Our Story: The Art of Successfully Reinventing a Stock Company in a Mutual Way

01. Strategy

The Executive Team formally organized Innovated Holdings, Inc. on February 7, 2019, with considerable intent and purpose:

02. Purpose

History-Making Moment

While it wasn’t without several challenges, CFM Insurance made history in the insurance industry as the first-ever chapter 380 mutual insurance company to acquire a chapter 379 stock company. On March 1, 2019, CNI became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Innovated Holdings. Innovated Holdings, a CFM subsidiary.

As a once small, modest Mutual, CFM proved what its newfound futuristic mindset was truly made of by taking on a stock insurance company comprised of a completely different product line and market than its own.

It’s never easy navigating through unchartered waters. Still, the Executive Team saw potential in the CNI book of business, employee family, and promising future if it could adopt the same message and business model as CFM. Thus, they willingly jumped through as many hoops as necessary to close a doomed final chapter for CNI and begin writing a whole new book under the Innovated Holdings umbrella. The main character?
