Allied Insurance was formed in 1929, and for a long time operated as a small but successful insurance company. In 1998 Allied merged with a larger insurance provider, Nationwide, and now all of Allied’s operations are under the name Nationwide. Through this merging, Allied was able to reach a much larger group of people, and expand their clientele.
How Allied/Nationwide compares to other insurance providers
Allied/Nationwide are different from their competitors largely because of the customer service they provide by acting as a smaller insurance provider. Nationwide’s motto is “Nationwide is on your side,” and it accurately represents the philosophy of Allied/Nationwide. They’re now a large company, but they have a small company mentality and approach.
