Christensen Group Insurance

About us.

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 six 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.

“Relationships drive everything we do.”

— Gene Christensen, Founder

Foundational Pillars

Building a thriving business over three generations doesn’t happen by chance. Our founder, Gene Christensen, knew the importance of relationships when it came to establishing a solid foundation. His “3 Cs” form the pillars of our approach to sustainable growth.



First and foremost are our clients. We strive to establish quality relationships with our clients, while delivering the best service and products.



We're committed to acting with the highest level of integrity with our dedicated insurance carrier partners. They are the backbone of the insurance solutions we deliver to our clients.



A positive and empowering work environment is infectious. It rubs off within the walls of our offices, on our clients and carriers.
