With a clear vision toward the future, Bankers’ leaders have negotiated the ever-changing needs of the consumer market and addressed them head on, with innovative products and services. The US Bicentennial saw a small, family-owned insurer enter the marketplace. At the turn of the next decade, the company began to invest considerable capital and extensive time in building an infrastructure to support its ongoing stability and future security, flourishing as a niche insurer. Bankers engages in profitable businesses for the purpose of enhancing the lives of their people, providing value to their customers and positively impacting their community.
