Life is important. So is financial stability. The Western Reserve Life Insurance Company’s primary objective ever since it was founded by Bill Callaghan in Ohio on November of 1958 was to provide people’s lives with financial security. In the years between the founding and 1962, the company grew rapidly as they expanded and acquired other insurance companies with Jack Kenney spearheading the group and leading them to become one of the nation’s top providers of variable universal life insurances and annuities. The following years found the company merging and spinning off from larger insurance companies until Western Reserve Life’s first Variable Universal Life insurance product was launched in 1986. This was the revolutionary product that sustained the company’s growth as they merged with the AEGON Insurance group in February 1991 to help Americans achieve their dreams of financial stability.
