Allstate Corporation is the second-largest US personal lines insurer, behind rival State Farm. The company sells auto, homeowners, and other property and casualty and life insurance products in Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
To reduce distribution expenses, Allstate has turned its agent-employees into independent contractors and launched an integrated distribution system that allows customers to do business through the Internet, the telephone, or through agents. Allstate has disposed of the majority of its operations outside North America (including Allstate Investments in Japan and the direct auto business in Germany and Italy), focusing on its core markets in Canada and the US.
