With Zurich’s announcement regarding the agreement to purchase the Wells Fargo & Co. crop insurance business, RCIS, Zurich will expand its U.S. footprint, in particular, with America’s farmers. We look forward to continue advocating for crop insurance protections for the benefit of America’s farmers, who face rising risks from storms and droughts that threaten their harvest in the short-run and competitiveness in the long.
Our goal is to help give America’s agricultural producers the insurance protection they need to make the investments needed to feed America and the world for decades to come.
“Zurich has been a part of American business for more than 100 years, and that means we understand the importance of farmers and the agriculture industry to the American economy,” said Mike Foley, CEO North America Commercial and regional chairman of North America. “This acquisition adds an exciting new chapter to our long history in the U.S. and illustrates how financial discipline allows us to capitalize on market opportunities that meet our strategic objectives.”
