Segments The company’s segments include Allstate Protection and Allstate Financial. Allstate Protection segment This segment principally sells private passenger auto and homeowners insurance through agencies and directly through contact centers and the Internet. These products are marketed under the Allstate, Encompass, and Esurance brand names. The company serves four different consumer segments with interaction preferences (local advice and assistance versus self-directed) and brand preferences (brand-neutral versus brand-sensitive). Allstate brand auto and homeowners insurance products are sold primarily through the company’s agencies and serve customers who prefer local personal advice and service and are brand-sensitive. Allstate brand sales and service are supported through contact centers and the Internet. In the U.S., the company offers these Allstate brand products through approximately 9,600 Allstate exclusive agencies in approximately 9,300 locations. It also offers these products through approximately 1,800 independent agencies that are primarily in rural areas in the U.S. In Canada, the company offers Allstate brand products through approximately 710 employee producers working in 5 provinces across the country (Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia). Encompass brand auto, homeowners, and umbrella insurance products, sold primarily in the form of a single annual household (Package) policy are distributed through independent agencies, which serve consumers who prefer personal advice and assistance from an independent adviser and are brand neutral. Encompass brand products are distributed through approximately 2,500 independent agencies. Encompass provides personal property and casualty insurance products through independent agencies in the United States. Esurance brand auto and homeowners insurance products are sold directly to consumers online, through contact centers and through select agents, including Answer Financial. Esurance serves self-directed, brand-sensitive customers. Answer Financial, an independent personal lines insurance agency, serves self-directed, brand-neutral consumers who want a choice between insurance carriers. It offers comparison quotes for auto and homeowners insurance from approximately 25 insurance companies through its Website and through the phone and receives fee income for this service. This segment also produces and sells specialty auto products, including motorcycle, trailer, motor home, and off-road vehicle insurance policies; other personal lines products, including renter, condominium, landlord, boat, umbrella, and manufactured home insurance policies; commercial lines products for small business owners; roadside assistance products; and service contracts and other products sold in conjunction with auto lending and vehicle sales transactions. The company also participates in the involuntary or shared private passenger auto insurance business to maintain its licenses to do business in various states. This segment, through arrangements made with other companies, agencies, and brokers, might offer non-proprietary products to consumers when an Allstate product is not available.
