Family Values Drive AFA’s Success


Founded on the principles of fairness and financial security more than 50 years ago, American Fidelity Assurance Company (AFA) has achieved great success as one of the largest private, family-owned life insurance companies in the nation.*

The Oklahoma City-based Company serves more than 1 million Customers in 49 states and 23 countries. American Fidelity has ranked among FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” in America nine times. Since 1982, AFA has consistently been rated “A+” by A. M. Best Company, one of the leading insurance rating services in America.

At the heart of the Company’s achievements are  three generations of the Cameron family, men whose resilience and steadfast vision enabled them to triumph over professional setbacks and personal tragedy.

“This is a family business, and I like the feeling that I am adding on to the foundation that my grandfather and father built,” says company Chairman and CEO Bill Cameron. “I am proud of the products and services we sell and the difference we make in people’s lives. Reputation means everything.”
