Delta Lloyd Group is a Dutch insurer with operations in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. It consists of Delta Lloyd, OHRA and ABN AMRO Verzekeringen together and a few minor banks. The company is the 6th insurer in the Netherlands with a market share of approximately 8%.
The company is owned by Aviva (43.1%), the Dutch foundation Nuts OHRA (8%) and publicly traded (38-42%).
The earliest predecessor of Delta Lloyd, the Hollandsche Societeit van Levensverzekeringen, was founded in 1807. In 1967 it merged with the Amsterdamsche Maatschappij van Levensverzekeringen and was renamed Delta. And in 1969 Delta merged with NedLloyd (not to be confused with the shipping company of the same name). In 1973 all shares in Delta were bought by the British firm Commercial Union (now Aviva).
In 1999 Delta Lloyd merged with OHRA. The company was renamed Delta Lloyd Group in 2002.

OHRA was formed in 1925 and was known as Onderlinge ziektekostenverzekeringsfonds van Hoogere RijksAmbtenaren (Mutual health insurance for senior civil servants).
ABN AMRO Verzekeringen
ABN AMRO Verzekeringen is a joint venture between ABN AMRO and Delta Lloyd, giving Delta Lloyd the exclusive right to sell insurance through ABN AMRO offices. It had a revenue of €900 million in 2006. For Delta Lloyd this joint venture represents a vital means of selling insurances.
