Definity is guided by our purpose — building a better world by helping our clients and communities adapt and thrive. We strive to use the power of our business to create positive change for our environment, our people, and our communities, now and in the future. Since writing our first insurance policy through the Economical Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Berlin in 1871, we’ve always been neighbours helping neighbours.
