The Zutz Group is Wilmington, Delaware's largest insurance agency. Founded in 1940 by Harry David Zutz, the firm began offering insurance products from a one-room office in the Delaware Trust Building in downtown Wilmington.

Our firm has evolved over the years responding to the varied needs of our clients. After more than 65 years of successful trading as a private firm, in March 2006, we became part of one of America's most successful organizations, Hilb Rogal & Hobbs, the 8th largest U. S. insurance and risk management intermediary and 10th largest in the world.

We provide Personal, Business and Life, Health & Disability insurance products to thousands of individuals and businesses and are specialists at creating sound insurance programs for Associations and their members.
