Selective Insurance Group, inc. is a holding company that offers property and casualty insurance products and services in United States.

Selective Insurance Group Inc is a New Jersey holding company that was incorporated in 1977. The Company offers property and casualty insurance products and services in the East and Midwest of the United States. It is operating in two segments: Insurance Operations, which sells property and casualty insurance policies and products; and Investment Operations, which invests the premiums collected by the Insurance Operations. The Company's Insurance Operations includes Property insurance, which generally covers the financial consequences of accidental loss of an insured's real and/or personal property. Property claims are generally reported and settled in a relatively short period of time; Casualty insurance, which generally covers the financial consequences of employee injuries in the course of employment and bodily injury and/or property damage to a third party as a result of an insured's negligent acts, omissions, or legal liabilities. Some casualty claims may take several years to be reported and settled; and Package insurance, which is a combination of property and casualty. Package claims mirror the reporting and settlement time of the underlying portion of coverage. Like many other property and casualty insurance companies, the Company depends on income from its investment portfolio for a significant portion of its revenues and earnings. The Company uses reinsurance to protect its capital resources and insure it against losses on property and casualty risks that underwrite. The Company uses two main reinsurance vehicles: (i) a reinsurance pooling agreement between its Insurance Subsidiaries in which each company agrees to share in premiums and losses based on certain specified percentages; and (ii) reinsurance contracts and arrangements that cover various policies that its Insurance Operations issue to insured. It competes with the in Regional insurers, with Cincinnati Financial Corporation, Erie Indemnity Company, abd The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc., and in National insurers, with Liberty Mutual Group, Travelers Companies, Inc., The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc. Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company; and Zurich Financial Services Group in Direct insurers, with GEICO and The Progressive Corporation. The Company's Insurance Operations and Investment Operations are heavily regulated by the departments of insurance in the states in which its Insurance Subsidiaries are organized and licensed.
