About Christensen Group

Relationships drive
everything we do.

Founded in 1952 and 100% employee-owned, Christensen Group is the largest locally-owned, independent insurance and employee benefits agency in Minnesota. Our focus is connecting you to the solutions and expertise you need to effectively manage risk and protect your future. Christensen Group has been named a “Best Practices Agency” since 1996 by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers Of America.

Over the past seven decades, we’ve grown from a small family-owned insurance agency in Minneapolis to a Top 100 independent insurance brokerage in the country. And while we’ve learned a lot along the way, we haven’t forgotten that genuine relationships are the foundation we're built on.

Not your everyday agency

We take a unique approach to insurance, and you’ll experience the difference immediately. We take the time to get to know you and your unique needs. We have extensive experience on all sides of the negotiating table – underwriter, adjuster, broker, even buyer. We know where the rakes are and we’ll make sure you don’t step on them.


Small enough to know your name. Large enough to handle any insurance need.

70 years of securing tomorrows.

For seven decades we've had the privilege of securing futures and protecting what matters most to our clients. In this time, our spirit of independence has guided our growth from a small family insurance agency to a robust employee-owned creative risk management and benefits organization — one of the top 100 in the country. Our 70th anniversary has given us the opportunity to reflect on these years of growth and change, but one thing remains unflinchingly consistent: relationships drive everything we do.

It's the foundation of genuine connection that continues to allow us to attract and welcome industry-leading talent to our team. To partner with carriers who are as invested in our clients as we are. To get to the root of and deliver what these clients need, so they can grow right alongside us for the next 70 years.

WE'RE Honored by our carriers — year after year

Everybody loves a shiny trophy, but to us, these awards are more than just eye-candy; they're a reflection of our dedication to quality service and they underscore our unwavering commitment to our clients.
