About Farmers Insurance Exchange

Farmers Group (dba Farmers Underwriters Association), a US subsidiary of Zurich Financial Services, provides insurance management services to members of the Farmers Insurance Exchange, Truck Insurance Exchange, and Fire Insurance Exchange (which combined form a top US property/casualty insurer). Its Farmers Management Services unit doesn't own the exchanges, but receives a fee acting as the companies' attorneys-in-fact. It chooses risks, distributes policy statements to customers, collects premiums, and provides other non-claims related services. Farmers is also the holding company of Farmers New World Life Insurance and specialty insurer Bristol West.


Farmers Group's other holdings include Farmers Re, which provides reinsurance to the Farmers Exchanges; and Bristol West Holdings, a provider of non-standard auto insurance in more than 40 states. Its 21st Century Insurance unit offers personal auto insurance nationwide. In all, Farmers Group serves more than 10 million households.

Additionally, Farmers Financial Solutions provides such products as mutual funds, life insurance, and annuities, and the firm's Farmers Action for Communities of Tomorrow (F.A.C.T.) program extends services to underserved areas of California that include urban districts.

Farmers Group accounts for about 35% of its parent's operating profit.
