Brief History:

Back in 1904, Amadeo Giannini started up what was to become the Bank of Italy in a rehabilitated saloon out in San Francisco, California. The goal was to provide everyone an equal opportunity to find respectable financing options, no matter what income level the person was at. He proved he was serious shortly after the 1906 earthquake and resulting fires. He would extend financing to people who needed it, with little more than a handshake as their word on repayment. Later, in 1928, the Bank of Italy combined forces with the Bank of America, leading to another acquisition in 1930, from the Occidental Life Insurance Company, by way of the Transamerica Corporation.

In the decades that followed, Transamerica gained greater financial holdings within the company, eventually holding a majority interest. Since then, the company has taken over the life insurance portion, financial services portion, and the customer service portion from the smaller corporations that it has acquired. Transamerica Life Insurance Company now holds over $100 billion in assets and over $1 trillion in current life insurance policies, and can offer even more types of coverage to those who are interested.

The Transamerica Life Insurance Company is now also a part of what many would say is among the leaders in financial service organizations of the world, Aegon, N.V. This allows the company to offer more financial services than in years past, giving customers access to retirement plans, investment opportunities, mutual funds, and annuities, amongst their other offerings of many different types of life insurance policies, as well as dental policies, casualty and disability policies, and long-term policies.


Transamerica Life Insurance Company has over 10,000 employees at their different locations around the world.
