These figures reflect the combined performance of all group companies, including Western National Mutual Insurance Company and its subsidiaries: American Freedom Insurance Company, 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 $2.20 billion, Surplus of $884.3 million, and Direct Written Premium of $959.8 million.

“These outstanding year-end numbers for 2022, achieved amidst a record year for storm-related losses, are the result of a year of incredible effort and customer service by our employees and Independent Agency partners,” said Richard Long, President and CEO of Western National Insurance Group. “The storm activity was a challenge not only for our Group, but for our whole industry, and I’m proud of how our Group’s people and solid business plan enabled us to both serve our customers and further grow our policyholder’s surplus. This surplus growth adds to a strong foundation of financial stability and security for our customers' continued protection in 2023 and beyond.”
