Who we are

Kingsgate Insurance Center, Inc. was founded in 1990 in Fort Dodge, Iowa, by Ed Smith. Known then as Ag Business Associates, the company drew on Ed's experience in farming and farm management to serve the needs of those engaged in the ag industry, offering farm, crop, and benefits insurance to its customers.

Built on Midwestern values and a strong work ethic, the company continued to grow, and in 1995, relocated to the Kingsgate Center. There, we changed our name to Kingsgate Insurance, diversified our products, and expanded our staff. 

We are located in Fort Dodge, but with technology today, our clients can reach us whenever or wherever they need us.  We focus heavily on serving the North Central Iowa community, but we've formed strong client relationships throughout the entire state and midwest.  

While remaining true to our roots, Kingsgate now offers a full range of products and risk management services.  Through professional development, our staff has been trained to help our clients solve complex risk management problems with cost effective solutions.

Testimonials

A Great Policy, A Great Claim Experience
A Great Policy, A Great Claim Experience

Insurance is a contract between an insured and the insurance company. When a loss happens, how that contract was constructed becomes extremely important in determining the outcome of a claim. Matt Brown, owner of Pasquale's Italian Restaurant, explains why Kingsgate's approach focused on coverage first, and why that matters when you need the policy.
