Employees will also be able to utilize state-of-the-art technology in conference rooms. Global Atlantic currently has nearly 300 employees in Hartford, with 100 of those hires occurring in 2023. Companywide, a third of Global Atlantic’s new roles were created in Hartford last year, which is now the largest of the company’s nine offices across the country and in Bermuda. Global Atlantic’s expanded footprint will now allow the company to support up to 400 employees in the capital city.

On hand to celebrate the official ribbon-cutting event was Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, Commissioner-designate Daniel O’Keefe from the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development, and Hartford Mayor Arunan Arulampalam.

"Global Atlantic Financial Group is a leading insurance company with offices all over the United States, and the fact that they chose Hartford as a location to expand and add jobs is a testament to our state’s exceptionally talented workforce and support for the insurance industry," Governor Lamont said. "Since opening its Hartford offices several years ago, Global Atlantic has continued to grow and strengthen its presence in Connecticut, and I look forward to seeing this company thrive here for years to come."

The expansion of Global Atlantic’s presence in Hartford and its contribution to the city’s economic development has been a core focus for the company over the past several years.

"We could not be prouder to continue our investment in Hartford and we appreciate the support of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development."
