Genworth Financial is one of the largest U.S. insurance and financial services holding companies. Genworth was spun off in 2004 from conglomerate General Electric as an independent company.

Genworth has five primary lines of business:

Mortgage Insurance
Provides a safe and affordable option for homebuyers who want to buy or refinance a home with less than a 20% down payment
on a mortgage loan while protecting lenders against borrower default. Mortgage insurance is also cancelable, tax deductible and offers pre/post-purchase support.
Life Insurance
Protects against financial losses resulting from the death of the insured person.
Long Term Care Insurance
Pays for a range of long term care expenses, such as those associated with in-home care, assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
Payment Protection Insurance
Maintains customers' monthly repayments on financial commitments, such as mortgages, personal loans, and credit cards if they are unable to make payments due to accident, sickness, hospitalization or unemployment.
A contract between an insurance company and an individual for an annual source of regular income. Individuals pay into their annuity contract and then receive payments over a specified time period.

Genworth operates through three business segments: Retirement and Protection, International, and U.S. Mortgage Insurance.
Richmond, VA is home to the company's world headquarters as well as the headquarters for Retirement and Protection. International headquarters are in Raleigh, NC and London, England. The U.S. Mortgage Insurance headquarters are also in Raleigh.

Genworth reported revenues of $11.1 billion in 2007. Net income was $1.22 billion.


Genworth's founding companies date to 1871, when The Life Insurance Company of Virginia wrote its first policy. During the past 135 years, we have built an extensive family of financially solid, well-respected insurance companies and distribution partnerships.

- In 1955, we sold our first fixed life policy through independent brokerage
- In 1980, we wrote our first mortgage insurance policy
- For 24 years, we've provided universal life products
- For 30 years, we've provided long term care insurance
- For 33 years, we've provided payment protection insurance in Europe
