In many ways, the insurance industry is a mirror image of our diverse and dynamic society. Virtually no aspect of our culture is immune to risk. This is particularly true in our free enterprise system, which is driven in large part by family-owned and operated businesses. More than a century ago, the founders of Federated Insurance sensed the unique contributions family businesses made in America. From this understanding has grown a commitment to serve these companies in a way that extends well beyond merely selling insurance products.
