Western National Insurance Group Announces Year-End 2021 Results

(Minneapolis, Minn.) Western National Insurance Group today announced full-year financial results through December 31, 2021. Significant comparative financial measures include:

These figures reflect the combined performance of all group companies, including Western National Mutual Insurance Company and its subsidiaries: American Freedom Insurance Company, Arizona Automobile Insurance Company (of which the sale to Alfa Insurance closed on March 1, 2022), Nevada General Insurance Company, Pioneer Specialty Insurance Company, Umialik Insurance Company, and Western National Assurance Company. These numbers do not include results from affiliates. With affiliate results, the Group’s year-end results include Total Assets of $2.04 billion, Surplus of $826.5 million, and Direct Written Premium of $908.2 million.

“These outstanding year-end numbers for 2021 are the result of the continued hard work of our employees and agency partners over the past year,” said Richard Long, President and CEO of Western National Insurance Group. “The continuing pandemic presented some unique challenges, but our employees did an excellent job adapting in order to best serve our policyholders, and it shows in the results. These results add to our Group’s strong foundation of financial security, and we look forward to building on them in 2022 and beyond for the continued protection of our policyholders.”
