Thimble is a leading insurtech platform for small business customers and agents. Thimble allows customers to quickly get insurance coverage by the job, month or year using its award-winning app, website, or over the phone.
Founded by serial entrepreneurs Jay Bregman and Eugene Hertz, Thimble works with a variety of carriers to bring the best insurance solutions to small businesses, brokers and agents. Since it was founded, Thimble has delivered more than 170,000 policies to small businesses across the United States.
Thimble was acquired by Arch Insurance, a unit of Arch Capital Group Ltd. (Nasdaq: ACGL), a publicly listed Bermuda exempted company with approximately $15.6 billion in capital at Dec. 31, 2022. Arch, which is part of the S&P 500 Index, provides insurance, reinsurance and mortgage insurance on a worldwide basis through its wholly owned subsidiaries.
Thimble's innovative culture and technical expertise are an incredible addition to Arch Capital’s portfolio of offerings. The acquisition expands Arch’s suite of digital solutions for small business customers and brokers. Thimble will remain a separate subsidiary, working closely with the Arch Group team.
Our unique culture is built around our six core values:
Think Wild, Act Tame
Be relentlessly creative. Question everything. Get to know the rules so well, you can use them in new ways. Be the industry’s compliant radicals.
Green Means GO
Act. Move forward. Learn. You can only make a decision based on the best information you have – so make it.
Own Every Detail
Be ruthlessly precise. Disciplined. Sweat the small stuff.
Simplify, Simplify, Simplify
Get to the point. Make it crystal clear. Cut everything else. It’s our job to make insurance easy – however hard that is for us.
Every Moment Counts
Show up early and ready. Deliver on time or before. Make the most of your time, so others can make the most of theirs.
Treat every person, and their ideas, with respect. Cherish diversity.
