World Financial Group is a subsidiary of Transamerica. Transamerica and its subsidiaries currently service about 19 million customers. The company was started in 1904 by an Italian immigrant who wanted to make financial services accessible to everyone. The company's first headquarters were a converted saloon in San Francisco. The company is still based in San Francisco, but is now located in a pyramid-shaped skyscraper that is a familiar part of the San Francisco skyline. In 2014, World Financial Group released a warning to customers involving a scam using the company's logo that promised loans to clients as a way of gleaning personal information. The company re-asserts that it provides financial services but does not provide personal loans.
