“Providing an instant, affordable, and transparent insurance experience for landlords is at the heart of what we do at Obie,” said Ryan Letzeiser, co-founder and CEO of Obie. “Digital Partners has been at the forefront of insurtech innovation. We’re excited to partner with Digital Partners and look forward to growing together in this space.”

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Obie. Together we are providing a more accessible insurance offering for an underserved segment of the insurance market,” said Courtney Hill, Head of Digital Partners North America. “Obie has a proven track record of success when it comes to instant landlord insurance, and we are looking forward to partnering with them to expand their offering.”
