The President’s Message

The United States experienced great economic growth this past year, starting with tax changes that enhanced consumer income, job growth, and the lowest unemployment in 50 years.

ELCO Mutual benefitted from this growth, too. Our admitted assets increased over 15% to $878 million. In addition, our surplus increased by 17% and is now over $68 million.

With growth comes change. As our assets continued building, we decided to enter into an agreement with J.P. Morgan Asset Management, Inc. (JPMAM). JPMAM manages over $3 trillion across the country and has a staff dedicated to ELCO Mutual. This partnership will allow ELCO Mutual’s growth to continue, greatly improve the quality of investments, and provide valuable data necessary to make sound investment decisions.

In the early 1980s, we decided to dedicate our products and marketing to the senior market. We have been successful for a variety of reasons. First, our products are easy to understand, unlike many available today. Another contributing factor is our excellent customer service. When you call ELCO Mutual, you will always speak with a real, live person.

More than anything, our 72 years of success stems from our dedication to our policyholders. Our business continuously instills the values that were established in 1946: well-defined plans, proficient personnel, and a progressive sales force.

We are confident in our sustainable growth and look forward to the new opportunities that await in 2019.
