Fortune Global 500 Companies

QuickQuote Term Life Insurance Blog

Fortune magazine recently released its annual Fortune Global 500 Companies list. The rankings are based on 2005 revenue figures. The top 10 look like this:

  1. Exxon Mobil
  2. Wal-Mart Stores
  3. Royal Dutch Shell
  4. BP
  5. General Motors
  6. Chevron
  7. DaimlerChrysler
  8. Toyota Motor
  9. Ford Motor
  10. ConocoPhillips

ING Group, the parent company of ReliaStar Life Insurance Company, came in at #13.

American Intl. Group (AIG), the parent company of American General Life Insurance Company, came in at #20.

Aegon, the parent company of Transamerica Life Insurance Company and Transamerica Financial Life Insurance Company, came in at #149.

Prudential Financial, the parent company of Pruco Life Insurance Company, came in at #182.

Isn’t it interesting (andĀ perhaps somewhat frightening) that 9 of the top 10 companies on this year’s list are either petroleum or automobile companies?
