Delek acquired Republic in 2006 for $290 million, which is still the largest acquisition of a foreign insurance company by an Israeli company. The acquisition made through Delek’s financial arm, Delek Capital Ltd. The company has been trying to sell Republic without success for some time.

Delek also controls Israeli insurance company The Phoenix Holdings Ltd. (TASE: PHOE1;PHOE5).
