest. Beginning operations in 1989 as Minard-Ames Insurance Group, the agency set out to create an organization built on honesty, integrity and accountability to their customers. In 2001 we took on an incredible partner called INSURICA and became known as Minard-Ames/INSURICA. To maintain the local recognition of a name that promises a team who is local and committed to doing what’s right for their customers, on January 1, 2020, we became INSURICA Southwest.
As INSURICA Southwest, we maintain local ownership and decision-making power. As one of 30 agencies across the country making up INSURICA, we have access to the resources, expertise and financial strength that INSURICA provides.

What Makes Us Unique
This is where most companies would talk about their uncompromising professionalism, honesty, integrity, expertise and attention to detail. While all of that is true for us, what really makes us unique is our people and our culture. Not only is that true for INSURICA Southwest, it is also true of our parent company, INSURICA. As an organization, we are comprised of dedicated, passionate and caring individuals who take their responsibility to their customers very seriously. That is our culture and always will be.
