The partnership with SIG meaningfully strengthens Relation’s existing capabilities and further expands the platform’s geographic presence in the Northeast.
Headquartered in Connecticut with additional operations in New York, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, SIG is one of the premier independent agencies in the Northeast. Founded in 1991, SIG focuses on commercial and personal lines insurance products, employee benefits, and financial services products.

We look forward to being part of the Relation family and enriching the relationships we have with our clients and employees.”
“The SIG Insurance Agencies was able to grow over the past 23 years from one location in Stamford, CT to twelve locations in Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, with hard work from a great SIG team that values client relationships,” said John Cody, Chief Operating Officer of SIG. “When we had the opportunity to meet the leadership at Relation, we realized this would be a great opportunity for SIG to help Relation grow in the Northeast. Our business models are very similar, and we feel that this relationship will allow us to serve our clients better and create new ones with the added benefits and expertise that the Relation family offers us.”
