Expanding overseas, particularly to a country with a different language, can be a daunting task for any business. With Japanese companies having to find larger markets for their goods and services, the move becomes less worrisome once they first secure a proper insurance plan.
Founded 20 years ago, Nakazawa Insurance Services (NIS) provides a wide range of insurance products for both individuals and corporate clients, such as Business Owner Policy Insurance, General Liability Insurance, Property/Business Income Insurance, Ocean/Inland Marine Insurance, Workers’ Compensation Insurance, Directors and Officers Liability Insurance, Employment Practices Liability Insurance, Product Recall Insurance, and Group Health Insurance.
“Here in the U.S., you need to first secure your insurance even before getting your office keys or anything else,” Founder and President Ichiro Nakazawa told GMI POST, adding that getting a comprehensive business insurance plan at the start is like building a house on a solid foundation.
Nakazawa stressed this was particularly important for new small and medium-sized international businesses in the U.S. because of the many risks that come with entering a new market. These new investors, he said, can avoid costly unexpected expenses by choosing the right insurance coverage that best fits their unique needs.
Backed by two decades of experience in the industry, NIS can formulate personalized ‘order-made’ plans based on the different needs of its clients regardless of industry.
“I would like more Japanese businesses to be successful both in California and in Texas. If they need any help with the insurance side of their business, we’re ready to provide them with our expert support,” Nakazawa said.
NIS is a leading Japanese-speaking insurance provider with offices in California and Texas. It was established in 2003 and was acquired by Tokyo-based Agent Insurance Group (AIG) in 2015.
