Insurance Agents and Brokers hold positions of great responsibility. The public and businesses look to insurance agency and brokers for accurate, reliable information on how to get solid, trustworthy risk protection. Accordingly, states regulate the insurance industry and require firms to register and in some cases, obtain several regulatory licenses.
Sitting across the water from New York City, Jersey City shares in the region's busy shipping and international commerce. Busy shipping ports and access to several waterways including the Atlantic Ocean make Jersey City an ideal, less busy port. However, several large companies have also taken advantage of Jersey City's lower tax rates and less dense environment including several in finance, distribution and food manufacturing. From a licensing perspective, Jersey City is far less regulated than neighboring New York. With a simple local licensing process and a relatively efficient state process, entrepreneurs will find Jersey City a welcoming environment.
