It is the mission of each and every employee of Forest Insurance Facilities to provide knowledgeable and timely responses to every question or submission.  Further, it is our goal to provide the best available quote with the broadest coverages allowed by our superior companies.


Wayne G. Forest, Sr. founded Forest Insurance Facilities on January 1, 1983, with the idea of offering professional services to a select group of Louisiana retail agents.  By keeping the number of retail agents limited it allowed for Forest Insurance Facilities to provide personal and unparalleled service.  Forest Insurance Facilities has kept with this simple concept and has become the standard for which all other Brokers are measured against.

Forest Insurance Facilities’ staff is experienced, knowledgeable, and committed to providing an unmatched level of expertise and service to retail insurance agents.
