About Eagle Star
The Eagle Star Insurance Company plc was a leading British insurance business. Eagle Star was listed on the London Stock Exchange and was a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.
Eagle Star was founded by Edward Mountain in 1904 as the British Dominions Marine Insurance Company. It started writing fire and accident policies in 1911 and life assurance policies in 1916.
It expanded rapidly in its early years acquiring the Eagle (founded in 1807) in 1916 and both the Sceptre (founded in 1864) and the Star (founded in 1843) in 1917. It was renamed the Eagle & British Dominions in 1917 and Eagle Star in 1937.
A new administrative head office and computer centre was opened in Cheltenham in October 1968. In 1981 Eagle Star fought off a takeover bid from Allianz, the German insurance Group.
Eagle Star was acquired by BAT Industries for £968m in 1984. It is now one of the insurance brands owned by Zurich Financial Services although its active use has now been discontinued.
