Kin is a pure-play, direct-to-consumer digital insurer focused on the homeowners insurance market.
Kin’s mission is to reimagine homeowners insurance for every new normal.
Kin Insurance was founded in 2016 by Sean Harper, Lucas Ward and Stephen Wooten. The company is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, and currently operates in Florida, Louisiana and California.
Kin offers homeowners, landlord, condo, and mobile home insurance through the Kin Interinsurance Network (KIN), a reciprocal exchange owned by its customers who share in the underwriting profit.
Kin leverages thousands of property data points to customize coverage and prices through a super simple user experience. Kin’s web and mobile platform transforms the process of securing home insurance, making insurance more accessible than ever.
Kin's technology and direct-to-consumer model provides affordable pricing without compromising coverage, even in areas most impacted by climate change. Members report an average $700 savings when they switch to Kin for homeowners insurance between March 2022 and February 2023.
