Here are a few stand-out stats that highlight our financial health & stability

New coverage ranks us #1
Legal & General America is ranked the number one provider of term life insurance in the US, issuing more than $63 billion in new coverage in 2021. We also issued approximately $1.1 billion in new annuity contracts last year.1

$780 billion of coverage in force
Legal & General America continues to grow at a record pace — our life insurance in force is over $780 billion.2

Over $8 billion in invested assets

Capitalization is more than double the industry average
Capitalization may sound like a big word, but in the financial world it’s a big deal.  It assesses the level of a company’s assets available to pay future liabilities, such as current and future policyholder benefits. The Pure Capital Ratio measures the cushion a company has against a decline in the value of its assets. Our Pure Capital Ratio was 19.4%, more than the industry average of 12.8%.4
