Avant Insurance is named for the French proposition meaning "Before".
For us, that means being there for our clients before the trouble happens, not just after. We will relentlessly pursue the right coverage so our clients are protected when disaster strikes.
Avant is locally owned and operated, meaning we have no ownership or commitment to any Insurance Company, Bank or International Entity. Because of this, we have the ability to remain agile and pivot quickly to adjust to the changing world, while always keeping our clients' and employees' best interests front and center.
Avant has recently launched a 4 day work week pilot for all of our staff! This means your salary is based on a 40 hour work week but you're only scheduled for 32 hours per week. Being a family owned brokerage means we understand how important a healthy work/life balance is and we strive to give our staff the flexibility they need, no matter what life throws at them.
