Our mission at Delos is to become the first insurance company to actively help protect our customers from wildfires. In a time when so many insurance companies are retreating to big cities and pulling out of communities at risk of wildfire, we have built best-in-class data analytics which enables us to deeply understand wildfire risk, and offer insurance to communities which other companies won't insure. Not only do we protect people financially, but we also use our technology to help people decrease the risk to their homes so we can actually protect them before disaster strikes. This is the way insurance should be.
Delos Insurance was founded in San Francisco in 2015 and is a technology-powered insurance company. We are a Managing General Agent (MGA), initially focused on offering homeowners insurance in California. As an MGA, Delos offers policies on behalf of our partner, Canopius US Insurance, Inc (an A- rated carrier).
