  • About Nationwide Nationwide is one of the largest insurance and financial services companies in the world, focusing on domestic property and casualty insurance, life insurance and retirement savings, and asset management. Headquartered in Columbus Ohio, Nationwide was founded in 1925 to provide insurance for farmers. Today, we employ more than 30,000 associates, operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and have a relationship with over 3000 independent contractor agency principals. Nationwide is not tied to Wall Street or maximizing profits for shareholders. Rather our mutual heritage allows us to focus primarily on our policyholders As a nationwide agent, you’ll provide a valuable service and the human touch our customers want in their time of need. It’s a mutually rewarding advantage that can give you a true feeling of purpose.
