Private Ownership of our Businesses- Our focus is long term. We strive to establish and develop sound relationships between our customers and insurance markets so that all parties in the relationship benefit substantially in the long run. The very structure of our corporation and businesses must reflect the fact that this goal can be achieved effectively only if we are able to focus primarily on the long term. Our ability to concentrate on the customer-market relationship to the extent that we are committed would be hampered by serving shareholders in addition to our clients and our employees. Private ownership permits us to experiment, take risk and to be creative. We are committed to the private ownership of our businesses.
Our World- We behave responsibly as a corporate citizen. We think beyond our business to our communities. We cultivate hope for our future by investing in people, education, good works and charities. We will demonstrate good corporate citizenship through the ethical conduct of our business.
