TIG Advisors dates back to 1898 with the creation of the Rollins & Rollins agency. Here, our agency founders established a legacy of integrity & consistency. Today, we are a diverse advisory firm anchored by expertise in Business Insurance, Benefits & Employer Services, & Personal Solutions.
We are proud of our founders & their family’s impact in the state of MO. Rollins’ family included James S. Rollins, considered “the father of the University of Missouri” for his successful effort in getting the University of Missouri built in Boone County. A member of Vandiver’s family, Willard Duncan Vandiver, is credited with making the declaration that gave Missouri its motto, “The Show Me State”: “I come from a state that raises corn & cotton & cockleburs & Democrats, & frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me.”
The agency became Rollins & Vandiver & soon changed to Rollins, Vandiver & Digges when Charlie Digges Sr. joined the firm in the late 1950s. In 1981, Rollins, Vandiver & Digges & Conley Myers Agency formed The Insurance Group & later acquired the Columbia Insurance agency. Our office was in the historic Guitar Building in downtown Columbia until 2007 when we moved into our new facility in south Columbia.
As the world has become more complex, we have evolved to help our clients achieve greater success. We have expanded our footprint with a location in St. Louis, & our team of experts has grown. While our company has evolved, we still honor our legacy and the values that have made us a trusted advisor for over 120 years.
