AFA's Growth Crosses International Lines
In the 21st century, AFA has continued to grow rapidly with continued strong internal growth plus the acquisitions of Mid-Continent Life and American Public Life in 2000. It has also planted the seeds for future expansion, through the establishment of other areas: the Latin American Life Division that sells insurance in 17 countries in Latin America; Pacific World Group, which brokers property and casualty insurance in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong; and Asset Services/InvesTrust, which provides investment management consulting and independent trust services.
Despite AFA’s impressive national and international success, Bill Cameron is proud that the company his grandfather and father started is still operated like a family business.
“We are committed to keeping the company private and independent,” he says. “I’m building on their foundation, and I want to pass these opportunities on to my kids and to future generations.”
