Global Atlantic Financial Group Limited, a multi-line insurance and reinsurance company, was founded at Goldman Sachs in 2004 and separated as an independent company in April of 2013. In less than a decade, Global Atlantic has established itself as an innovative insurance and reinsurance provider. The company entered the life & annuity market in 2005 by acquiring Allmerica Life, renamed Commonwealth Annuity and Life Insurance Company. It subsequently entered the property & casualty market in 2006 through its Arrow companies in Bermuda, and in 2008 launched its syndicate at Lloyd’s of London. The business now operates under the Ariel Re brand. In 2013, Global Atlantic acquired the Aviva USA Life business, rebranded Accordia Life, and in 2014 added Forethought Financial Group. These subsidiaries now form the foundation of a growing retail franchise to operate alongside its premier reinsurance business. The combined organization has over $30 billion in assets and 10 offices. Global Atlantic’s success is driven by experienced leadership, a long-term focus on policyholders, financial discipline and a culture that emphasizes teamwork, innovation and excellence.
