Understanding your needs and the market for better solutions

Flagship Group is an independent marine and non-marine broking house specializing in both insurance and reinsurance. The Group in its current form was founded in June 2000, although the presence in the insurance markets of the key individuals involved dates back to the early 1950s.

The Group is divided into two companies one focusing on the marine aspect of the business and the other one on all other types of insurances our clients may need.

Our Managing Partner, Lykourgos E. Kanaris has been in the industry for over 30 years. In June 2000, Mr. Kanaris and his business partners founded the Flagship Group. Over the years the team has changed and evolved based on the market’s needs. 

Currently our team consists of individuals of different backgrounds. This mixture of people provides a deep understanding of the various needs our clients may have. Constantly aiming to offer the best services, each member of our team is allocated based on their expertise and past experiences in a dynamic environment.
