Huntington Bancshares became the latest bank to enter the life insurance sales game last week when it acquired the assets of an insurance agency in its hometown.

The Columbus-based bank bought Tice & Associates Agency Inc., and renamed it Huntington Life Insurance Agency Inc. Before the purchase, the $20.3 billion-asset Huntington sold credit insurance, disability coverage, and annuities. Now, it plans to offer term and single-premium life insurance and long-term care products underwritten by TransAmerica Corp., Aetna Inc., New England Life Insurance Co., and Midland Life Insurance Co.
