Because nobody else would insure folks in the newly settled areas of the Midwest, settlers took matters into their own hands and formed local “Mutual” insurance companies. Swedish immigrants formed our company in 1860. Back then, it was known as “The Society to Help the Needy in Fire Damage.” This very hands on approach to insurance coverage has stood the test of time, and is as effective today as it was 150+ years ago. VSGMI still operates under the same basic principles that it did then. Our policyholders own and direct our company. Your neighbors, friends, and fellow policyholders make decisions about the company, so you can rest assured that they have your best interests in mind.
