Magna Carta Companies was founded in New York City in 1925 as a mutual insurance carrier for the taxicab industry. Throughout the decades, we have continuously expanded our product offering and underwriting territory. Today, Magna Carta specializes in underwriting the commercial real estate industry and we are one of the largest mutual carriers of commercial business in America. The group now consists of Public Service Insurance Company, Paramount Insurance Company and Western Select Insurance Company. Magna Carta began as Public Service Mutual Casualty Insurance Corporation and the name was later shortened to PSM Insurance Companies. When we celebrated our 75-year anniversary in 2000, our group adopted the trade name of Magna Carta Companies.

The Magna Carta, Latin for "Great Charter," emanates from the fields of Runnymede, England in the year 1215, when King John granted rights and protections to individuals. This inscribed proclamation proved to be so durable that it represents the foundation of the Bill of Rights of the United States of America. Magna Carta Companies' adoption of this identity symbolizes the rights and protections inherent in each insurance policy we issue. And, like the original charter, our commitment will endure the test of time.
