With nearly a dozen offices throughout Wyoming, WYFI provides commercial insurance, personal lines and high net worth/mass affluent insurance solutions, employee benefits and surety bonds. WYFI specializes in various industries, including construction, healthcare, hospitality and transportation, which supports Hub’s Specialty practices by complementing and strengthening its existing capabilities.
