In 1977, CSI (Central States Indemnity Co. of Omaha) was formed to provide a unique credit card insurance product that protected bank credit card customers by insuring their payments in the event of the customer’s death, disability or involuntary unemployment.

In 1992, Warren Buffett, through his company Berkshire Hathaway, acquired CSI — making it a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., one of the strongest, most admired companies in the world.
