Our goal is steady, reliable performance over the long term.

Our general account (portfolio) of more than $100 billion is comprised of 99% investment-grade fixed-income securities.1 Investment-grade securities are generally of higher quality and are more likely to repay principal than non-investment-grade securities. This disciplined approach to investment management has historically provided strong returns and minimal losses.

1 Fixed income is any type of investment where the borrower or issuer is obliged to make payments of a fixed amount on a fixed schedule. Bonds and mortgages are prime examples of fixed income investments.

In-house risk-management enables us to react to market events in real time.

We use expert, in-house risk-management to monitor and manage risk in the moment – not after the fact. This allows us to make strategic investments to offset potential losses due to extreme market events – from general market turbulence to periodic financial crises. Most insurance companies do this to some degree – but we’re one of the few with in-house capabilities.
