A Time of Growth 

Fortis, Inc. – Assurant’s predecessor – was formed when AMEV/VSB of the Netherlands and AG, joined forces in the first cross-border European merger in the financial sector. Fortis was a financial services company that, through its operating companies and affiliates, provided specialty insurance, such as prefunded funeral insurance, and investment products to businesses and individuals in the United States.
