25 Largest Insurance Companies in the US by Assets in 2024

In this piece, we will take a look at the 25 largest insurance companies in the US by assets in 2024. If you want to skip our overview of the US insurance industry and the latest trends and news, then you can take a look at the 5 Largest Insurance Companies in the US by Assets in 2024.

A little known fact about the insurance industry is that it's one of the oldest in the world. The history of insurance dates back to the time of the Code of Hammurabi, one of the first sets of written laws in human history. Since then, the insurance industry has existed in one form or another, and in 2024, the sector has to battle cyber threats and be ready for challenges ushered in by changing global climate trends.

As an example, insurance in America has been through quite some trouble over the past couple of years. An insurance company works by collecting money from its customers, and then making payouts in case any of them suffers from an accident or any other untoward life event. The weakness that these companies have to contend with is that they might be unable to make payouts if too many customers qualify for them, and for Florida insurers such as Weston Property & Casualty Insurance Co., the Southern Fidelity Insurance Company, and UPC Insurance, the nightmare scenario materialized in 2022 and 2023 as they went bankrupt. For UPC, the catastrophe came just after the firm announced that it would leave Florida, but the decision came too late and Hurricane Ian caused too much damage for the firm to be able to fund.

Since then, at least the property and casualty insurance market in the U.S. is on more stable footing. One report that attempts to cover the state of the US insurance industry comes from the Swiss Re Institute. According to the analysis, personal insurance in America can benefit from lower inflation, as buyer budgets accommodate for more insurance plans. Additionally, the report also adds that the US insurance industry ended up underwriting $33 billion in losses in 2023, making it unsurprising that the Florida insurance industry is now a significantly different sector than it was at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

Yet, while the US casualty insurance industry might be out of trouble for now, the first quarter of 2023 has also seen another sector become the center of media attention. This is the health insurance sector that seemingly got caught in the middle of a feud between law enforcement and ransomware organizations. One of America's biggest insurance companies, UnitedHealth Group Incorporated (NYSE:UNH), saw its claims processing disrupted in a cyberattack that saw reverberations all over America. This wasn't the end of the intrigue, as while UNH has since recovered, the group said to be responsible for the attack has pulled off a disappearing act.

According to Reuters, the ransomware group BlackHat's website now claims that the group has been taken down by coordinated action from law enforcement agencies. However, all agencies mentioned have either refused or failed to comment or outright denied disrupting the infrastructure.

Thought only casualty and health insurance were facing disruptions? Think again as March 2024 has also seen Fidelity Investments Life Insurance Company inform nearly 30,000 customers that a data breach led to sensitive details such as Social Security numbers being compromised.

To add to this, the collapse of the Francis Scott Bridge in Baltimore is also making marine insurers tremble. Experts believe that the partial bridge collapse could set new records in marine insurance, and some estimates believe that a payout could sit at a whopping $4 billion.

So, as the US insurance battles new challenges in the age of artificial intelligence, we decided to see which insurance companies in America have the greatest assets. A couple of top names are Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU), Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK-B), and MetLife, Inc. (NYSE:MET), and you can also read 15 Largest Insurance Companies In The US by Market Cap to see if the same companies are on that list.
