Kingstone Companies Inc., a New York-domiciled multi-line property/casualty insurance holding company, announced that its subsidiary, Kingstone Insurance Company, was granted approval to write P/C insurance in New Jersey from the state’s Department of Banking and Insurance.

The addition of New Jersey marks the fifth state where Kingstone Insurance Company is authorized as an admitted carrier of P/C insurance.

The company said it has applications for admission pending in one additional state that shares similar catastrophe exposure and opportunities as New York.

Kingstone’s Chairman and CEO Barry Goldstein stated, “We are pleased to add New Jersey as the fifth state in which Kingstone is licensed. It is our expectation that we can effectively leverage our reputation with our producers in New York and roll out an agency-only distribution model. We have recently added three states as part of our geographic expansion plans, and look forward to launching our new business efforts.”
