K2 Insurance Services’ subsidiary, Aegis Specialty Insurance Services (Aegis Specialty) is pleased to announce that it has formed a partnership with DB Insurance Company to provide homeowners (HO-3) and dwelling fire (DP-3) policies in California.  The new partnership further supports the popularity of the homeowner and dwelling fire products that Aegis has been selling throughout California for many years.
