The History

Transamerica has stood for innovation since 1904. Entrepreneur Amadeo P. Giannini founded Bank of Italy in San Francisco to make financial services available to everyone- an innovative concept at the time. After the major earthquake of 1906, Giannini set up loans to help the community rebuild, secured with only a handshake. As his business grew, he consolidated his bank in 1928 which came to be known as Bank of America. Two years later, the organization acquired the Occidental Life Insurance Company through the newly created holding company, Transamerica Corporation.
