Bamboo Insurance Acquires Assets of First American Property and Casualty Insurance Agency
Bamboo Insurance, a reimagined insurance company focused on transparency, customer advocacy and a frictionless experience, has acquired certain of the assets of First American Property and Casualty Insurance Agency (“FAPCIA”) from parent company First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a leading provider of title insurance, settlement services and risk solutions for real estate transactions that traces its heritage back to 1889. First American announced in October 2020 its intent to exit its property and casualty business and to maintain focus on its core business.
The assets acquired include over $22 million in premium in both personal and commercial lines underwritten by leading third-party carriers. FAPCIA’s staff will continue to provide excellent service to policyholders as part of the Bamboo team.
“Today Bamboo begins a new chapter in its growth,” according to CEO John Chu. “Adding full-service personal and commercial lines agency capabilities allows us to offer additional products to a much broader set of customers across the continental United States.”
Bamboo Insurance has historically offered flexible and transparent insurance options, including homeowners, dwelling fire and ancillary products in the state of California. Starting today, Bamboo’s new agency operation will be able to meet the needs of its customers by offering auto, renters, condominium, commercial lines, and a host of other insurance coverages alongside its existing products across the nation.
Adding an agency of this caliber will allow Bamboo Insurance to grow faster and expand further into the insurance value chain.
