The Hartford Financial Services Group is one of the largest investment and insurance companies in the United States with over $278 billion in assets. The Hartford Stag logo is a symbol of dependability.

The Hartford provides: mutual funds and annuities; life insurance and group and employee benefits; automobile and homeowners products; and business insurance.

The Hartford serves customers through independent agents and brokers, financial institutions, affinity groups and via the Internet. Approximately 11,000 independent agencies and more than 100,000 registered broker/dealers sell the company's products. The company is the largest seller of individual annuities in the U.S. and has been a provider of auto and homeowners insurance to members of AARP since 1984.

The company has 18,800 employees.

In 2014, the company reported revenues of $18.6 billion and net income of $798 million.

"Strong fourth quarter results concluded an outstanding year for The Hartford,” said The Hartford's Chairman and CEO Christopher Swift. “For the full year, expanding profit margins in P&C, Group Benefits and Mutual Funds drove a 16% increase in core earnings per diluted share and a one point improvement in core earnings ROE to 8.4%. We also sold the Japan annuity business during the year, significantly reducing the company’s risk profile and contributing to the return of over $2 billion of capital to shareholders. As we enter 2015, I am pleased with how the company’s businesses are balancing profitability and top-line growth in this pricing and interest rate environment.”


The company was founded In 1810 when a group of Connecticut businessmen created the Hartford Fire Insurance Company which insured homes and businesses from fire risk, a major fear during this time.


The Hartford offers: medical and dental coverage; group life insurance; disability coverage and accidental death and dismemberment. Employees can also receive discounts on annuities and personal insurance through payroll deduction.
