The American Interstate Insurance Company fills a specific niche within the AmeriSafe family of insurance companies. Rather than serving the public directly, American Interstate Insurance Company acts as an underwriting company for a segment of policies sold by the parent corporation. Since they do not sell to the public, the company could be thought of as no longer selling insurance, even though they are now part of a much larger, broader scope of insurance providers.
American Interstate Insurance Company was founded in 1973 as a fire and casualty insurance company. The company continued to operate independently until 2010 when they were acquired by the AmeriSafe Insurance Group. In 2010, the company had over 9 million dollars in assets, including more than 3 million dollars in working capital.
