With 5% of the market share, Liberty Mutual has been serving its customers since 1912.
Liberty Mutual Group is a global insurer and the fourth largest property and casualty insurer in the U.S, ranking 68th on Fortune 100 list of the largest corporations in the U.S. The company has assets of more than $100 billion. Today the group employs over 50,000 people in over 900 locations around the globe, including 45 U.S. states. Liberty Mutual formed on July 1, 1912, as Massachusetts Employees Insurance Association (MEIA) and emerged after state law began to require that employers carry protection for their employees. MEIA provided workers’ compensation insurance to companies, and the first auto policy was sold in 1918. In 1920, the company used a then-new medium of film to teach people about workplace safety. The first Liberty Mutual home office opened its doors in Boston in 1937. In 1946, they created an emergency stop switch for escalators. In 1957 Liberty Mutual and Cornell University partnered to create a “safety car” by crash testing with dummies, something that had never been done before. In 1964, Liberty Mutual began selling life insurance though the Liberty Life Assurance Branch. The first battery-powered prosthetic elbow was created by the company in 1967. As Liberty Mutual grew, it expanded beyond North America by opening its first operation in the UK. In the 1990s, they continued to grow through the acquisition of large commercial and risk carriers. In 2008, Safeco became a part of Liberty Mutual. In 2016 reaffirmed its commitment to innovation by creating Solar Labs.
Liberty Mutual’s advertising campaign, “Only Pay for What You Need,” has been ongoing and even injected with a little humor most recently. In all Liberty Mutual commercials, the Statue of Liberty is in the background.
Today, Liberty Mutual Group offers insurance for the following: personal auto, homeowners, workers’ compensation, commercial multiple perils, commercial auto, general liability, global specialty, group disability, fire, and surety.
