Pacific Mutual continued to grow during the second half of the 20th century, adopting the latest technology and offering innovative solutions. As a mutual company, Pacific Mutual was able to take a long-term view on projects that ultimately became immensely successful. Pacific Mutual kicked off its second century of service in 1968 with celebrations and a vision to be a dynamic "young world" organization. A few years later, the company established its new headquarters in Newport Beach.
In the early 1980s, the company began transitioning from an agency sales model to an independent brokerage model. It committed to rehabilitating the insurance company First Capital beginning in 1992, offering long-term coverage for the company's policyholders. In 1994, Pacific Mutual spun off the asset management company PIMCO, created 23 years earlier, as a $70 billion separate business.
