Esurance was founded in 1998 in the height of the dot com era, unfortunately for the company, the dot com bubble burst the next year. However, Esurance had built a very successful web portal that was still very effective in gaining online traffic curious about auto insurance. Seeing this as a positive resource for the future, Esurance was acquired by the much larger White Mountains Insurance group. When internet traffic increased and the market settled, Esurance had a strong base to continue offering online auto insurance. They have grown to serve 30 states, and employ over 1700 people around the United States. However, a slight economic downturn in 2008 coupled with a significantly more competitive online market, lead to a drop of 5% of total policies written over a 2 year span. Hoping to cut their losses in 2011, White Mountains sold the Esurance Company and brand to Allstate. It is currently operating as a full subsidiary, still processing over 2 billion dollars in gross premiums per year.
