We are dedicated to the development of our associates, unlocking profitable growth opportunities for our agents and brokers while working relentlessly to meet the distinctive coverage and service needs of our clients. We measure our success by the relationships we build and the trust we earn.


Our original roots date back to 1948. Known then as CalFarm Insurance, a small farm owner and surety bond issuer, Nationwide Insurance purchased the company in 1999.

In 2013, Nationwide created a specialized property and casualty insurance offering for clients who value flexible coverages and comprehensive protection for their assets.

Led by President Jim Pedersen, Nationwide Private Client brings a unique, distinctive policy offering to market on behalf of its clients. Our highly skilled and experienced sales, underwriting, claims and service professionals are focused on providing the best solutions and service for our clients. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, we developed an innovative approach to simplify the insurance process, while delivering customized policies.

We have been in business since 1926, and hold an A1 rating from Moody’s and an A+ rating from A.M. Best and S&P. We invite you to read about our financial strength and company ratings.
