Ullico Inc., the Only Labor-Owned Insurance and Investment Company, Reports Record Pre-Tax Earnings During 2024 Annual Shareholders Meeting

May 9, 2024

Washington, D.C. (May 9, 2024) — Ullico Inc., the nation’s only labor-owned insurance and investment company, reported to shareholders a record for pre-tax earnings in fiscal 2023, reaching $68.6 million.

In addition, the company reached recent or record highs in investment assets under management, Professional Liability program premiums, and life and health gross written premiums.

“We are more profitable than we ever have been,” said Terry O’Sullivan, Chairman of the Board of Ullico Inc. “A key part of that success is executing on our long-term strategy to deliver quality products and timely solutions for the North American Labor Movement.”

In 2023, the company’s Real Estate Debt Group invested $627 million in 7 projects. The group includes the flagship J for Jobs, which requires the use of union labor and has created nearly 700 million work hours since its inception.

The Ullico Infrastructure Fund ended 2023 with $5.3 billion in assets under management. Investments include those in energy and water resources and transportation, including the JFK Airport New Terminal One, the largest public-private partnership in the U.S.

The company’s Real Estate Equity Group launched its first product, the “Ullico Value-Add Real Estate Fund I, LP”, a closed-end fund that invests alongside high-quality operating partners in real estate assets with value-creation potential.

Ullico’s founding entity, The Union Labor Life Insurance Company, was upgraded by AM Best in 2023 to A (Excellent), noting the company’s strong financial stability and competitive positioning.

Ullico Casualty Group, LLC (UCG) teamed with Great American Insurance Group to offer a commercial lines insurance program designed specifically for union halls, trusts fund offices, joint apprenticeship training committees and other union-related organizations. UCG also launched an Alternative Dispute Resolution program that is delivering better outcomes for union workers injured on the job and helping union contractors to be more competitive.

Reaching New Heights and Beyond

During the shareholders meeting, CEO and President Brian Hale discussed the company’s strategic vision going forward.

“Our success this past year doesn’t mean we are resting on our laurels,” said Hale. “These accomplishments are already opening doors for future opportunities. We are going to remain disciplined, but we are going to keep building and innovating to serve our affinity.”

Ullico was founded in 1927 to provide insurance to union workers, who until then were excluded by other insurance providers. Since then, the company has expanded, with lines of business in a variety of insurance products for organizations, groups, and individuals, as well as investment in commercial real estate debt and equity, infrastructure, and fixed income products.
