Farmers Insurance will move its headquarters from its historic home on Wilshire Boulevard in the middle of Los Angeles to the Woodland Hills neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley, the company said. The insurance giant will relocate to offices that it took control of when Farmers acquired 21st Century Insurance in 2009. The offices had been 21st Century's headquarters and take up 500,000 square feet in two buildings on Owensmouth Avenue. Farmers will sell its three buildings in the Mid-Wilshire district, spokeswoman Erin Freeman said.
A low-profile, family-owned real estate investment firm has purchased a Warner Center office complex for about $120 million in one of the San Fernando Valley's largest office building transactions. Bentley Forbes Group bought 21st Century Plaza--which serves as the headquarters of 21st Century Insurance--from an affiliate of Los Angeles-based Tishman International Cos.

Secretary of State Kevin Shelley on Monday called for an investigation by the state's Fair Political Practices Commission into nearly $1 million in hidden campaign donations from a Los Angeles insurance company to the California Republican Party and county GOP committees in the closing days of last year's election. Shelley, a Democrat, also said he will press to close what he called a loophole in campaign finance law that permitted 21st Century Insurance Group of Woodland Hills to cloak contributions it made to the state Republican Party on Oct. 21 until well after votes had been counted.
The chief executive of 21st Century Insurance Group has resigned as insurance behemoth and majority shareholder American International Group continued to strengthen its hold over the smaller Woodland Hills-based insurer. William L. Mellick, president of 21st Century since 1994 and its CEO since 1995, said in a statement released Monday that he is resigning his positions at the company and on its board, effective Feb. 4., to "pursue other business and personal interests."

American International Group Inc., the world's largest insurer by market value, said Tuesday that it has offered to buy U.S. life insurer and annuity giant American General Corp. for about $23 billion, topping the deal agreed to last month with British life insurer Prudential. AIG said it would pay $46 per American General share in the proposed all-stock deal, based on Tuesday's closing market price of AIG common stock. That values the deal at $23.1 billion.

California Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi's drive to lower automobile and homeowner insurance rates is expected to pay off again today for consumers. This time, the beneficiaries will be auto policyholders with 21st Century Insurance Group and homeowners who are covered by Safeco Insurance. Savings will be about $96.5 million, the commissioner said. "It's another victory for Californians," Garamendi said.
