BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / May 8, 2024 / Openly, the premium homeowners insurance provider, announced it will begin rolling out to independent insurance agents and homeowners in the state of Connecticut.

"Continuing our expansion across the U.S. remains integral to our strategy, and we are thrilled to be building out our Northeast presence with our entry into Connecticut," said Ty Harris, CEO and co-founder of Openly.

We're excited to begin working across Connecticut to deliver an efficient and transparent homeowners insurance experience to these agents and their customers."

Connecticut is the 22nd state to make Openly's premium homeowners insurance coverage available. Openly offers premium homeowners insurance sold exclusively through independent agents, working closely alongside them to ensure homeowners and their properties are well-protected.
