Commercial Insurance

We are entrepreneurs that pivot with our clients. We are directly connected to our clients’ results, and we always respond to their interests first, and always.

Jones Brown has insured everything from travelling pandas to submersible robotics, major film productions to medical implants, blockchain and cryptocurrency to diamond mines.

Understanding your business allows us to outperform in the marketplace and deliver real value. Distinguished by our peerless client service and best-in-class team of experts, we are deeply committed to delivering solutions that let you sleep comfortably at night.

Our Approach and Key Practice Areas

We are committed to providing you with an elevated client experience in a professional and responsive way. Our business is a relationship business. We get personal within our clients’ organizations to establish a human connection.
The results are better, the experience is better. Most importantly, when things go wrong, you want to deal with people to solve the problems and so we make an extra effort to make the people side of our work a priority.

While we believe our niche is being great generalists and pride ourselves in being able to insure just about everything, we do view the following as some of our key practice areas.

Real Estate

Real Estate and Infrastructure are major drivers of the Canadian economy and we very deliberately have chosen this vertical as one to specialize in.
