StanCorp is a 100 year old business with 58 offices, 2,798 employees and $2.34 billion total revenue in 2005. StanCorp is a leading provider of employee benefit products and services serving the life and disability insurance needs of employer groups and individuals; through its subsidiaries, it has the authority to underwrite insurance products in all 50 states. StanCorp also provides accidental death and dismemberment coverage, dental insurance, annuity products, retirement plan products and services and investment advisory services. Its mortgage business originates and services small fixed-rate commercial mortgage loans for the investment portfolios of its insurance subsidiaries and for sale to institutional investors.

The acquisition will give retirement plan customers of StanCorp access to RightPath, Invesmart's next generation defined contribution plan.
