This NIA isn't a trendy yoga-dance-tai chi program or a national institute, but rather an insurance brokerage serving customers throughout the US. The NIA Group provides home, automobile, life, and other business and personal insurance policies. It also offers benefits consulting, risk management, and loss control services. The company represents such carriers as The Hartford Financial Services, Encompass Insurance, and Safeco. The NIA Group has some 500 agents at its offices in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Florida. However, it primarily provides services in New York City. The NIA Group was acquired by mega-broker Marsh & McLennan in 2009.
