About Novum

At heart, Novum is an insurance carrier operating on an agency platform. Novum was formed in 2019 by former Fortune 500 technology and underwriting insurance executives who recognized the deterioration of unwriting expertise in the Managing General Agent space and the gap between startup digital wholesalers and the traditional commercial insurance distribution model.  Our core focus is offering customers competitive quotes in a fraction of the time of our competitors, without sacrificing an ounce of underwriting integrity.  Located in the Cleveland Ohio area, Novum’s foundation is built on exceptional underwriting and IT talent.
