Now known as ReliaStar, predecessor Northwestern National Life Insurance Company (NWNL) was founded in 1885 in Minneapolis. Over the next 115 years it grew into one of the largest financial services companies in the United States, offering life insurance, annuities, mutual funds, group insurance and reinsurance. NWNL made a number of strategic acquisitions to strengthen existing product lines, broaden its base and expand into new markets. In 1967, it purchased North Atlantic Life Insurance Company of Jericho, NY. In 1977, it acquired Northern Life Insurance Company of Seattle. These companies were unified under the single brand ReliaStar in 1995. The company continued to grow by means of acquisitions, including Pilgrim Funds, a mutual funds business acquired in 1999. In 2000, ING Group acquired ReliaStar.
