About Us


Protection for Life

Boyd Insurance & Investments has been providing personal and commercial insurance with investment expertise in the Gulf Coast of Florida for more than 45 years. 

At Boyd Insurance, we make it our mission to provide you with Protection for Life, with a full scale of insurance and investment products for all aspects of life. Our team of advisors has personal connections and meaningful relationships with clients, spanning generations.

Our commitment to providing protection for life in Manatee County began nearly five decades ago. In 1974, Wilbur Boyd recognized that the road to success had to be paved with exceptional customer service and quality. With a truly inspired entrepreneurial spirit, he founded Boyd Insurance & Investments on that premise. In the mid-70s he was joined by Jim Boyd and Pat Osburn, who soon carried on the family business together as co-owners. And today, the third generation, Austin Boyd, carries the torch into the future as our company President. 

We’re investing in our community, for future generations. 

Our team prides itself on involvement across a number of nonprofit organizations that make Manatee County a better place to live, work and play. Boyd Insurance team members are Leadership Manatee Alumni, past Chairs of Boards of Directors for high-impact organizations, and just generally wonderful people.

And in 2023, we’re investing in North Florida.

We are elated to introduce Michael Richter and his team in Bristol County as our Boyd North Florida Division. An hour west of Tallahassee along State Road 20, in a fully-renovated office space, Michael is proud and prepared to spread the Boyd experience and impact further than ever.

As an award-winning business, we make it a priority to support other companies and their needs. 

With decades of experience, Boyd also offers comprehensive employee benefits packages, giving you the edge you need to hire and retain quality, dedicated staff. Our team is here to help support your business and simplify day-to-day operations — we work hard to protect your hard work. We understand the importance of commercial insurance and relaying information to business owners to understand areas of vulnerability and investment. Our team works with employers and employees to create a well-rounded selection of benefits, and health insurance, a 401(k) plan, life insurance, and dental coverage are a few of the plans that they can consider offering. 

Boyd Insurance & Investments also works closely with individual clients to find the best fit for their financial needs. As an independent local agency, we can select an insurance carrier out of our broad selection of providers that will deliver you the best coverage at a competitive price. We pride ourselves on superior client service, ensuring that the process of insurance selection is fully transparent, approachable, and in the best interest of you,  our valued client.

Our agents and staff build relationships through reliability and trust, resulting in Protection for Life to help you, your family, and your business through all of life’s seasons. 

Whether you’re looking for homeowners insurance, commercial insurance, employee benefits, financial planning, investment advising, or simply protection for your retirement, our team is here to help guide you through choosing the right product mix to best secure your future.
