The company went on to become a vehicle for protection, generational financial security, and career employment for the country’s most at-risk citizens.On January 20, 2023, Atlanta Life Insurance Company was acquired by Atlanta Life Holdings, an insurance holding company founded by a group of nationally recognized African-American entrepreneurs and executives with significant financial services expertise. The new ownership group is committed to continuing Mr. Herndon’s mission and building on Atlanta Life’s century of service.Today, Atlanta Life Insurance Company serves as a benefits provider to employers and employees, a risk-transfer / risk-sharing partner, a solution for achieving Supplier Diversity and DEI goals, and a partner to the community.
