We will continue our success in our niche markets by focusing on the unique needs of both our producers and our policyholders. We will offer appropriate products which provide financial security and protection to our policyholders. We will deliver value and personalized service and support to our producers. We will build on the success of our core benefits strategy in the worksite marketplace and the success of our regional relationships in the group employee benefit marketplace.
