Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do is more than a phrase it's part of the history of Combined Insurance. They're words we take to heart everyday and are a hallmark of our success.

HISTORY OF COMBINED INSURANCE

With $100, a positive spirit and a vision to make the world a better place, W. Clement Stone founded Combined Insurance in 1922. Mr. Stone's story is the stuff of legend. Our rich insurance history and his legacy drives our company to this day.

Starting in 1959, with an expansion into Australia, Combined Insurance embarked on an ambitious plan for growth. Nearly 50 years later, we've expanded to serve the global market, offering our products in 10 countries in addition to the United States.

Today, we're still making insurance history. On April 1, 2008, Aon Corporation, announced the closing of the sale of Combined Insurance to ACE Limited (NYSE: ACE), parent company of ACE Group Companies, a global leader in insurance and reinsurance. ACE joins Combined Insurance in a mutual commitment to outstanding customer service and timely claims payment. Our financial strength affords us a sound base to better serve our policyholders and pursue exciting growth opportunities in the future.
