Transamerica Life Canada
Transamerica Life Canada continues a tradition of service established more than 80 years ago.
In 1904, a young entrepreneur by the name of A.P. Giannini founded the Bank of Italy in San Francisco. He wanted to provide financial services to small businesses and others not served by the established banks. Demand was high and his bank grew quickly. Giannini established Transamerica Corporation in 1928 as a holding company to support interstate branch banking and diversification. Two years later, Transamerica entered the life insurance business with the acquisition of the Occidental Life Insurance Company. TIME magazine would later call Giannini one of the “Builders and Titans” of the 20th century. In 1999, Transamerica was acquired by AEGON and became part of their worldwide network.
